Alonzo Spellman Arrested…

…again. Only question is, what the hell is he doing in Tulsa now? Smoking cigarettes and singing outside the projects in Chicago, walking down the road shirtless in January, disrupting a flight, we can see that. But Tulsa? Unfortunate. Share

The Gatorade Shower

When someone invariably interviews New York Giants players about the claim that the 1986 Giants invented the Gatorade Shower, please remember, the 1984 Chicago Bears invented the practice, not the 1986 Giants. When they first started claiming this, I clearly remembered it. On November 25, 1984, the 1984 Chicago Bears clinched the first Bear championship [...]

Arizona Republic Article

Let me Make 1 Thing Perfectly Clear

Actually two things. As a huge Chicago Bears fan: 1. I do not want Derrick Anderson. 2. I do not want Donovan McNabb. I get a lot of “hey, how you doing, how about those Bears, boy, at least they’ll be better once they go after Anderson/McNabb.” So, to make my opinion on the subject [...]
