For as much as we fans threaten to hold grudges in sports, our capacity for forgiveness is higher than we might realize. The NBA's been boarded up for four months, and we might say we're fed up with the constant bickering and that there's no way we'd embrace the league again. But really, the right conditions are all it takes for many of us to plug back in. Sure, it will take longer if you're, say, a Cleveland Cavaliers fan. MUCH longer. Whereas a team like the Bulls will win back fans more easily because they're a title contender and, well, Derrick Rose's talent is THAT mesmerizing.

Martellus Bennett took a page out of Shaquille O'Neal's playbook. "I'm a big fan of Shaq growing up, and Shaq always had new nicknames so that's why I have a lot of nicknames," Bennett said. Even Bennett's two dogs have interesting names: Sebastian Janikowski after the Oakland kicker, and Zero after a character in "The Nightmare before Christmas. " But his teammates said they either haven't heard of his self-proclaimed nicknames or don't call him any of those. To them, he is simply Martellus.

So THAT'S what it looks like when Jay Cutler smiles. In fact, Monday's Bears win illustrated not just what his smiles look like but where they come from. For instance, when the offensive line gives Cutler time to throw, he smiles. And when best buddy Brandon Marshall gives him a jump ball target as large as Shaq in the post, he smiles. And when he flips a pass off his back foot to a sprinting Devin Hester for a touchdown, yes, the cantankerous quarterback is all smiles. Speaking of that beautiful touchdown, Hester smiles when he watches the replay and sees that he did indeed have both hands beneath the...

The pain is still fresh for Bulls fans and players. When the Bulls were eliminated in the Eastern Conference finals at the hands of the Miami Heat in May, Chicago's 13-year NBA championship drought was prolonged. The Bulls fielded the best team they've had since the days of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, and it seemed as if that title was well within the Windy City's grasp. But Miami changed all that. The script is playing out much the same way this season. The Bulls and Heat again are two of the best teams in the...

The Bulls are headed to their fifth consecutive postseason - without Derrick Rose, no less - and it's their eighth appearance in the past nine years. Playoff time has always been exciting in Chicago and this year should be no different. So RedEye asked current Bulls and veteran reporters about their favorite NBA postseason memories, either watching as a kid or playing in the NBA. And as you would expect, Michael Jordan's name came up. A lot. Kirk Hinrich My favorite playoff memory, probably, is Michael Jordan in the finals in Utah.

Remember on "The Simpsons" when Helen Lovejoy would yell, "Will someone please think of the children?" Apparently the folks over at Facebook were listening. The Wall Street Journal reported this week that the social networking giant is developing a way for children under 13 years old to use the service that won't open them up to being skeezed on by pervs. I'm pretty annoyed by this development, but not for the reasons you think. See, it's kind of crappy that all my current Facebook friends weren't around to witness my entire development.

The setup: You debate this at every party. Now it's time to settle it once and for all. BEER PONG Girls prefer flip cup, right? Wrong. What is so appealing about warm beer dribbling down your chin or inducing a nasty case of the hiccups when you try to inhale overly carbonated keg swill in less than 4 seconds? Drinking games aren't meant to be classy, but beer pong at least allows you to consume your beer at a human pace. Unlike flip cup, it allows for actual (albeit drunken)

Welcome to spring! It'll still be cold for two more months , but that doesn't mean we can't dream about putting our ski masks away and of summer hookups to come. With a new season comes a new quick 'n' dirty column , advice for the short of attention but long of time-wastiness. My really good friend is in a sticky situation. He and his girl have been dating for about four months, and they're perfect for each other, but she's moving to Africa to go into the Peace Corp for two years!

It turns out that basketball isn't the only sport that gets Stacey King riled up. The Bulls TV broadcaster is a huge mixed martial arts fan, and he traded a few punches - figuratively, that is - with RedEye ahead of UFC 148 (9 p.m. Saturday, pay-per-view). Oh, and he still can't stand those Bad Boy Detroit Pistons.   What first interested you about MMA? I have been a big fan since going back to UFC 1. The format that was you had to fight four people in a night with no weight classes is what drew me to the sport.
