Chicago Bears: Three positive takeaways in a season to forget

It’s finally over, Bears fans.

No more watching a passionless, unmotivated football team every week. Your energy can now be used watching the Bulls and Blackhawks – teams that are among the best in their respective leagues.

I’ve Never Been More Embarrassed to be a Chicago Bears Fan

Words escaped me as I watched the Chicago Bears look like a happy but blind birthday kid aimlessly swinging at an pinata against the rival Green Bay Packers. I didn’t expect the Bears to win at Lambeau, but I did expect some effort or, at the very least, not an embarrassing performance.

Pat Foley will finally be inducted into Hockey Hall of Fame

Announcers are like soundtracks to movies. If they are great, they become more than just background noise – they become an integral part of the larger whole. Pat Foley, longtime announcer for the Chicago Blackhawks, is they kind of announcer that adds a whole other level the game with his play-by-play and personality.

Jeff Samardzija’s winless streak broke records but it’s finally over

Monday, May 26th, 2014. The date will live in Chicago Cubs history as the day the team didn’t suck enough to blow a 8-4 lead against the San Francisco Giants, and gave starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija his first victory in 16 starts.

Why you shouldn’t count the Chicago Blackhawks out just yet

Things are bad if you’re the Chicago Blackhawks.

After taking an early 1-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals, the ‘Hawks now find themselves down 3-1 and have been soundly beaten in every important aspect of the game. The Los Angeles Kings have outplayed the ‘Hawks defensively, in the face-off circle, and on the power play.

Why Chicago Bears would be idiots to not re-sign Jay Cutler

It was another brutal and disappointing season for the Chicago Bears. For the second year in a row the team has choked when given the opportunity to make the playoffs by winning one of its last two games.

What everyone wants to know now is whether or not free agent quarterback Jay Cutler will be a Bear next season.

A Chicago Bears win and good friends made freezing in Cleveland fun

It was 4:30 a.m. when my alarm clock went off Sunday morning. I was tired from not being able to sleep the night before, but I got up and put three or four layers of warm clothes on. I was going to need it. Weather in Cleveland, Ohio was going to be 30 degrees with snow and wind.

Here are some things Bears fans can be positive about despite such a disappointing season.

Injuries ruin another Chicago Bears season

Week 7 injuries have ruined a lot of teams’ seasons and maybe even some players’ careers. The Chicago Bears did not escape.

Chicago Bears offense poised for a great season

Two weeks into the NFL season, and the Chicago Bears are owning the title of “Comeback Kings,” winning both of their games on late fourth quarter drives. The Bears could easily be 0-2 now, but looking at it that way would turn a blind eye to how well the Bears have played in the first two weeks.

Chicago Blackhawks tickets are getting hard to come by

Gone are the days where Chicago Blackhawks fans can easily buy tickets to home games. After making the playoffs five out of the past six years and winning the Stanley Cup twice in four years, being shut out of tickets is to be expected for the normal buyer.

Chicago Bears have no excuse for a bad season in 2013

This past offseason was an eventful one for the Bears. There is a new head coach and other major personal changes that will have the Bears looking like a new team. The main objective – winning – remains the same, though, and the Bears must do exactly that this season or I’m going to be a very angry fan.

Chicago Blackhawks offseason fairs much better in 2013 than 2010

Straight off of a Stanley Cup victory, it was easy to realize who the Chicago Blackhawks should re-sign and who they should let go, and a few weeks into the offseason and five key re-signings, two trades, and two major releases later, the team’s management has perfectly executed what needed to be done.

Scenes from the Chicago Blackhawks 2013 Stanley Cup victory parade

In 2010, an estimated 2 million Chicago Blackhawks fans from all over the Chicagoland area came to celebrate a Stanley Cup victory with the players and fellow fans. The 2012 parade was even bigger. Chicago police estimated more than two million people attended the 2013 parade on Friday. I went to the 2010 parade and had an […]

Corey Crawford is the Chicago Blackhawks’ 2013 breakout player of the year

Corey Crawford has spent a long time in the Chicago Blackhawks organization, and after a Stanley Cup victory in 2013, the long wait paid off for the 28-year-old goaltender.
