Hey Chicago, what do you say? Do the Cubs need more songs to play? Sure fans belt out "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," a seventh-inning stretch tradition usually led by a celebrity singing off-key. And then there's the beloved anthem "Go, Cubs, Go" by Chicago folk singer Steve Goodman blaring when the Cubs claim victory at home and fans stumble out the ballpark. Well, turns out there's a boatload of other songs penned and recorded in honor of the lovable losers joining the likes of Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder's "All the Way. " Just in time for the start of the season, a video that...

I'm trying hard to find a way to feel good about Sunday's Bears-Tebows game after the recent "football game loss" to Kansas City. I couldn't help but feel a sense of déjà vu, and I realized that we had indeed been here before in the Lovie Smith era. I'm not even sure The K.C. Masterpiece Game (note: nickname is ironic) ranks in the bottom five. Try to un-repress the memories of these stink bombs: The Holy Crap, I Just Watched Our Quarterback Die On TV Game 2010 at N.Y. Giants Remember this game?

Christmas night is going to suck. I don't care if the Bulls beat the Lakers by 30 that afternoon. It doesn't matter if Santa comes down your chimney with Charlize Theron and a PlayStation 4. There's a nationally televised Bears-Packers game that evening, and Chicago will be starting a quarterback that's either 1) Caleb Hanie or 2) a guy bad enough to still be listed behind Caleb Hanie on the depth chart as I write this. But we'll watch. It's Bears-Packers. Most of us will have the next day off, and technically the Bears will have playoff life left.

Other than gambling and rooting against Green Bay, the NFL playoffs won't be very pleasurable for Bears fans. Watching the Niners' pedestrian offense or the .500 Broncos hosting a playoff game will conjure up serious cases of the "what ifs. " Here's hoping as George McCaskey slumps into his favorite recliner and fires up his 112-inch screen, the new chairman doesn't make moves for the sake of making moves. Don't clean house, George. Not yet. Wiping the slate clean on Bears management and coaches won't make for a better football team in 2012.

I can be a jerk. A sports jerk, in particular. (Other aspects of my life's jerkery are up for debate.) "The funeral for the 2011 Packers will be held tomorrow morning in Green Bay. Wearing black is best, but Day-Glo orange or camo is acceptable. " As the Green Bay Packers imploded Sunday afternoon in front of 72,080 cheese-wearing and cheese-eating Wisconsinites, I couldn't help but laugh. "LOL" doesn't always mean audible laughter is happening, but I promise you I was ROTFL'ing so damn hard that I hit my head on hardwood.

You'll read and hear a lot of Super Bowl XLVI predictions this week, many from sources that don't cover football 51 weeks a year. "Kelly Ripa breaks down Brady versus Manning!" "Perez Hilton tells you why the G-Men will cover the spread!" You'll hit your saturation point right about … now. Forget the game for a moment. Imma predict what happens leading up to--and after--the Superb Owl. Tuesday: It's Media Day, so two things are certain: There will be a busty Latina reporter in a tube top asking inane questions in broken English and someone from"The Tonight...

I bet my editor is going to headline this "Rooting To Lose" so it really pops off the page. (Editor's note: I considered it.) The Blackhawks sit comfortably as the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference. After a particularly ugly loss to Nashville on Sunday, it's understandable that many Hawks fans want a trail of undefeated, blood-stained ice for the rest of the regular season. But I think we'd be better off if the Hawks finish on a "meh" note. The highly underrated sportsclubstats.com (using more than 1 billion weighted simulations of the rest of the NHL regular season!
