The [Friday] Papers

1. "What else do you need to see from Derrick Rose to believe that if nothing else, his name should be the first one out of your mouth when we start the MVP conversation?" Sekou Smith writes for


"[W]hile it took a little time for the outsiders to catch on, there's little time or reason for an argument," Jon Greenberg writes for

2. "Midwest Gaming is hosting its first job information fair today for their new casino in Des Plaines [today]," Fox Chicago News reports.


"Earn a winning future," the casino company says. "We're hiring now for every position, from managerial to wait staff to food service. If you're enthusiastic, hard-working and interested in working on one of the newest, most exciting employment opportunities in Des Plaines, we want to talk to you now."

3. Sex toy demo works.

4. "When Rebecca Black's "Friday" became a YouTube sensation overnight, it was a given what would follow - "Sunday" of course," the Christian Post reports.

"Creating their own rendition of the 'wannabe weekend-party anthem,' as Yahoo's Lyndsey Parker put it in her music blog, and giving it a holy twist, the Creative Arts Staff at [Chicagoland's] Community Christian Church quickly got to work . . .

"While Rebecca Black ponders things like which seat to take in her friend's car, Sadie B. has more, or rather equally, important things to think about like . . . front pew or back?"

5. Good news for Rahm Emanuel.

6. "Lee Thomsen, the owner of The Winning Ticket bar on Main Street, took a creative approach in encouraging citizen action this week by offering drink specials to anyone who voted at Thursday's town meeting," the Winsted Journal in Connecticut reports.

"This is the Chicago way of getting people to a meeting," Thomsen said.

7. "Cubs fans are notorious for outnumbering, out-cheering and even (gasp) out-drinking their Brewers counterparts when the two teams meet here in Milwaukee," Andrew Wagner writes for

"The closest place to a 'Cubs Haven' our investigation found was, surprisingly, Comet Cafe, 1947 N. Farwell Ave., where co-owners Adam and Val Lucks are big-time and die hard Cubs fans.

"The siblings don't spend as much time on-site anymore, general manager Andy Menchal explains, but their North Side loyalty has a lot to do with Comet's Old Style sales."

8. Duh.

9. Bambi McMillion.

10. The Week in Chicago Rock.

11. The Week in WTF.
