It’s a sign. An earthquake starts two miles away from Fire Jerry Angelo headquarters in Dekalb. The man upstairs does not want me to write any more articles. The outsiders were right. This site is not only the worse site on the internet but it also has the worst writer EVER. Or maybe our friends the Mayans or even Nostradumbass predicted this earthquake and The History Fictional Channel will produce another documentary on how this is a sign of bad things to come.
For about the fifth time this year, the Blackhawks, Bulls and Illini all played on the same day and nearly at the same time. As usual on these days, I find myself flipping between all three games. It’s not too bad because if one team is getting their ass kicked, I always have a second or third game to watch.
1. Good game by the Blackhawks to pull it out and finally beat the Stars this season. But the defense has been a bit shitty lately and it lead to two of the three goals given up by Antti Niemi. Although I am not in favor of the Olympic break, this could give some of these players a bit of a rest. For those obsessed with stats (Cue Irish Yeti), Antti Niemi is leading the NHL in goals against average.
2. This Chicago Bulls team is hard to figure out. They can play so well against some of the best teams in the NBA then take a crap against the bad teams like the Pacers. Last night was another one of those nights. If it wasn’t for Indiana basically missing every shot in the 4th quarter, the Bulls don’t win that game. The fact that they only won by eight points shows that they should stop playing to their opponents level of competition. If they can do that, they are capable of beating any team on any given night.
3. My beloved Fighting Illini pulled yet another win out of their asses against the Badgers. They barely beat Michigan State despite the Spartans not having their best player in the game so I didn’t get too excited. Now all of a sudden, they are tied for first place in the Big Ten. I always thought Bruce Weber was a good coach and he gets the most of the players he has. This job he is doing is shocking to many including myself. Next year when the new class comes in is rated the #7 recruiting class in the nation according to ESPN. Things are finally looking up for Illinois.
