What goes on in your own home is your business. It’s between you and your family. Unless you or a family member decides to broadcast it on social media for the world to see. Thanks to the former reality show personality, and wife of Jay Cutler, we now get to see a glimpse inside their household.

Not that we should care, but apparently we do, cuz Deadspin decided to devote a whole post to this. Deadspin isn’t wrong either.

chicago-bears-versus-steelers-carrie-underwood

You heard it here first in May of 2013; a full day and a half before the actual announcement was made. Carrie Underwood became the new Sunday Night Football singer. She replaced Faith Hill last fall with the SNF on NBC theme song.

Also, it should be noted that no one, and I mean no one, cares about who breaks a news story first other than individual reporters. And really only the individual reporter cares about the stories that he/she broke first.

HBO Real Sports’ 1985 Chicago Bears: MUST WATCH


1985 chicago bears

I should not have doubted HBO Real Sports. I have to take back what I said previously about their 1985 Chicago Bears feature. I made those statements based off their press release previewing the episode and hyping it up. After seeing it, I have to say that I was wrong. Completely wrong.

You have to see the Real Sports piece on the 1985 Chicago Bears. It was incredible. Incredibly good. It was the polar opposite of the puff piece features you see on local Chicago TV.

Bulls miss Joakim Noah like the deserts miss the rain


LeBron James Joakim Noah

Joakim Noah played 22 minutes yesterday, and 23 minutes in the previous contest. However, he’s just not truly himself. Noah is active, but the he’s the Noah we know and love who was first team All-NBA and the league’s Defensive Player of the Year.

Joakim Noah has entirely missed 12 of 46 games this season, and the Chicago Bulls miss him. Like the deserts miss the rain. (credit the late ’90s Saturday Night Live re-occurring character “Mango” who made that song popular)

Chicago Bulls: maybe it’s time to push the panic button


chicago-bulls-cameron-bairstow

Maybe it is indeed time for fans of the Chicago Bulls to push the panic button. I still maintain that they’re going to be fine in the end and that all the negativity we’ve heard lately is an overreaction. The main producer for ESPN’s NBA programming agrees with what I said a few days ago that the Chicago Bulls should be alright when it counts.

However, I also understand the causes for concern. There are plenty of issues to be worried about.

Soccer is a universal language, a lingua franca that unites people the world over. A truly global sport. Now, more than ever before, you can see youngsters playing soccer in any park or street wearing the colours of teams from far off lands that they might never witness in the flesh.

Krzyzewski 1,000 more a Disney movie than anything


krzyzewski coach k

It was all set up so perfectly for the event strategy of Mike Krzyzewski 1,000.

Coach K was to become the first coach to get a grand in the very same venue in which he passed up Bobby Knight for the all-time wins record. That venue happened to be Madison Square Garden which bills itself as “the world’s most famous arena.”

MSG is located in the media capital of the world, New York City, which is just two hours away from West Point. Obviously, Army is where Coach K paid his dues and cut his teeth on his rise to power. Same goes for Knight, his college coach and mentor.
