1. Make a prediction for Game 7 between the Hawks and Red Wings.
Tracy Swartz: It will be a long Hawk of Shame back to Detroit for the Red Wings.
Julie DiCaro: Jimmy Eat Puck will become a popular band name in Chicago.
Soxman:"He scores!" I'm not talking about Patrick Kane on Rush Street either. Hawks win.
Brad Zibung: Everyone in town will either love or hate Crawford, largely depending on things beyond his control.
Ernest Wilkins: Hawks win. It's an all-time classic. The bar I'm in runs out of bourbon with 6:23 left in the third.
2. What's Coach Q's mustache thinking heading into Game 7?
Tracy Swartz: "I hope we win the face-off."
Julie DiCaro: "This is no time for Pantene. Bring on the hard stuff -- Pert!"
Soxman: "Talk about hairy situations. Another win and I'll be more popular than Magnum PI's peach fuzz."
Brad Zibung: I can't read the 'stache's mind. You'll have to ask it on Facebook on the "Joel Quenneville's Mustache" page.
Ernest Wilkins: "Was I the only one wondering what happened to Portia De Rossi's face? No? Just me?"
3. Give Ernest Wilkins advice for his free-throw showdown against the Chicago Sky.
Tracy Swartz: Aim high.
Julie DiCaro: Two words: Granny shot.
Soxman: Be earnest and not Ernest. Do not say "you let them win."
Brad Zibung: HAND IN THE COOKIE JAR!
Ernest Wilkins: You're the best there is at what you do. Listen to a ton of Flocka beforehand. #BestInTheWorld
4. When John Paxson says Derrick Rose will return "better and stronger ..."
Tracy Swartz: ... he's indicating that someday, one day, eventually, Derrick Rose will return!
Julie DiCaro: ... "on" and "the court."
Soxman: ... he has been watching reruns of the "Six Million Dollar Man" on Me TV again.
Brad Zibung: ... his quote got cut off. He finished it with " ... in even nicer suits on the end of the bench."
Ernest Wilkins: ... he's absolutely right. Start deleting those hate tweets now, you fickle buttholes.
5. If Cubs fan Julie DiCaro and Soxman were in a steel cage match, who would win and why?
Tracy Swartz: She'll stuff him. Get it, Don'tCaro.
Julie DiCaro: Soxman might be bigger, but I've got 30 years of pent-up Cubbie rage on my side.
Soxman: Julie with "help" from WWE Cubs Fan CM Punk. Besides, Kane calls her the Little Red Monster.
Brad Zibung: No comment. The abuse of unofficial mascots is never something to take lightly.
Ernest Wilkins: Julie's a tough one, but gotta hand it to Soxman coming off the top with the Randy Savage elbow.
