Song of the Day by Eric Berman – “Fox On The Run” by Sweet

sweet

Song of the Day by Eric Berman – “Fox On The Run” by Sweet Boy, I hated this song when it was a huge hit back in 1975. It stood for everything I disliked about commercial rock ‘n’ roll. The band was totally lightweight and poppy, and their brand of glam rock had no teeth […]

Song of the Day by Eric Berman – “Don’t Let’s Start” by They Might Be Giants You can’t bottle creativity, but in the case of They Might Be Giants, you certainly can buy it! They were two wild and crazy nerd-boys when they burst onto the scene in the 1980s, we just didn’t realize how […]

Time for Bears to Start Over ( Again)

The Bears will once again search for a new Head Coach.

Black Monday escalated rather quickly and before you could even finish your breakfast the Bears had fired General Manager Phil Emery and Head Coach Marc Trestman.

Northwestern Trounces Northern Kentucky 76-55

Cobb

Sometimes, even great shooters struggle to find their shot.

Bulls Look to Get Back on Track

Joakim Noah talks to the media after Tuesdays practice.

The Chicago Bulls have definitely improved offensively so far this season. With the addition of Pau Gasol, and departure of the smaller/less effective Carlos Boozer, the team has upped their points per game average from 93.7 to 102.6. Strangely enough, it has been the defense that has struggled at times. The Bulls (12-8) are allowing […]
