The Mailbag: Let’s Talk Pizza

Welcome to The Chicago Homer’s Mailbag. It runs once a week unless it doesn’t, and in it I answer questions from readers via Twitter or email. The questions can be about any damn thing you please, and there likely isn’t a question I won’t answer. There may be questions I can’t answer, but I’ll try.

If you’d like to submit a question for the next edition of the mailbag it’s pretty simple. Either ask the question on Twitter using the #AskTCH hashtag — as long as you use the hashtag I will see it — or send an email to TCHMailbag@gmail.com.

Today is the MLB trade deadline, and I haven’t written an actual post here all week, so of course the the rumor that I’m writing about here involves the Chicago Fire. But it’s somewhat of a big rumor, though! Don’t run away so fast!

Mike Magee and the Chicago Fire do their own version of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and the video is actually pretty good, with some guest stars as well. The best one being Hope Solo, who does an excellent job of being angry, which we all know she’s pretty good at.

There’s a thing you learn when you watch the Chicago Fire enough. You learn that, no matter how good things are going, something bad is always going to happen. So I knew that the Fire were going to give up a tying goal in Saturday’s match against New England, because they aren’t allowed to win matches.

Draws or losses, that’s how they roll.

So when the Fire were called for a foul with five minutes to play and New England got a penalty kick, I didn’t even bat an eye. I knew it was coming.

What I didn’t know was coming was this.

Maybe It’s Time To Give The Chicago Fire A Chance

The World Cup came to an end for the United States Tuesday when it lost to Belgium in extra time 2-1. It sucked, even if it wasn’t completely unexpected. For many fans who have been watching soccer the last three weeks the end of the USMNT’s run in the World Cup means the end of watching soccer for four years.

And that’s fine. I used to be the exact same way.
