Open thread.


So after looking at the standings, there are eight teams fighting for two wild card spots. The Bears are one of them. With these many teams in the race, it’s going to be much more difficult for the Bears to get in this way. The best way, of course is to win the division but now, the Bears must have a better record than the Lions rather than be tied and get into tie-breaker scenarios. We as fans can’t count the Packers out either but they have quite a few injuries as well.

    The website I have been using to get quality knock off jerseys was shut down….
    “This domain was allegedly being used to offer for sale products bearing counterfeit versions of Plaintiffs’ trademarks. Control of this domain has been transferred to Plaintiffs, pursuant to a court order.”

    Anybody know any ones you trust with good stuff?

    Haha. I don’t know any sites.

    I see so many counterfeit Blackhawks jerseys when I go to games. The logos are much thinner and the Indian head is off-colored. The numbers and name on the back usually are too think or too thick. Sometimes, you will see a name on a jersey being slanted and not put on straight or even in the right spot. It doesn’t bother me really but it’s funny to see at times.

    When it comes to NFL jerseys, they look much more authentic. I saw a documentary on counterfeit jerseys in the NFL before the Super Bowl last year. Some people buy the same jersey twice before getting one that looks exactly like the authentic one. They usually cost about $50 but an authentic one will run you about $250 so I can see why they keep trying.

    By the way CS, I bought a Bulls jersey with my name and number on the back four years ago. Now, I still have it and only had to wash it once (mustard dropped on it at a game in 2010). I bought it from the NBA store but these guys are terrible too. The lettering on the back is falling off already. I wore it last year to the game in Toronto and I think that’s about it. Horrible waste of cash.

    I have been collecting jerseys of all sports for about 20 years now. My favorites are an authentic and signed Walter Peyton, authentic and signed Ryne Sandberg hall of fame jersey, and a authentic and signed Rickey Henderson A’s jersey. I usually pay for the real deal if its a player or team I like but since I collect them I dont want to pay top dollar for some of the jerseys I have..

    I did score a Blackhawks Winter Classic sweater off the closed website for $65 that was IDENTICAL to my buddys that he paid $250 for. I purchased 6 jerseys from that site and the basketball ones were a little lighter material but the hockey and football were spot on, Ill be on the look out for a new one just hoping to find something “trusted”

    I have an old LT North Carolina football jersey the numbers peeled off the back, I took it to a seamstress and she made it look like new for $20

    Bulls lose to the Nuggets 97-87. Let’s take a look at some stats (cue Yeti), shall we?

    Bulls: Six missed free throws, 18 turnovers and 3/10 on three point shooting. Only 38% on field goals. Oh, and to put salt into the wound, Taj Gibson acts like himself, which is being a dumbass by getting not one, but two technical fouls. The Bulls were down nine I believe when they got the ball back in the last two minutes and Gibson still thought it would be a good idea to say something to the refs.

    Here we go again guys. There are still 72 games of this nightmare.

    BTW, about the Bears…they will be cutting it fine for making the playoffs. This defense it too old and too hurt, and there’s something about the FUCKING SECOND QUARTER of games this year where the Bears shit the bed, the spend the rest of the game trying to dig out of that hole.

  7. Fro Dog Says:

    The Bulls blew a 21-point lead to lose to the Jail Blazers on Friday night. And it looks like Derrick Rose tore his other ACL too. I am not going to blame ThomASS for this injury but I will blame him for letting his players blow a 21-point lead. No excuses. No NBA team should fuck up a lead like that and it doesn’t matter who it is.

    It’s time to clean to house. This isn’t working anymore.

  8. Cubs Suck Says:

    I’m sure he has had the MRI by now….. still waiting…. WTF!!!

  9. Cubs Suck Says:

    Still nothing… If he tore it the fat lady has sung and its over. If he didnt tear it we have our new shooting guard, time to bring in a point that can last a season

  10. Fro Dog Says:

    It’s taking a while. This doesn’t look good at all.

    (Sound of the toilet flushing)

  11. Cubs Suck Says:

    Marc Gasol already got his MRI back…. Something is up, cant wait for this line of bullshit

  12. Cubs Suck Says:

    MRI confirmed a medial meniscus tear, here we go…..

  13. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Same thing that Russell Westbrook suffered, right?

  14. Cubs Suck Says:

    Not exactly, Westbrook tore the lateral meniscus. Im no doctor but if all goes well he should be able to practice in 2 weeks and %100 in 8 weeks, but you know how that goes

  15. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Sounds like he has two options (from Yahoo! Sports A.Woj)

    If Rose decides to reattach the meniscus – usually the route taken by young players – he’s expected to miss the rest of the regular season. To clip off the meniscus is a riskier long-term issue, but could have Rose back in one to two months.
