Tumbling Tumbleweed

When even my go-to guy Brad Biggs doesn’t have anything to report on his blog, you know there hasn’t been much to write about lately.

Some quick hits:

Apparently, Chris Williams’ arms are short, which may have affected his draft position. Yeah, right. If the Bears hadn’t taken Williams, another team probably would have snatched him with the very next pick. Maybe we should just look up and see what Quasim Mitchell and Bernard Robertson are doing?

Lovie says Cedric is still his main man. No surprise there. I can almost hear Dick Jauron from Buffalo saying “I like Cedric, I’d like Cedric if I were still in Chicago, I like that Cedric is a football player….

Last weekend (a little late on this one), Tony Romo threw out the first pitch and sang the seventh-inning stretch at Wrigley. Tony freakin’ Romo. The quarterback of the Dallas freakin’ Cowboys. What the hell is Cubs’ management thinking. Yes, he played at Eastern Illinois. He’s also from Wisconsin, grew up a Packer fan, and now plays quarterback for a team any self-respecting Bear fan should hate. Thankfully, he was booed by the crowd. Sorry to those that think it’s classless to boo anyone, but that’s just not right, having him singing at Wrigley. I was at the Cubs game Thursday, and guess who threw out the first pitch? Steve Smith, Carolina Panthers receiver. Why? I don’t get that one either. Was it “players who have killed the Bears” week?

I’m not even going to comment on this one. All I have to say is, Lance Briggs, what are you thinking? That’s fine if you want to get rich and buy fast cars, score women, whatever, but….man.

    Now you have me dreading the Cubs having Brett Favre throw out the first pitch, then dueting with John Madden for Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

  2. Let these Bear Killers come into Wrigley Field and show them some hospitality. You never if a team releases any of these guys, become free agents or whatever the case is, they might look back at their experense here in Chicago and want to come back here to retire. Far fetched yes. Outside the box thinking yes. Would they come to Chicago soaly base on the first pitch or sang the 7th inning streach doubtful. As a fan I welcome with open arms any former or active NFL player come into Wrigley Field for the most beautiful baseball experense of a lifetime.
