Curses! Cubs fans looking to wear a Theo Epstein jersey might be out of luck. Wrigleyville retailer Sports World, at 3555 N. Clark St., created a Theo Epstein jersey with the number 12 to denote 2012, the Cubs' first season under the guidance of their new president of baseball operations. 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.

Odds are 49ers defensive back Chris Culliver has shared a locker room with a homosexual, even if they have been closeted. At Super Bowl media day Tuesday, he made it clear that he'd rather those teammates keep their feelings to themselves. "I don't do the gay guys man," Culliver reportedly told comedian turned shock jock Artie Lange on his radio show. "I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Can't be with that sweet stuff.

Let's get something out of the way real quick - sports, in the grand scheme of things, do not matter. They're a welcome diversion from life's trials and tribulations, sure. But while you might think your life would change forever if the Cubs were to win the World Series tomorrow, it wouldn't. You wouldn't suddenly be better-looking, better at your job or have fewer bills to pay. You'd simply be happy for a couple of days. Which brings us to the topic du jour of the sports world: Ozzie Guillen, a prominent figure in the world of sports (which - again - don't matter)

Dig deep enough in anyone's closet and you'll find a couple skeletons. None likely as severe as the one that came tumbling out of Brandon Marshall's early Wednesday morning, when news began circulating that he was arrested and accused of punching a woman in the face in a Chelsea nightclub over the weekend, just before the Bears gave up two third round draft picks to bring him to town. Granted, Marshall's skeletons make any of our own past transgressions seem downright trite in comparison.

The sports world might be on the verge of some closure regarding Lance Armstrong. The Associated Press and USA Today both reported Monday that the disgraced cyclist admitted to doping throughout his career in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. The interview is scheduled to air Thursday on Winfrey's OWN network. After years of denying that he cheated while winning seven Tour de France titles, Armstrong's admission might be a shock to the system. Of course, he's not the first person to shatter a squeaky-clean image.

So much for being bored without football. From hockey to hoops to NASCAR, the sports world was chock-full of firsts Sunday. We rate how much fuss should be made over each.   Hawk and roll With every win or (non-regulation loss), the Blackhawks push their team-best run to start the season to new heights. They held off Los Angeles 3-2 on Sunday at the United Center thanks to goals by Brent Seabrook, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp and 25 saves from Ray Emery. At 12-0-3, the Hawks are just one game with a point away from tying the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks for the best run to...

As a ball boy for the Bulls from 1994-1997, Jason Franklin has stories. Not everyone can claim Scottie Pippen drove you in his Ferrari to your first date.   After Franklin, who grew up in Deerfield but now lives in L.A., had that introduction to the sports world, it's no surprise he never wanted to move too far away from it. Once he realized would never play for Bulls, he figured he should do something merging his love of sports and design. In 2006, Franklin started Sportiqe and soon found his clothes in every NBA arena.

If you've ever found yourself gazing wistfully up at the United Center rafters wondering what Dennis Rodman is up to these days, the answer is, well, not much. "I don't do [bleep]," Rodman said. "I just live life to the fullest, man. " The Worm recently held court in an exclusive, profanity-laced interview with RedEye prior to an appearance on Saturday night at Arrow on Ogden, a rare occasion for a man who remains beloved by Bulls fans despite the fact he spent only three seasons in red and black.

If you ask me, the days of "nerds versus jocks" are long gone. These days it's very hard to make a distinction between the two factions, because the line that seperates them has blurred to the point of being non-existent. Consider this: two prominent Chicago Bears players, Lance Briggs and Israel Odonijea have produced their own comic books. The current GMs of the Bears and Chicago Cubs are admitted "stat nerds", using sabermetrics and the like to help them make decisions on what players to draft and sign.

My typical weekend does not involve sports bars. This past weekend, however, I went to six. On a self-induced wing-a-thon at some of Chicago's newest sports bars, I spent my evenings popping aspirin for flatscreen-induced migraines and trying to come off as though I know anything about the NBA, NHL or UFC by mimicking the grunts and groans of people near me wearing jerseys. Overall, I think I did pretty well. By the time Monday rolled around, I'd even managed to come out learning a few things: Everyone looks disgusting eating wings.
