1. Let's have your Stanley Cup finals prediction.
Marc Silverman: Clear Michigan Avenue for a parade on Friday, June 28.
Pete McMurray: Hawks win in six and I cry like a baby (like circa 2010).
Ernest Wilkins: Hawks win the Cup. We all descend into a drunken rage that lasts until Halloween.
Elliott Serrano: There will be endless comparisons between Chicago and Boston hot dogs. (And Hawks in six!)
Sarah Spain: I suffer—but survive—at least three more grabbers en route to another Hawks win.
2. Give a nickname to Corey Crawford's glove.
Marc Silverman: Gary Payton.
Pete McMurray: The Love Glove, which will help Ruin the Bruins.
Ernest Wilkins: "Excalibur?" Nah, too nerdy. "Mjolnir?" Nah, too Norse. How about "The Mitten of Destiny?"
Elliott Serrano: The Crow's Nest, where dreams—and opponents' goals—go to die.
Sarah Spain: Goal-burglar Helper.
3. Who's been the biggest surprise for the Hawks this postseason?
Marc Silverman: Big Bick and his wrister. (Careful with the typos!)
Pete McMurray: Bickell ... now known as #BICKELL!
Ernest Wilkins: Bryan Bickell. He's going to be a very rich man next season. Hope it's in Chicago!
Elliott Serrano: Bryan "How Many Zeroes are you putting on my next check?" Bickell!
Sarah Spain: Ice Girl Cynthia—she's really stepped up her rink sweeping.
4. What should the winner of the French Open receive?
Marc Silverman: Je n'aime pas ca.
Pete McMurray: Is that a party during the Stanley Cup?
Ernest Wilkins: MELISSA THEURIAU (Google her).
Elliott Serrano: Lifetime supply of French Fries. Or do we still call them Freedom Fries?
Sarah Spain: Lifetime supply of berets.
5. If you sat through a 20-inning baseball game, how would you recover?
Marc Silverman: If it was a Cubs or Sox 20-inning game ... you would NOT recover.
Pete McMurray: If it's anything like Saturday's Cubs game, I would go directly to Bernie's and drink heavily.
Ernest Wilkins: Watching golf? Puts me to sleep every time.
Elliott Serrano: A double espresso and a double-overtime hockey game to get the blood going again.
Sarah Spain: Why would I need to recover from a six-hour nap?
