Could Chicago ever host the Super Bowl? While all eyes will be on New York/New Jersey this Sunday for the first open-air, cold weather Super Bowl, Chicagoans have been debating for years whether the Big Game could come to the Windy City. Short answer: It's complicated. Bears chairman George McCaskey, who is on the NFL's Super Bowl committee, talked to the Chicago Tribune last March about whether the city could host. "It will depend on what happens in New York/New Jersey in 2014.

Three weeks into the NFL season and the "replacement refs" aren't getting any better at their jobs. On Sunday the 49ers were awarded a fourth timeout, the Lions were flagged for the rare 27-yard personal foul, and Ravens fans banded together to execute the greatest "B.S. " chant in recorded history. And need I mention Monday night's catastrophe? The most insane part of this lockout is the relatively piddling amount of money that separates the NFL and the refs. The sides are about $2 million per year apart, which works out to a mere $60,000 per NFL franchise.

*** (out of four) At some point your mom or dad probably said, “It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt.” Ralphie from “A Christmas Story” knows what I'm talking about. Many people participating in activities without play guns know what that's about, too. In the sobering documentary “Head Games,” Chicago-based director Steve James' (“Hoop Dreams”) converts former Harvard defensive tackle Chris Nowinski's book into a study of increasing evidence about the long-term effects of sports-related brain...

Get ready for unwatchable. Bears backup quarterback Jason Campbell (sit this one out, Jay) runs the offense, against a wobbly Alex Smith, also recovering from a concussion. It's on a Monday night, in San Francisco. You know how well the Bears play in San Francisco. Oh, you don't? Here are some scores for you (all losses): 49-7 (2003), 44-15 (playoffs, 1994), 52-14 (1991), 41-0 (1987). This is a loss, and it's going to be so unbearable that I am formally requesting of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell that this game not be televised.

I am the most optimistic Chicago sports fan you'll ever read. I still hold hope that the Theocracy will break a 105-year Cubs drought, I believe Derrick Rose will lead the Bulls past Miami this spring, and I don't see any reason why the Blackhawks won't play in the Stanley Cup Final again this season. But trust me, the Bears' season is over. Sure, they'll play the games. I mean, they have to. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell would be ticked off if they went all Grambling on him. And the Bears will win a few, I'm sure.

Trash talking has begun and every girlfriend is preparing her "why don't you love me as much as you love Matthew Berry?" speech. God bless fantasy football season. I applaud all the ladies who play! But unfortunately, women account for only about 20 percent of fantasy football players. Blame it on lack of interest, or football knowledge or timing that directly competes with brunch hours. Yet none of these things can keep you from playing the game for the real pros: Fantasy Husband!
