Time to blow out the candles again. Fire Jerry Angelo turns 7!

smashing-7th-anniversaryWhere has the time gone? If you can believe it, most of us have known each other for damn near a decade.

Thank you, everybody. I know I say that every year, but it never gets old. All of our readers are the reason why this place is up and running. If you were to ask me if I had any specific memories about this place, there would be countless ones. Yes, most of the events that have happened in sports have been on the negative side (I think that’s why this site existed in the first place). We’ve used this site as an outlet to let it be known that we are pissed off fans of our teams in Chicago sports.

I will brag for a second here, but I think calling out Sarah Spain five years ago and having her fight back by saying that I posted almost all false information made me laugh. Earlier this year, the whole Aiyana Cristal saga with 670 The Score’s Dan Bernstein brought a lot of eyes to this site.

But I do all of this for fun. In seven years, I never made a single dollar from this site. And even if I tried to make money, it probably wouldn’t have worked. Anyone can have a website, channel, whatever else. But, to know that I did this years ago tells me that I wasn’t doing this to try to be famous or make money. If it happened, so be it. But I truly come here to talk to you guys and girls because it lets me know that I am not the only person in the Chicago sports world that’s pissed off.

I would thank a lot of individuals, but I am afraid I will leave someone out. However, I do have to thank Genrebuster for helping out over the last few years. Thanks, buddy!

And thank you again, everybody.

Training Camp has started for the Bears.

And with that, is the first audio show for this website by yours truly. Feel free to give it a listen and put your thoughts on it, as well as what I said about the Bears in the thread. Unlike other websites out there, it’s only about 15 minutes long. I am not a fan of podcasts/audio shows that are long. Have at it.

Happy Monday, meatballs of the Chicago sports world.

All-Star break is upon us. If the season ended today….

…the Cubs would be in the wild-card playoff game.

I know – all too well – that there’s still a lot of baseball to be played. That said, I’m impressed with Joe Maddon so far and want to believe that the Cubs are moving in a positive direction. Your feedback welcomed.

The Chicago Cubs today named Joe Maddon the 54th manager in franchise history, Monday, November 3, 2014. Maddon was introduced at The Cubby Bear sports bar across the street from Wrigley Field in Chicago.   (Brian Cassella/Chicago Tribune)

WRASSLIN’ tonight.

Well, it’s finally here. Raw is at the Allstate Arena. Brock Lesnar is scheduled to be there and a rumor of Ric Flair showing up after the show goes off the air is out there as well. But I know one thing that WILL be there. And yes, it’s true.

Jimmy Butler must be brainwashed.

Butler-and-Thibs

So, this is how a player goes about after his former coach does everything in his power to shorten his career? I am surprised I didn’t hear about this last week when it happened, but Jimmy Butler decided to have dinner with ThomASS at Gibson’s Steakhouse downtown.

I know this shouldn’t really be a big deal. I mean, two people having dinner isn’t, in the grand scheme of things. But after all of the garbage that we have dealt with the past five years, why is Butler even associating himself with this hack? ThomASS tried to ruin his career by playing him so much, he led the league in minutes the last two years.

If I were Butler, I would have stayed as far away from this doofus as possible. And the Bulls were stupid enough to give him a max deal of five years and $95 million.

The Chicago Bulls (and Chicago Bears): One step forward. Two steps back.

Bulls take SEC Player of The Year Bobby Portis in the draft

June 26, 2015 by

usa-today-8282832.0

From what I heard on The Score last night, the Bulls, supposedly, have a steal in the draft. He’s only been in college for two years, but it appears to management that he is ready.

I would like to be optimistic about Fred Hoiberg when it comes to using the bench. Portis is going to have to play. I am not expecting him to start but giving the team at least, 20-25 minutes a game is ideal. He’s a power forward and one would think that he would take the place of Joakim Noah, who is very bad at the game of basketball. Let’s pray Portis doesn’t rebound the ball and take it up the court like he is a point guard, only to have it stolen from behind.

There is a possibility he could play center, too. With Noah being so bad at basketball and the uncertainty of Gasol’s health, it’s very much in the realm of possibility. No other team is dumb enough to trade for Joakim Noah (even though he has an expiring contract). I think the Bulls will still have Cameron Bairstow, so that’s an option, too. Tony Snell can play forward, if needed. All of these guys are going to have to play and play well. Some of the idiot fans may have responded to that post with “those guys suck”. Seeing who the last coach of this team was, I think it’s very difficult for someone to get better at basketball when they are always on the bench.

Besides, I highly doubt the Bulls are going to make a run at trading for DeMarcus Cousins or signing Kevin Love. The Bulls will have to play with the cards their dealt. It’s time to find out if the kids can play.
