  • Ask Paul Sullivan

    Paul Sullivan returns from an extended separation from his Tribune e-mail box in a special, Soriano-free edition of Ask Paul. I'm excited to witness that the team has developed, step by step, without a lot of us noticing, a killer instinct they didn't...
  • Mike Downey remembers Jerome Holtzman

    A small envelope would come once in a while, familiar Evanston return address on the outside, familiar insight on the inside. Any word from Jerome Holtzman was welcome. He was a gruff man but a gentleman, a newspaper bulldog but an old softie, a U.S....
  • Holtzman smoked foes, lit up rooms

    My contributions to Tribune lore have been modest and few, but one for which I will take credit occurred during the major league All-Star Game in Cleveland in 1981. I happened to have a press box seat next to Jerome Holtzman, a legend with the Sun-Times....
  • Zell says Cubs are No. 1 -- to be sold off

    On his first day in charge of Tribune Co., Sam Zell set an ambitious goal: Sell the Chicago Cubs by opening day. The Cubs, one of baseball's most storied yet least successful clubs, are expected to command a record sale price for a major league team. If...

  • Winter Classic ad stars Harry Caray, Wrigley Field

  • Vin Scully named best sportscaster ever

     
    You are reading the 4,000th post in WatchDog's 20-month history. Thanks as always for your loyalty, support and contributions. To mark the occasion we link to Tom Hoffarth's post on the top 50 sports broadcasters of all time, as per......
  • Bob Costas calls Yanks opener, talks baseball voices

     
    Here is my Friday column, in which I lead with more of what Yankees president Randy Levine considers media-generated whining about the "high home" camera at Yankee Stadium. OK, I'm sick of this topic and will move on. If YES......
  • Zambonis, tag potentially dangerous to young people

     
    I have not had a chance to watch the reviewer DVDs of the "E:60" or "Real Sports" episodes debuting on ESPN and HBO Tuesday night at 7 and 10, respectively. But I'm usually up for providing free ads for people......
  • Vin Scully, Ralph Lawler and Bob Miller talk about Ernie Harwell

     
    Vin Scully spoke Tuesday about Ernie Harwell, the legendary Detroit Tigers broadcaster who died of cancer at the age of 92. The Dodgers broadcaster called Harwell, "a Georgia boy with a twinkle in his voice." What Scully most remembers, he......
  • Experimental inner-city, all-boys school gets a grade of `incomplete,' for now

     
    There's been a refreshing "Stand and Deliver" quality to the stories about Urban Prep Academy for Young Men, the all-black, all-male public charter school in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood that's sending all 107 graduates to college this fall. This week...

    Hull to Blackhawks: Savor the Stanley Cup moment
    It wasn't until decades later, after his son Brett won it all, that Bobby Hull finally got to drink out of a Stanley Cup. At a golf event, not after a clincher. And his shoulders were so bad he couldn't lift it. So as the Chicago Blackhawks closed in on...
