The hottest rivalry since "Rowdy" Roddy Piper versus "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka is heating up! The Comix Warriors , fantasy football team of  Chicago's King of Geeks (as christened by Laurence Holmes of NBC5 and 670 The Score) was more devastating than the Death Star's prime weapon. Meanwhile, Chicago's Top White Sox fan - the mysterious Soxman - found his team to be as ineffective as a snow speeder's blasters against AT-AT armor. What? Too many Star Wars references?

3.5 out of 4 2 Chainz now has two albums, with the release of his sophomore “B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time,” the sequel and acronym for “Based on a True Story,” last year's debut. The “Me Time” addendum is crucial, though, because based on how much fun “B . O . A . T . S . II” is, no one is doing “me time” better than 2 Chainz right now. 2 Chainz's appeal lies solely in him being 2 Chainz, a punchline Jedi with the relentless energy to pull it off. Being that it's “me time,” everything is gaudy - that is, everything is appropriately...

Disney and Lucasfilm have introduced a hero who embodies the "rebel" part of "Star Wars Rebels. " Kanan, who is voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr., isn't the traditional Jedi knight fans have come to expect in the "Star Wars" universe. A survivor of the Emperor's Jedi purge, Kanan hides his lightsaber for fear of revealing his true identity. He uses a blaster instead. "I like to call Kanan 'the cowboy Jedi,'" says executive producer Dave Filoni. "He's a gunslinger that needs to put the gun away and pick up the sword again, and fight for noble causes and selfless causes.

WEEK 5 of the Survivor Fantasy Football League saw fortunes continue to change; Week 4 had Soxman - Chicago's #1 White Sox fan - tumble in the standings after his high-powered lineup fizzled out. Meanwhile, Chicago's King of Geeks - yours truly - rallied into a tie for the division lead.  Now, as bitter rivals go into Week 6, Soxman bemoans his fantasy team choking worse than his beloved Sox did in 2012. And I can just sit back and chuckle: Soxman: You are familiar with the Chinese Zodiac right?
