The [Monday] Papers

1. Wow, it's getting crowded in here.

2. Starlin Castro Still Standing At Wrigley Eating Sunflower Seeds.

3. Rahm's First 100 Days.

4. "There will be no bid from the United States for the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics it has been officially confirmed after the seven cities which had expressed an interest in putting themselves forward were told over the weekend to forget it," Inside The Games reports.

"The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) contacted Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City and Tulsa to tell them that they had decided if they would miss this campaign following unsuccessful bids for the 2012 and 2016 Games."

Chicago? According to other reports, Chicago had expressed interest. I'm not so sure.

"Ever since Chicago were humiliatingly eliminated in 2009 in the first round of voting for the 2016 Olympics and Paralympics, which were awarded to Rio de Janeiro, the USOC have made it clear that they will only bid when they have repaired its international relations which have been damaged by a revenue-sharing row with the International Olympic Committee (IOC)."

5. "LeAnn Rimes used Twitter to express her anger over a stranger who told her she needed to eat," ABC News reports. "The country music singer was out having dinner with her husband, Eddie Cibrian, and their sons in Chicago on Aug. 21, 2011, when a stranger reportedly approached the table and told her to eat more."

I was only trying to help. I mean, look at her!

6. "The mouse which grounded a flight from Stockholm, Sweden to Chicago in the US has still not been found," Digital Spy reports.

7. "Officials from two cities in the USA have warned Thames Water bosses not to bank on their multi-billion pound 'super-sewer' to clean up the Thames," London 24 reports.

"Experts from Milwaukee and Chicago say that similar deep tunnel schemes in their cities ran over time and over budget, and have failed to stop all sewage from overflowing into nearby rivers."

8. 70th and Western.

9. Starlin's Statue. In The Cub Factor.

10. The Weekend in Chicago Rock.

11. Brought To You By The DH. In The White Sox Report.
