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.|
