@MelissaJMassey i know how you feel
The Chicago Blackhawks kicked major ass in the regular season. They have the whole city excited with aspirations of attending another ticker-tape parade. Yet I find myself more interested in what happened today when both CSN and their Blackhawks reporter decided to part ways. As weird as it may appear, this seems like more of a story than the beating of the dead horse that is Derrick Rose’s playing status for this season.
Charles Tillman is playing at a level that has him in conversation for defensive player of the year. He is without a doubt playing at an All-Pro level and has established himself as one of the better cornerbacks in the NFL. As valuable as he is to the defense, you cannot fault him for wanting to be present for the birth of his soon-to-be newborn daughter.
Jay Cutler has got to be the worst person in the whole wide world, don’t you agree?
Jerry Sandusky was found guilty of sexually molesting little boys using his charity foundation to cultivate and farm his victims for him to prey on for the better part of over 20 years. This actually came as a shock to all those at Penn State University due to the fact that Sandusky was viewed as a person that loved helping children and devoted his life to them. Many people didn’t want to believe it and even after numerous reports and testimonies and victim accounts…they still don’t believe it.
Nicklas Lidstrom, at the age of 42 and playing his entire 20 year NHL career with the Detroit Red Wings, has decided to retire from the NHL.
“My drive and motivation are not where to need to be to play at this level,” Lidstrom said as he tried to hold back tears, “Retiring today allows me to walk away with pride, rather than have the game walk away from me”
Today, Kerry Wood has announced his retirement.
It was nearly a lifetime ago that a Kerry Wood cemented his legacy with Chicago and major league baseball. He was just a small town kid called up to play in the big leagues and left an indelible mark on everyone who would call themselves Cubs fans.
As if things couldn’t get any worse for the New Orleans Saints, its turns out to just get more ugly for the NFL franchise that was just penalized for instituting a bounty system that resulted in the loss of their head coach for the whole season. ESPN is reporting that Mickey Loomis, Saints GM (who is facing an 8 game suspension for the bounty scandal) had an electronic device in his Superdome suite that had been secretly re-wired to enable him to eavesdrop on visiting coaching staffs for nearly three NFL seasons.
