Fitz & the Tantrums frontman Michael "Fitz" Fitzpatrick will always remember the group's first trek to Chicago, since the sextet arrived in town for a show at Metro just one day after the epic February blizzard that brought the city to a standstill. "When we pulled up they were literally just pulling the cars off Lake Shore Drive," says the singer. At this point, the weather might be the only thing that can cool off the Los Angeles soul revivalists, who were named Hot Band in a recent issue of Rolling Stone and are currently gearing up to play a trio of sold-out shows at Metro.

That took long enough. I've been throwing stuff for years. Hats off to Kerry Wood who did something rash, disgusting, inexplicable and inexcusable. He had an honest expression of emotion and (gasp!) threw his cap and glove into the crowd the other night. Bravo. I hate watching the Cubs. Sad, but true. They are a constant reminder that all the money in the world can't solve deep-rooted problems in culture and philosophy. Heck, St. Louis lost Albert Pujols, Tony LaRussa and Dave Duncan and they're humming along.

Am I the only one who can't wait for Justin Bieber to start doing excessive amounts of cocaine? I don't say that in a mean-spirited, schadenfreude-drenched sense; just that the hyper-celebrity entity known as Justin Bieber surely is going to make for a really terrific VH1 "Behind the Music" or equivalent self-destructive documentary where still images of his cherubic face are juxtaposed with stories of him throwing Grammys through plate-glass windows...

*** (out of four) Though his glorious mustache causes him to resemble a man, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) is, in reality, the ultimate giant baby -- a random collision of unchecked impulses and defiant tantrums. Whoever hires the fired anchorman to host the Sea World dolphin show after wife Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) chooses her promotion over her husband must have known the guy soon would be drunkenly asking the two female trainers to kiss in front of the crowd.

Blackhawks fans expected a rough time in L.A. given the team has struggled away from home in the playoffs. Sure enough, Staples Center was a house of horrors for the Hawks in games 3 and 4 of the Western Conference finals. But let's not dwell on that. Instead, we feel a faceoff is in order. We even traveled all the way to L.A. for research. Which city represents hockey better? Fan dedication: Chicago Hawks fans got this. The United Center turns into a sea of red once the gates open.
