1. Instead of cheering, what should Bears fans do when their team is in the red zone?
Tracy Swartz: Since they are Cruise-ing, hope for a silent berth.
Julie DiCaro: The Macarena.
Soxman: Shut up! The same thing I told Elliot Serrano about his anti-White Sox comments this year.
Pete McMurray: Drink their beers. Oh wait, maybe that's why they didn't stay quiet.
Stick Figure: Well, they could boo the other team, but that might be confusing.
2. The officiating in the first week of the NFL season was ...
Tracy Swartz: ... pretty good for half staff. They honored the flag well.
Julie DiCaro: ... those were officials?
Soxman: ... like a scab. Don't pick at it or it might get worse.
Pete McMurray: ... not bad at all. Bears won and Packers lost, right? So we're good!
Stick Figure: ... easy to keep track of. That's why they wear black-and-white striped shirts, after all.
3. What odds do you give the White Sox to win the AL Central?
Tracy Swartz: Seven to one. Those could also serve as Sox crowd estimates.
Julie DiCaro: Better odds than I give Miguel Cabrera at developing some range.
Soxman: It's not about odds, it's about certainties. Don't stop believing!
Pete McMurray: If I don't say 2-1, my brother Ed will punch me in the stomach!
Stick Figure: It doesn't seem strange to me. They're playing really well!
4. The Cubs' Darwin Barney is on a record errorless streak. What's his secret?
Tracy Swartz: Darwinism: Survival of the fittest.
Julie DiCaro: Ovaltine.
Soxman: Soxman teaches CPS kids at home due to the strike: Read Darwin's theory on Natural Selection.
Pete McMurray: The guy is so close to the ground because he is "height challenged," he has an advantage!
Stick Figure: Getting plenty of rest. You're not sharp when you're sleepy.
5. How are Chicago sports like CTA construction?
Tracy Swartz: There's only cheering when it's over.
Julie DiCaro: Both baseball teams show up in the summer and disappear in the fall.
Soxman: White Sox: Despite the headaches, you'll reach your destination. Cubs: Construction is ongoing, expect delays.
Pete McMurray: You expect it year-round, it's always a thorn in your side and when it's happening, you REALLY get upset!
Stick Figure: The Bears' orange jerseys remind me of those traffic cones.
