1. Now that Derrick Rose has been medically cleared to play, what's he waiting for?
|Marc Silverman: His knee is on the Cubs rebuilding plan timeline. "Wait till next year."|
|Pete McMurray: For the Hawks hoopla to die down so he can get the publicity he deserves.|
|Jim Walsh: At this point, I have no idea. But I'm strangely OK with it. He'll play when he's ready.|
|Elliott Serrano: The season premiere of "Game of Thrones"! That's not just me, right?|
|Sarah Spain: A sign from God?|
2. What was the best part about the Blackhawks' points streak?
|Marc Silverman: Naming Patrick Kane's shootout goal move vs. Detroit. Either the "Kane Dangle" or "Chi-Kane-ry."|
|Pete McMurray: That we can do it all over again with this team!|
|Jim Walsh: Every time the Hawks won, an angel got its wings.|
|Elliott Serrano: It made people in Chicago start caring about hockey again. Kudos, guys.|
|Sarah Spain: Having something to talk about other than Derrick Rose's yearlong recovery.|
3. Former Bear Anthony Adams won Dancing with Chicago Celebrities. What's he get?
|Marc Silverman: A feature story written by Tracy Swartz. Adams' moves are better and faster than the CTA's.|
|Pete McMurray: A big retirement pension at 55 with the other NFL players!|
|Jim Walsh: Dancing with Chicago Celebrities is a thing?|
|Elliott Serrano: The right to punch Chicago "celeb" Jim Belushi. Repeatedly.|
|Sarah Spain: A spot in next week's High Diving with Chicago Celebrities event.|
4. How much attention should we pay to the World Baseball Classic?
|Marc Silverman: Not sure. But they're literally fighting for attention.|
|Pete McMurray: There was one? Sorry, I've been caught up with the Hawks.|
|Jim Walsh: Pretty close attention. If you don't, Canada and Mexico will beat the crap out of you.|
|Elliott Serrano: What other sport has the same potential to start a war between Canada and Mexico?|
|Sarah Spain: Enough to avoid catching a left hook from Canada's catcher.|
5. Hitting nine 3-pointers in one half is like ...
|Marc Silverman: ... hitting one 3-pointer, 11 2-pointers and two free throws. Is this like an ACT question or something?|
|Pete McMurray: ... 1996 all over again.|
|Jim Walsh: ... Timberlake and Samberg's revival of the D.I.A.B. guys on Saturday: Flawless.|
|Elliott Serrano: ... scoring 27 points. I was told there would be no math!|
|Sarah Spain: ... sinking all four of your bags in one round of cornhole.|
