The [Friday] Papers

1. "There is only one determining factor in the sale of the Phoenix Coyotes to Chicago businessman Matthew Hulsizer - can the city of Glendale sell $116 million in bonds to finance the purchase of the team?" Gary Lawless writes for the Winnipeg Free Press.

Who is Matthew Hulsizer?

"Hulsizer grew up in New Jersey and calls himself a hockey fan, player, and coach. He actually played hockey at Division III Amherst College and is currently a registered USA Hockey coach in Winnetka, Illinois," Business Insider reports.

"Hulsizer is currently the co-founder and CEO of Peak6 Investment, a private money management firm. He previously worked as a director and risk manager for Swiss Bank, a global financial-services corporation and as a senior trader for O'Connor & Associate, a proprietary derivatives trading firm.

"O'Connor & Associates had a reputation as 'the biggest securities firm no one had ever heard of' and was notorious for extreme privacy. The Chicago Tribune reports that the firm was so secretive that it destroyed the boxes its computers arrived in so competitors wouldn't know what technology the firm was using."

2. "A nearly 34-foot-tall religious statue that has traveled around the Chicago area for years will find a permanent home in northwestern Indiana next month," AP reports.

That would be Carl Demma's Mighty Metal Madonna.

3. "Popular blogging platform WordPress was hit by a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack yesterday, downing thousands of blogs," TG Daily reports.

"The attack involved tens of millions of packets per second and lasted for about two hours, according to a statement on parent company Automattic's status page. Some users said the site had been running unusually slowly for as long as three days.

"The attack hit all three of the company's data centers in Chicago, San Antonio and Dallas. The company responded by switching blogs into read-only mode while it fought the problem."

4. Built in Chicago . . . but lured to Cincinnati.

5. "New Stem Cell Discovery Could Reverse Alzheimer's."

Yes, but can it cure Fedheimer's?

6. "The Professional Bull Riders Inc. will hold its first invitational in Chicago with top riders, including Dustin Elliott, Skeeter Kingsolver, Luke Snyder and Cody Nance, riding ornery bulls for what seems like the longest eight seconds on Earth," the Tribune reports.

7. "Chicago Officer Detained By Fellow Cops Wins False-Arrest Suit."

8. "The iconic Mr. Clean will be visiting Chicago's Union Station this weekend to offer free products to commuters," the Examiner reports. "All shoppers will receive a free product and have the opportunity to take a fun photo with Mr. Clean in an exotic destination to remember their visit."

9. It takes one to know one.

10. The Week in Chicago Rock.

11. The Week in WTF.
