The 20 Best Desserts in Chicago

From humble to haute, these sweets deliver pure pleasure. I've been missing Chicago for a long time now. Southern California is great for the weather, the beaches, and the mountains. That's been enough to keep me here, but I miss Chicago's sports scene, its...

National Dance Like a Chicken Day

This is National Dance Like a Chicken Day, May 14th. Many people think this is the day they can go out in public and shamefacedly do the Chicken Dance. Although the Chicken Dance has been around for years, the first time I ever heard of it I was at a minor league...

Chicago Sports Update 12-16-15

As a Chicago White Sox fan I'm sligtly disappointed with yesterday's trade for Todd Frazier... but in the end it might be a very, very good one. I was hoping Avi Garcia would be traded rather than Trace Thompson. Trace was one of the Sox bright spots last year, but...

Question for Chicago Bears Fans

Hey Bears fans, got a question for you.With just a couple more preseason games before this years version of the NFL season begins and the Bears try to prove that they really are the Monsters of the Midway rather than the Midwives of the Midway. They've got a tough...

A Few Thoughts About Chicago Sports – 7/5/15

The Cubs are pretty good this year, and maybe getting better. They just happen to be good in a year the Cardinals are very, very good. Put the Cubs in the National League West and they're only a game out. Put them in the East and they're just a half game away from the...

Making Chicago Sports Fans Feel Good

I remember every one of the moments depicted in this video: Mark Buerle's perfect game, Michael Jordan's game winners, the Blackhawk Stanley Cup victories, Walter Payton  and the Super Bowl Bears, and Devin Hester's ability to find openings where there didn't appear...

Bo’s Jackson on Bo Jackson

If you’re a White Sox fan or just a fan of kids who like sports, you should love this. Adam LaRoche’s son, Drake, had a few questions for 52 year old, Bo Jackson, or maybe just one: Who are you? Bo was happy to tell the 13-year-old about Bo Jackson.

St Patrick’s Day in Chicago

Most people are aware that Chicagoans go crazy on St. Patrick's Day. Everybody wears green, has green frosted donuts for breakfast, green frosted cookies and cup-cakes for snacks, corned beef and cabbage for dinner. They watch the St. Patrick's Day parade, walk past...

For a Moment I’ll Miss Brandon Marshall

On the one hand I'm sad to see Brandon Marshall leave the Bears. For two of three years he was a great receiver, perhaps the greatest the Bears have ever had. Last year he seemed to revert to the problem-child he became in Denver and was in Miami. In Chicago he...

No one meant more to White Sox than Minoso

The very first time I went to Comiskey Park, Minnie Minoso homered. It was also the first run I saw scored while I watching a game at Comiskey park. In a way I was new to baseball. Although I played it in elementary school, I was neither very good at the game, nor was I very interested in it.
