My 10 Most Agonizing Sports Losses

Friday, April 9th, 2010

The look on Willie Veasley's face after Monday night's championship game loss to Duke says it all. Actually, you can't see his face, which says even more. It was one of the most heart-wrenching losses that one could experience as a player or fan, and I don't say that just ...

Chicago Makes Sure It’s A Bear Market

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Super Bowl Ironies

A few leftover notes from this year's Super Bowl: - How fitting is it that the two players most responsible for breaking Colts fans' hearts in this year's Super Bowl were rooted on by the very same fans in their collegiate careers? Purdue alum Drew Brees was the MVP of the game, ...

Fast Willie Might Be Old, But Still Fast Enough For Plodding Bears

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

But could one possible reason for candidates jolting the Bears be the fact that Chicago ...

No Offense Lovie, But I’d Rather Work For Al Davis

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Now that the 2009-10 regular season is in the books it's time for us to reflect on just what the heck happened over the past few months in the NFL. This fall and winter had some great stories and some major controversies. But frankly, none of that interests us here ...
