Return of the Dick

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

We have documented before on this website the pox that one Dick Stockton seems to have brought upon Chicago athletics any time he calls a game. Or at least any time he calls a Cubs game, as he did for both of their wildly unsuccessful postseason trips in 2007 and ...

IU Football Finally Beats Michigan!

Monday, October 26th, 2009

This may be the only time in life I ever use this headline, so take it easy, Wolverine fans. Anyway, during yesterday's telecast of the Saints-Dolphins game, Rumors and Rants fan-favorite Dick Stockton brought up a conversation that the announcing crew had with Miami quarterback Chad Henne earlier this week. Stockton noted ...

Dick Strikes Back

Friday, February 13th, 2009

We've already told you that Dick Stockton is the bane of Chicago's existence. Multiple times. And we still mean it even after living through Blago. Thursday night, Dick was at it again, behind the microphone for the Bulls' game against the Heat. And once again, it did not work out well ...

What The Hell’s Going On Out There?

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

It pains me to rehash a Vince Lombardi catchphrase that's oft-rehashed by Chris Berman, but I have been left with no choice. As of this past week, the NFL has officially ceased making any kind of sense whatsoever. I'm not sure where to start, or where to finish. But that's ...

We’re Kind Of A Big Deal

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

We're not the kind of fellows who like to toot our own horn, but it's been a pretty groundbreaking couple of weeks here at Rumors and Rants for making sizable footprints that have changed the world as we know it. OK, so maybe that toot was a little strong. But ...

The Great Depression

Monday, October 6th, 2008

First, a note from The Chairman: It's my kind of team Chicago is My kind of team Chicago is One team that always, always lets you down It's myyyyy... kiiiiiind... of... team! I guess the old adage is true: father knows best. The day before the Cubs started the NLDS against the Dodgers, my dad came out ...

TBS Dicks Over Cubs

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

My worst fears have come to fruition. Just a few days ago, I was convinced that the Cubs were unquestionably the team to beat heading into the National League playoffs -- the first time I've felt that way since I was a naive 7-year-old in 1989. And then TBS had to ...

Keep This Dick Away From The Cubs

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

For the past 99 seasons, every Cubs team has had some form of kryptonite. But this year, people are treating the Cubs differently. Try as they might, no one can find a serious flaw in this well-oiled machine. Well, those people don't know Dick. Dick Stockton, that is. Stockton is a familiar (ugly) ...
