The Weekend Desk Report

We regret to inform you the Weekend Desk tip line is experiencing technical difficulties. But we'll still cover the news that counts.

Market Update
Shares in uber-florist FTD were expected to skyrocket this week because, let's face it - it's gonna take a shitload of poppies to make up for this.

Golden Moments
Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, set to abdicate his throne next year, has warned his successor against bidding for the 2020 Summer Olympics. Daley's bold prediction that the event will be awarded to a country that has not hosted before was bolstered by news that construction for this year's Commonwealth Games in New Delhi may be finished by then.

Silver Lining
As Chicago inches closer to crowning a new king who is louder, ruder and shorter than the last, we can take solace in the fact we're more likely to get that Jeremy Piven ban we've all been hoping for now.

Bronze Ambition
Cubs television analyst Bob Brenly this week removed his name from the list of potential replacements for Lou Piniella. After all, how many beloved Cubs managers have their very own statues?

Spears, Steers and Fears
Finally this week, there appears to be a new face to one of the world's vilest and most enduring dictatorships. But, of course, we all know deep down Daddy's still pulling the strings.
