The Mailbag: Sox Prospects Ain’t Gettin No Respect!

carlosrodon

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.

New Illinois Uniforms

Screen Shot 2014-04-16 at 10.37.32 AM

Illinois has been hyping up its new uniform reveal for over a month now, and tonight is the night the school is finally going to show off its new look. Unfortunately for Illinois, the internet exists, and the internet has a way of spoiling the surprise.

On Tuesday night that surprise was spoiled, as pictures of the new uniforms leaked online. At least, we can only assume these are the uniforms for now, as Illinois hasn’t made them official yet. I tweeted photos of them last night, but in case you weren’t around, don’t worry. They’re all after the jump.

Illinois Is Headed In The Right Direction

When it comes to Illinois, however, that’s not really the case.

The Morning Constitutional: So We’re Still Talking About A Mascot, Huh?

Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 9.42.31 AM

I love this city, but sometimes Chicago acts like the biggest collection of hayseeds ever assembled. Nobody feels slighted for no real reason like a Chicagoan.

When a comedian says he doesn’t like our pizza on his show, the local news does a story about it. Chicagoans respond to small, insignificant things like this on a regular basis. It’s so strange to me because the one thing the national media says about Chicago that nobody seems to fight, in spite of the fact it’s completely false, is that this city is a war zone. But I’m not going to get into that since there’s something so much more important going on.

That damned Cubs mascot.
