The [Monday] Papers

Re-upping from Friday:

-

Rogers, Over
The Google Doodle celebrates Will Rogers' 140th birthday today. What a nice gesture for the Bears' assistant athletic director!

*

The Will Rogers Theater, at 5641 West Belmont Avenue, opened in 1936 and was demolished in 1987.

*

Cheap flights from Will Rogers to Chicago.

*

Will Rogers managed urban projects for a Chicago-based real estate development company.

*

"FOR THE RECORD: The 1938 quote attributed to Will Rogers is in fact a paraphrase of a quote by H.L. Mencken in the Chicago Tribune: 'No one in this world, so far as I know - and I have searched the records for years, and employed agents to help me - has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people.' Will Rogers died in 1935."

-

New on the Beachwood . . .

Call 911, 'cause the Beachwood Sports Desk is on fire.

SportsMonday: The Bears Tie That Should Still Bind
We were promised by local sports media that Ryan Pace's future would absolutely be tethered to that of his beloved young quarterback. If Mitch didn't make it, Pace wouldn't either. Now they seem to be untethering.

*

Tom Chambers positively on it for Breeders' Cup weekend.

TrackNotes: Somebody Is Lying Here
The philosophy of It Is What It Is claws its tentacles into skulduggery, the fix, corruption and shame in racing as ethically situational decisions are made in its behalf.

+

TrackNotes: The Specter Of Death
The impossible quest for virtue in the face of murderous greed. Also, how the delivery guy got trapped inside my parking gate and a bunch of geeks got results from AT&T.

*

Roger Wallenstein with a gem.

The World Series Then & Now
Fans in the cities where the Series is played are as enthusiastic and feverish as ever, but the emotion tends to stall at the city limits.

*

Jim "Coach" Coffman, dealing last Friday.

The Beachwood Radio Sports Hour #276: Bears On The Spot
The spot-on Bears. Plus: Zooless Cubs Clubhouse Is Broken; They're Bad, They're Nationalwide; Who's Next, Joe, Chris Bosio?; Castellanos vs. Merrifield; Guarded Bulls Optimism Now Unguarded Pessimism; Seabrook's Ghost; Rehire Lovie Smith Again!; Too Much Courage For Red Stars; and CPS Sports Struck.

-

The Beachwood Music Desk is also on a nice run.

Nickelback's Record Label Abuses Copyright To Silence Political Speech
It's Don Henley and "Hotel California" all over again.

*

Re-Upping: Bob Dylan Back In Chicago
That headline works on two levels; best show here in decades.

*

Re-Upping: Incomplete History Of Hip-Hop
Three more Fridays to go.

*

Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground
Blind Willie Johnson (literally) in space.

*
