Yes Bears fans, it’s that time again….Warm up the chili, crack open the beers, and let the Cutler debate begin. I’ll start by saying my opinion of Jay is this, he is one hell of a QB for the Bears. He’s tough, he’s gritty, his team loves him, and let’s face it, he doesn’t give a shit what we think. Before Cutler there was uhhh…ummm…*chirp*….*chirp*….Yup, that’s right, a bunch of nobodies.

Out Coached and Out Played, Sky Swept in WNBA Finals

The Chicago sky were out coached and outplayed the entire series as they fell to the Phoenix Mercury 87-82, surrendering a WNBA Finals sweep.

Elena Delle Donne Finished with 23, Sylvia Fowles scored 20 and Allie Quigley finished with 19. This was the Chicago Sky’s first appearance in the WNBA Finals and hopefully will not be their last.

NFL? More like NFLOL

Well… today was QUITE the day of sports news.

Ray Rice was suspended for two games back in March for punching his then-fiance/now-wife Janay Palmer in an elevator at a casino in Atlantic City, NJ. There was surveilance footage of Rice dragging an unconscious Palmer out of an elevator. That footage was viewed by lawyers and NFL brass, as well as the general population thanks to TMZ. In regard to the non-sever punishment, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell stated that he “didn’t get it right”. Well no shit, Sherlock. Continue reading

Chicago Sky stunned in WNBA Finals opener.

The Chicago Sky were never in the game on Sunday as they opened the WNBA Finals against Phoenix. They were down 15 – 8 after the first and it was downhill from there. Despite contributions from Fowles and Quigley , Elena Delle Donne only had 2 points in 10 minutes of action and sat out the entire second half due to back pain. The Chicago Sky scored 28 in the 4th quarter and tried to make a run but it was too late the damage was done. They were not playing good basketball and could not get into a good rhythm anytime in the first half. This series could be over if Elena Dell Donne heal up and stay out on the court to help out her team. The Chicago Sky will play game 2 of the WNBA Finals on Tuesday at 8:00 CST on ESPN.

After an early stop from the defense, which looked solid in the first series, and a big play from Alshon Jeffery, Cutler hit Marty Bennett for a touchdown to give the Bears an early 7-0 lead.
