1. Now that the NHL's coming back, how do you feel?
Marc Silverman: That the Hawks still have a crappy goaltending situation.
Megan Crepeau: Meh. I live in Lakeview. If I want to see hairy bros brawling in subzero temperatures, I just look outside.
Ernest Wilkins: So amazing in fact, that I just hip-checked a girl on the Blue Line.
Canada Goose: Like Beyonce just gave me a three-hour feather massage.
Sarah Spain: If I had to sum it up in one word: WHOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOO!
2. How will Patrick Kane celebrate the end of the NHL lockout?
Marc Silverman: Shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots on goal!
Megan Crepeau: With a nice cup of herbal tea and a good book, of course.
Ernest Wilkins: It's called a liquid steak. 1.5 oz of Bacardi 151 and a splash of Worcestershire sauce. He had four.
Canada Goose: Partying at my place. And no, his mom is not invited.
Sarah Spain: Go sober for a night, just for a change of pace.
3. Make a prediction for the BCS championship game.
Marc Silverman: Whichever team's coach has a tattoo of his own QB is the definite loser.
Megan Crepeau: Whoever wins, we (fans of a common-sense playoff system) lose.
Ernest Wilkins: See my column at redeyechicago.com. Long story short, RAMMER JAMMER YELLOW HAMMER.
Canada Goose: The Canadian Junior Hockey League will still draw better ratings up north.
Sarah Spain: I predict at least 200 "Rudy" references on my Facebook timeline before halftime.
4. Whom should the Bears consult in their search for a head coach?
Marc Silverman: Ask Lovie which offensive mind he likes. Then eliminate that coach.
Megan Crepeau: The RedEye sports desk, naturally. We know everything.
Ernest Wilkins: Anyone not named Mike Ditka. It's time to move on, Chicago.
Canada Goose: Why, Manitoba's Israel Idonije, of course! He knows how to win in the cold.
Sarah Spain: Donald Trump. That guy has been spot-on about just about everything lately.
5. Why did the Cubs bring back Dontrelle Willis?
Marc Silverman: Whatcha talkin 'bout, Theo?!
Megan Crepeau: They're pulling a real-life "Eastbound and Down," but without all the swearing and drugs and talent and such.
Ernest Wilkins: Because they obviously like giving the finger to their fans? I dunno, man.
Canada Goose: Is he Donald Duck's French-Canadian cousin?
Sarah Spain: Nostalgia?
