1. How nervous are you for the Bears heading into this weekend?
|Phil Thompson: If we have to be nervous about the Arizona Cardinals, why even go to the playoffs?|
|Tracy Swartz: Reading the Cards, outlook not good.|
|Alex Quigley: Not. If we win, postseason is in play. Lose, and Lovie is gone.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: Extremely nervous; it's causing a flare up with my Irritable Growl Syndrome.|
|Bag Boy: I'm nervous. I'll be more nervous that they'll win the next two and changes won't be made.|
2. Why is Carlos Boozer playing better than last year?
|Phil Thompson: When you finally ditch the Captain Weird Beard look, you play better with your team-mateys.|
|Tracy Swartz: He's taken fewer trips ... over gym bags.|
|Alex Quigley: That Rose guy isn't weighing him down anymore.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: He stopped taking his name literally.|
|Bag Boy: It's easy to excel in the preseason. No, wait, the regular season started?|
3. Which Chicago athlete will be next to complain about fans who boo?
|Phil Thompson: Alfonso Soriano? But what do I know, I had doubled down on Jay Cutler being first.|
|Tracy Swartz: The Cubs. I think of them as "one" instead of "won."|
|Alex Quigley: Hopefully, a Chicago Blackhawk.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: Carlos Boozer, of course.|
|Bag Boy: I'm going to say ... someone irrelevant. Any member of the Bears offense.|
4. Finish this sentence: When I think Bulls-Knicks, I think ____.
|Phil Thompson: John Starks: in-your-face nemesis, bag boy extraordinaire and forefather of the punchable face.|
|Tracy Swartz: Everyone needs to chill, er, Melo out.|
|Alex Quigley: Hue Hollins is dirty. That call was crap.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: Could the NHL please stop ruining my winter?|
|Bag Boy: Derek Harper, Jo-Jo English, fighting at the commissioner's feet, 1994.|
5. What present would you by for a Chicago sports figure this year?
|Phil Thompson: I'd give Brian Urlacher a can of Raid to get rid up that bug up his ... oh, look, fruitcake.|
|Tracy Swartz: I hope the Bears got my holiday letter this year. The letter "W."|
|Alex Quigley: "Madden 13" for Mike Tice.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: I'd buy ever member of the Bears' offensive line some big boy pants.|
|Bag Boy: Blood transfusion for Lovie Smith. That corpse could use something in those veins.|
