But a Sports World official said Tuesday morning it cannot sell its Epstein jersey, priced at $184.95 on its website. The site indicates the jersey, originally priced at $199.95, is "out of stock.

"Hey, watch out, it's icy!"  That's probably how this video should have started. But since it didn't, we get a full six minutes of kids slipping on ice, mercilessly narrated by a father waiting to pick up his kids.  "He's going a little fast," the man confidently states. "If he turns here, he is going to drill it. "  Turns out the guy's pretty good at predicting which innocent adolescents eat it on the ice, and which ones are aware enough to avoid it. It's not exactly clear where the video was taken, considering more than half of the contiguous United States...

It's easy to forgive the NHL, or at least the Blackhawks, when the team is playing this well. Jonathan Toews and Co. tied a franchise record Saturday by winning their fifth straight game to start the season, and they were going for team history against hated Detroit on Sunday. Could they do it? RedEye tracked how hot the Hawks were during Sunday's game.   FIRST PERIOD 17:36: That didn't take long. Duncan Keith cruises toward the net on a power play and blasts it past Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard into the top left corner.

On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a video of Santas brawling in NYC.  ( WARNING: Language NSFW or for Santa.) In a video posted to YouTube on Saturday, six Santa-costume-clad individuals duke it out on a sidewalk after SantaCon, an annual bar crawl held in the city similar to Chicago's crawl of the same name.  As TBOXers braved the sloppiness in Chicago, these SantaCon revelers were apparently making a...

A cockroach-eating contest at Six Flags Great America is being reviewed following reports of a man collapsing after consuming roaches and worms in a Florida challenge. The Florida man reportedly died last week after consuming dozens of roaches and worms as part of a contest to win a python at a reptile store in Deerfield Beach, according to Reuters. In response, Six Flags Great America will be reviewing a contest scheduled for Friday while the amusement park chain reviews the competitions nationwide.

"SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden" ( 7 p.m. Nov. 4, Nat Geo; 2 stars ) does the impossible: It makes the clandestine and no doubt harrowing U.S. mission that killed Osama bin Laden kind of dull. Republicans have complained that the fictionalized tale could sway the outcome of Tuesday's elections toward President Barack Obama because it shows the operation in a positive light. I'll give credit to part of the argument: The film does show a lot of Obama. But there's no other way to show the mission; it was a success after all. ...

Part of Chicago's enthusiasm for craft beer comes from a "drink local" ethos. There's a special satisfaction to hoisting a pint brewed mere miles from where you're drinking, and this fall, Chicagoans will welcome some new hometown heroes to their taps. Settle in - preferably with a drink in hand - for the lowdown on six new Chicago-area craft breweries debuting in the city before the end of 2013. Penrose Brewing Company Geneva, Ill.

March Madness, the mass basketball hysteria that bubbles up each spring, is just around the corner. Beginning Tuesday with the First Four round, otherwise rational adults will be reduced to cheering and screaming crazies, capable of making choices only when options are presented in bracket form. (What's for dinner? Let's check the chicken-versus-salad bracket!) But while the tournament is full of upsets and surprises, most fans end up watching the games from the same boring couch year after year.
