Jonathan Toews Does Ice Bucket Challenge While Wakeboarding

While I appreciate people finding new and interesting ways to dump buckets of ice water over their head, I would hope that Jonathan Toews would have been smart enough to TURN HIS DAMN PHONE HORIZONTALLY WHILE RECORDING VIDEO ON IT.

I mean, you’re a captain for Christ’s sake, Jonathan. You’re supposed to know better.

Here’s Scottie Pippen Dunking A Sub Sandwich

Screen Shot 2014-08-22 at 1.54.11 PM

Have you seen the new Nike commercial with James Harden and Charles Barkley? In it Barkley tries to convince Harden that the secret to being a great athlete is to have a short memory, and at the end Scottie Pippen agrees with Barkley by yelling “I’m the greatest Chicago Bull of all time!”

It’s funny.

VIDEO: Mike Magee’s Day Off

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 10.46.19 AM

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.

VIDEO: Doug McDermott Goes Off For 31 Points


Obviously anything that happens in the NBA Summer League will surely carry over to the regular season, so Bulls fans should expect rookie Doug McDermott to score at least 30 points per game this year. He’ll also shoot 56% from three all season too.

Tony Snell pouring in another 23 points as well means that the Bulls are winning the NBA title next year, you guys.

POTD: Italians Are Delicious

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 6.32.50 AM

This is the third time that Luis Suarez has bitten an opponent during a match. Now, if you’re unfamiliar with soccer or Luis Suarez, let me give you an American comparison.

Luis Suarez is really good. Like, one of the five best players in the world good. So just imagine that while in the middle of a 60-point game LeBron James just went and bit somebody on the court.

Three different times.

Of course, as baffled as I am by Suarez’s need to bite people (seriously, he does it so often that I had an entire conversation with Spencer Hall on Twitter about Suarez biting people three hours before yesterday’s match even began), the part of that match that really pissed me off was the bullshit red card given to Italy’s Claudio Marchisio with 30 minutes left in the match. That’s the reason Italy lost. It was definitely a yellow card, but to give somebody a red in that situation, in a match that important, well, hey, it could have been worse.

It could have been like Greece beating the Ivory Coast because of a penalty called on a guy tripping over himself.

Soccer refs: just as terrible as the refs in American sports.

Early Thoughts On The Ka’Deem Carey Pick


The Bears finally went to the offensive well in the fourth round, and I couldn’t be happier with the pick. In Thursday’s NFL Draft mailbag I was asked who I thought the first offensive player the Bears took would be, so what I did was I just named the offensive player I wanted the Bears to take.

And the Bears took that guy.

Early Thoughts On The Kyle Fuller Pick


Aaron Donald almost fell to the Bears at No. 14. I don’t know for sure that the Bears would have taken him, but I’d like to think they would. We’ll never know, because St. Louis took him at No. 13 and the Bears decided to go with cornerback Kyle Fuller out of Virginia Tech.

My initial response is one of ennui.
