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.
One good thing about the Cubs being likely bad in 2013 is that nobody can chalk it up to a goat.
I’ve watched John Ziegler from afar for a while now. As one of his Twitter followers (hey, follow back, dude!) I’ve seen him retweet every person that praises him and bully dissenters on a daily basis.
With all the excitement and gravitas and craziness of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament come a few lame byproducts.
I refuse to be part of the comfortable group of ignorant. So, besides not raping people, I’d like to do my small part by making fun of some idiots that think stuff like this is okay on various levels.
I suck. Those of you who take the time to type comments on columns on the Internet—pardon me, “articles,” to use your term—know that already. But when it comes to filling out an NCAA Tournament bracket, I really suck.
It has gotten to the point for me, though, that whether Rose is on the court in the final 17 regular season games and/or playoffs or not, I don’t care all that much.
Of course there’s no way to be sure on any signing or trade or draft pick until after there has been actual significant game play, but as of right now I like the Phil Emery moves.
Wrigley Field is a terrible place for children. It’s been mostly a terrible place for adults, too, but not so much due to the park’s amenities.
Cue the inspirational horns and strings. Get Bob Costas cozied up near a fireplace in a flame-retardant turtleneck.
