1. After four ejections last time, what can we expect from Bulls-Knicks on Friday?
Tracy Swartz: Certainly not a mellow, errr, Melo game.
Phil Thompson: Carmelo Anthony goes on a cereal killing spree. Cheerio, mate.
Alex Quigley: John Starks will attempt to dunk over Jo. He will fail.
Jimmy Greenfield: My client declines to answer this question on grounds the Blackhawks are back.
Bag Boy: Carmelo will confront Carlos boozer ... just wanting to talk.
2. Jay Cutler is so excited for the Bears' coaching search because ...
Tracy Swartz: ... now Lovie's going to pack his things and go. Tainted Lovie.
Phil Thompson: ... because it opens the door for his lifelong mentor, Grumpy Cat.
Alex Quigley: ... he gets a new euchre partner. Lovie constantly got set and never went alone.
Jimmy Greenfield: ... he'll get to shrug through an entirely new offense.
Bag Boy: ... there is a chance he could have a non-mummy for a coach.
3. The Hawks open the season at the defending champion Kings. Start the trash talk.
Tracy Swartz: Eh, in L.A., it's more faux than foe.
Phil Thompson: You're from L.A. -- your fans wouldn't recognize a Cup unless it had a Starbucks logo on it.
Alex Quigley: Let's all agree that Phoenix goalie Mike Smith is a horrible human being.
Jimmy Greenfield: "YOUR WIFE'S A ..." Oh, just go watch "Slap Shot."
Bag Boy: Hey! How did that trade for Gretzky 25 years ago work out? Thought so!
4. What should we expect from the NFL playoffs this weekend?
Tracy Swartz: The Bears hibernating.
Phil Thompson: Brent Musburger's special report on the bitter rivalry between Ashley Manning and Gisele Bundchen.
Alex Quigley: Two blowouts, one upset and far too little Katherine Webb.
Jimmy Greenfield: Phil Emery will be interviewing each team's offensive coordinator during halftime.
Bag Boy: Home teams win across the board.
5. Who was the biggest snub from the Baseball Hall of Fame this year?
Tracy Swartz: Sosa. He could have used a little help getting there.
Phil Thompson: I would say Mark McGwire is by far the biggest, but that's probably because of the creatine.
Alex Quigley: The scrappiest scrapper that ever scrapped a scrap, Craig Scrappio.
Jimmy Greenfield: The only player from the 19th century to use steroids, Horatio K. Snub.
Bag Boy: Easy. Jack Morris.
