1. Let's have your World Cup prediction.
|Katie Gibson: Vince LiFonti: Germany. Their team nickname is Nationalmannschaft. How could I not go for that?!|
|Evan F. Moore: GOOOAAAALLLLL!|
|Phil Thompson: Team USA doesn't make it out of group. When your own coach says winning the Cup's not "realistic" ...|
|Jimmy Greenfield: Blackhawks in six.|
|Bag Boy: I like Brazil. Not to win it, just as a country.|
2. Why is Phil Mickelson hoping for rain at the U.S. Open?
|Katie Gibson: Just preparing an excuse for not winning the U.S. Open. Again.|
|Evan F. Moore: He wants to get home and watch the season finale of "Game of Thrones." Also, he wants to spare us another Sunday collapse.|
|Phil Thompson: Maybe to re-enact the kiss from "The Notebook." Or "Dear John." Not that I ever watch Nicholas Sparks movies. (Stop talking!)|
|Jimmy Greenfield: He just bought a white T-shirt and, well, he's a bit of a show-off.|
|Bag Boy: As Steve Coburn/Wilford Brimley would say, that's the coward's way out.|
3. How should Bears quarterback Jordan Palmer treat his injured pectoral muscle?
|Katie Gibson: Forte up the middle. Absolutely no one will see that coming.|
|Evan F. Moore: Like a boss. Or in his case, a backup.|
|Phil Thompson: With lots of rest. Which he should get. When he's cut. (I kid, JP, but keep a bag packed anyway.)|
|Jimmy Greenfield: The same way I treat my little-used objects, with a spritz of WD-40.|
|Bag Boy: I'd start with a nice deep tissue massage, then some wine, I mean, uh, ice it.|
4. El Rey Network has a soccer player/spy show in the works. Thoughts?
|Katie Gibson: Nope. Not a single one.|
|Evan F. Moore: Yo no se. *shakes head*|
|Phil Thompson: Who's the soccer player/spy? James Boooooooooooooooooond?|
|Jimmy Greenfield: I read that question 10 times and still have no idea what the hell's going on.|
|Bag Boy: Yeah, yeah. If the chicks are hot, I'll watch.|
5. Why are the Cubs in no rush to promote players from the minor leagues?
|Katie Gibson: They want those players to experience wins at some point in their careers.|
|Evan F. Moore: Because they need them for that stadium in Schaumburg that nobody talks about.|
|Phil Thompson: Promote them to what?|
|Jimmy Greenfield: They're still in the process of cloning Kris Bryant and it's not scientifically feasible.|
|Bag Boy: You have to protect their psyche, because, yeah, it is that bad up here.|
