Over a year later, it’s the same story. And unfortunately, again, the anger is directed at the wrong people.
First, the show will be awful, even by reality TV standards.
Jimmy Butler has been a huge part of this Chicago basketball season even existing in the second round of the playoffs, which, while not exactly a medal of honor, is still better than many expected with all the obstacles that had to be dealt with—no superstar, injuries and illnesses, Scalabrine withdrawal, etc.
Celebrate them as they work for us, making us feel good. Buy stock in the slogans. Don attire supporting them. Forget about them once they can’t fight for us anymore. Am I talking about soldiers or football players?
In much the same way rule changes have been implemented in youth sports to make them safer in hopes the grown-up games evolve—changing a culture of violence in hockey, for example—the prejudicial culture in sports needs to change from early on.
What we got here with the Bulls is failure to communicate.
If it’s even true it’s not less impressive because—and I can only speak from what others have told me—food poisoning is one of the worst non-life-threatening non-Nicholas Cage movie things one can experience.
KYLE LONG? What the…? KYLE LONG? But there were so many better guys availa… KYLE LONG?
Reno Saccoccia is not a condition that involves flesh-eating bacteria breeding inside one’s kidneys. Nor is it a casino featuring the comedic stylings of Carlos Mencia. It’s neither of those awful things.
The White Sox supposedly have a progressive statistical GM with a manager willing to embrace a numbers-driven era. An organization with those in charge on the same page. The manager is willing, right?
It was a really, really, really, really, really, really bad week to say the least. Chicagoans should count themselves lucky that it was mostly just our commutes and basements that were ruined.
As we now immerse ourselves back into sports after the most recent act of ignorant spinelessness to try to disrupt the joy that defines the competitions we watch, I sincerely hope that our greatest fears of what can happen at a celebration (because, really, that’s what any race or game or match is—even at Wrigley Field these days) do not cause us to temper ourselves in future celebrations.
A fan base that has been criticized for putting football ahead of more important things went and put football ahead of more important things.
One of my favorite things to ever happen in sports is occurring this weekend.
At no point would Griner be the best player on the board. She is not one of the top 60 as-yet-to-be NBA players in the world.
Enough of this two leagues with different rules nonsense.
I won’t pretend I knew Roger Ebert personally, but his death affects me as a great admirer of his and what he stood for.
The only way to find out if that request rings the Cubs’ phones is if Carlos Marmol keeps pitching, though. He needs to be given the opportunity to possibly return to the type of guy Jason Goff referred to as “You won’t hit me, but I might hit you.”
Here are three reasons each to love and hate the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs respectively in 2013.
