Both teams and their fans suffering, but in very different ways. Including: There Is No There There; So, A Chiefs-Saints Super Bowl!; Manny Mania; Wrong Way Ricketts Wrecking Ball; Boiberg; and Bleak Blackhawks.
1:35: Bears Hangover.
* Coffman: Parched.
For all the guys who have tweeted "Karem Hunt deserves a second chance." I would love to know why. He wasn't investigated by NFL, and they don't require players to do counseling anyway.— Julie DiCaro (@JulieDiCaro) January 14, 2019
So what work has Kareem Hunt done, SPECIFICALLY, that warrants him getting a second chance?
By the way, the job Ballard has done is very impressive, but Ryan Pace had the same success with his coaching hire, similar immediate draft pick impact and, oh yeah, he pulled off the biggest/most impactful NFL trade of the year. Voters forget about the Khalil Mack trade?— Adam Hoge (@AdamHoge) January 17, 2019
25:19 So, A Chiefs-Saints Super Bowl!
* Take the chalk.
30:32: There Is No There There.
* Oh, Oakland.
* The Fightin' 47th.
* Vince Vaughn, Olin Kreutz & Michael Jordan.
* The Oakland White Sox.
40:45: Manny Mania.
Manny Machado's agent calls the reports of a seven-year, $175 million offer from the White Sox "inaccurate." https://t.co/yuCj3Qtm5j— SI MLB (@si_mlb) January 16, 2019
* Wallenstein: "[T]here appear to be some simple facts - aside from the millions of dollars - that point to Machado coming to the South Side. Stated another way, if the Sox don't land Machado, they just don't have the glamour and pizzazz to attract a player of his caliber."
* Get Pollock!
53:43: Wrong Way Ricketts Wrecking Ball.
Regarding budget for baseball operations, Tom Ricketts says #Cubs have $20 million to $30 million in taxes other teams don't have and must cover every stadium expense, which many teams don't do.— 670 The Score (@670TheScore) January 17, 2019
Ricketts: We don't make that much money.— jon greenberg (@jon_greenberg) January 17, 2019
Me: Wow, four lawn seats to a spring training game costs $200.
#Cubs owner Tom Ricketts acknowledges free-agent signing of Yu Darvish (and to a lesser extent Tyler Chatwood) is limiting what the team can do this offseason. Cubs were aware this would be a lower-profile offseason for them, Ricketts says.— 670 The Score (@670TheScore) January 17, 2019
Bulls under Fred Hoiberg: 5-19 with average margin of defeat of 13.4 points.— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) January 18, 2019
Bulls under Jim Boylen: 5-16 with average margin of defeat of 18.6 points.
1:08:11: Bleak Blackhawks.
