    Lovie Smith out after 9 seasons as Bears coach
    The epitaph for Lovie Smith's tenure as head coach of the Bears could read, "He couldn't fix the offense." For all the good things Smith did in his nine years in Chicago, his undoing was his inability to take care of the side of the ball in which he...

    Rosemont makes a play for Cubs, but they'd rather play the clown
    I’m still waiting for confirmation from the Elias Sports Bureau, but I believe that Tom Ricketts now leads the Chicago Owners League in negotiating errors. It’s hard to think he surpassed Michael McCaskey in such a short time, but the...

    Kerry Wood was going to retire. No, wait, he wasn’t. Kerry Wood didn’t think he could pitch in the majors anymore. No, wait, he wanted to pitch one more time. It looked as if the popular Cubs pitcher who was viewed by some as Tom Ricketts&...

    Village idiots rejoice: Another Zambrano apology tour
    I believe Carlos Zambrano. When he told Comcast SportsNet that only about three teammates contacted him after he was placed on the We’re Sick Of You List, I believe him. Everything else is a crock. No, wait, I believe Zambrano when he says he...
