1. Who's your favorite to win the 2015 NCAA tournament?
Clark Jones: The NBA's worst teams. That's why they call `em "lottery" picks.
Kate Bernot: Northwestern! OK, wishful thinking from an alumna, but we've seen this year that anything's possible.
Scott Bolohan: Oral Roberts is always my favorite.
Bear Jordan: A team with a bear mascot. Cal? Maine maybe?
Angi Taylor: The ones who put the ball in the basket thing the most times! Go team!
2. How are the Blackhawks playing so well without Toews and Kane?
Clark Jones: Strong play from the recently signed Miami duo Crockett & Tubbs.
Kate Bernot: Well, it's not like hockey's a team sport or anything.
Scott Bolohan: An increase in team hugs.
Bear Jordan: Early playoff beards.
Angi Taylor: Stanley Cup champs don't live and die by only two players.
3. What in Chicago sports would you describe as "grossly inappropriate"?
Clark Jones: How does U.S. Cellular still sponsor a stadium when no one still owns a U.S. Cellular phone?
Kate Bernot: Beer prices at Wrigley. Come on, I'm gonna need at least four of these to make the Cubs watchable.
Scott Bolohan: I'm gonna go ahead and say the team with the culturally insensitive symbol.
Bear Jordan: Derrick Rose's knees, pre-surgery.
Angi Taylor: The fact that troughs still exist at Wrigley. 100 years is still too soon for an upgrade?
4. When unofficial "mascots" start throwing punches in bars ...
Clark Jones: ... it's only 2 a.m. in Wrigleyville
Kate Bernot: ... the fur really flies.
Scott Bolohan: ... pretty sure Throwing Punches in Bars is an unofficial Cubs mascot already.
Bear Jordan: ... requests to hire me as a bouncer skyrocket.
Angi Taylor: ... OFFICIAL jail time should be served. #StayClassyWrigleyville
5. Why is interleague play starting so early this season?
Clark Jones: PED users get to play each other once before all denying their heads grew four sizes.
Kate Bernot: Because everyone knows interleague play is more fun in the snow! *whimpers*
Scott Bolohan: Nothing matters until we know which of the Sox or Rockies are better.
Bear Jordan: What better way to boost the White Sox batting averages than in Colorado?
Angi Taylor: White Sox fans need to watch us lose to new teams.
