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.
