Boxing is a shell of it's former self, and UFC can be hit-or-miss, depending on the card. (Did I mention former UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar is wrestling again?) This Sunday, the WWE (you may remember them as WWF)

Chicago is known for a lot of things--good food, great pizza, rough winters and inconsistent yet lovable sports teams--but as of Jan. 14, “antique shopping destination” may be added to that list. That's when a brand-new episode of "Market Warriors," the PBS show about antique treasure hunting, will premiere, featuring the Randolph Street Market. Sally Schwartz, owner of the Randolph Street Market, has been a big fan of the show for a while.  “I lobbied hard for them to come to Chicago,” she said.

Yeezus, we have a leak. Along with the (conveniently timed?) illegal availability of Kanye West's album “Yeezus” Friday, the Chicago-raised rapper announced a round of new “projections” slated for locations across the country Saturday. Previously, West had projected video on buildings around the world for his release of “New Slaves,” including Wrigley Field, a Belgian castle and an empty Pennsylvania prison.
