Sighting: Michael Jordan hangs with Team USA at Harry Caray's and other Ryder Cup sightings

If you have been looking for members of Team USA and Team Europe around the city this week, you’ve been searching in the wrong place. The golfers have been hanging out mostly in the suburbs while in town for the Ryder Cup at Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Ill.

Team USA -- including Tiger Woods, Davis Love III, Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson and Fred Couples -- had dinner Monday and Thursday at Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse in Lombard. Michael Jordan, who was named Team USA advisor, joined the guys Thursday at Harry Caray’s and signed autographs and posed for photos with patrons.

Team Europe – including Jose Maria Olazabal, Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia -- dined Tuesday at Harry Caray’s in Lombard. Team USA opted for Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse in Oak Brook that night. Woods and co. arrived on a bus and entered through the back. From what I hear, security wouldn’t let anyone get close to them.

Michael Phelps took part in the Ryder Cup celebrity scramble Tuesday and joined fellow swimmer Conor Dwyer for dinner Wednesday at Joe’s Stone Crab. Afterward, they met up with Bulls legend Scottie Pippen, who also took part in the celebrity scramble, and his wife Larsa Pippen, at Paris Club’s upstairs lounge, Studio Paris. Phelps hung out Thursday at Bull & Bear. Pippen celebrated his birthday Monday at Sunda with Jordan, Ahmad Rashad and former NBA All-Star Antoine Walker.

    'Magic Mike XXL' is the summer's best sequel so far

    2012’s “Magic Mike” and its sequel, “Magic Mike XXL,” could have been so stupid, and I’m sure those who haven’t seen either one assume that they are. I mean, think of how cheesy a movie about male strippers could be. Based on the commercials, they barely seem like movies at all—just two-hour thrust-athons...

    Vince Staples deals in pessimism, for good reason. The Long Beach rapper has seen a lot of violence and despair in his 21 years. He'll tell you about it too, in unflinching clarity that few artists his age possess. There’s little if any hope in his music. Yet even with the darkness oozing out of...
