Well, I said I wasn't going to do it, swore to myself it was never going to happen, ignored them for the entire first half of the season, pretended they didn't exist, and then, while I wasn't paying attention, I accidentally fell in love with them. I'm speaking of the Chicago Bulls and darn it, they are freaking lovable. I have no idea how this happened. Seriously. Wait, I know. Some guys at work were like "Hey, have you watched these guys play? They're really good. You should watch them.

Well, Bulls fans, we've made it past the All-Star break. You know what that means: We're halfway through the second season without Derrick Rose and without much hope of the playoffs. Last week's confirmation that Rose won't be back on the court this season made us wonder just what the team has been up to while we were distracted with Olympics, hockey and Olympic hockey. Here's a look at the Bulls' season so far. The standings Overall record: 27-25. With Thursday's win over Brooklyn, the Bulls improved to two games over .500 for the first time since Nov....

Oh, I've noticed them. I haven't mentioned them too much because, you know, everybody loves them. Plus, hey, we're still in that honeymoon phase, post-Stanley Cup. Doesn't seem like much can go wrong, except for this little skid they were on. This little four game skid until they won at Vancouver, the one where they weren't winning games in overtime like they used to, this one where goalie Antti Raanta doesn't inspire much confidence. Guys, I'll put it to you this way. There is no one else.

Two Chicago guys enter the Hall of Fame on the same day. Hell may have frozen over, and we know Chicago already has. Congratulations to Frank Thomas and Greg Maddux. I loved watching "The Big Hurt" hit. A great line drive hitter who could go deep. And Greg Maddux was a true master at pitching. Of course, with Maddux, he had to leave the Cubs to find true greatness. 1992. 20 wins. ERA a little over 2.00. You read that right. We thank you, Larry Himes, who was then the GM of the Cubs.

There's no arguing that the Blackhawks are the shining beacon of Chicago sports right now. Really, it's not even close. They have two Stanley Cups in four seasons and everything a franchise needs to be successful: Players: Duh. Toews. Kane. Sharp. Crawford. Hossa. Keith. The list goes on. No first names necessary. Management/coach: A smart trade here, a re-signing there - it's all come up aces. And Coach Q and his mustache take a backseat to no one. Intangibles: All those overtimes in the 2013 playoffs, all those wins.
