1. The Bears are still fighting in training camp. What's a head coach to do?
|Sami Grisafe (Former Chicago Force QB, @SamiGrisafe): #HungerGames|
|Bear Jordan: Turn off the AC in the dorms. That ought to take care of it.|
|Soxman: Carpe diem. Martysaurus Rex vs. Kyle "High Hit" Fuller at WWE's SummerSlam.|
|Mick Swasko: Let `em go. "Play Angry" worked out really well in Super Bowl XLI.|
|Ernest Wilkins: Hmm, maybe let them fight? #FreeTheBlackUnicorn|
2. Detroit Lions quarterbacks will wear recycled jerseys. What are the Bears waiting for?
|Sami Grisafe (Former Chicago Force QB, @SamiGrisafe): The rest of the city of Chicago to start recycling. One Team, One City, One Jersey.|
|Bear Jordan: The Chicago Park District's advice, maybe?|
|Soxman: The Bears get "green" enough when quarterbacks like Cade McNown and Rick Mirer are mentioned.|
|Mick Swasko: I don't know, you'd think the Cutler/Cavallari crew would be SO TOTALLY into Upcycling.|
|Ernest Wilkins: Wait, what? What are they recycled from? The tears of their fan base over the past 40 years?|
3. How will Cubs fans welcome Javier Baez to Wrigley Field on Friday?
|Sami Grisafe (Former Chicago Force QB, @SamiGrisafe): With a beer and a dream.|
|Bear Jordan: By throwing his home run back onto the field.|
|Soxman: The usual, ecstatic enthusiasm followed by epic letdown. I kid, I kid.|
|Mick Swasko: Like Baez caught them slippin'.|
|Ernest Wilkins: Hopefully with a statue? He's gonna be the truth, Ruth.|
4. Jose Abreu is so underappreciated in Chicago ...
|Sami Grisafe (Former Chicago Force QB, @SamiGrisafe): ... his replica jerseys are being sent to Detroit for their recycled jersey fad this fall. #aheadofthecurve|
|Bear Jordan: ... he's THIS close to asking to be traded to Detroit. DETROIT!|
|Soxman: Ummm disagree. Have you heard the national anthem? "Jose can you see?"|
|Mick Swasko: ... everyone forgot he won "Most Underappreciated" with all the other accolades he's gotten.|
|Ernest Wilkins: ... that he's already in the Hall of Fame, but we care more about the Bears' third-stringers.|
5. Soccer's popularity in the U.S. is soaring. What gives?
|Sami Grisafe (Former Chicago Force QB, @SamiGrisafe): Soccer was No. 1 on BuzzFeed's "Top 5 Sports With A Hot Fan Base." Soccer also was No. 1 on the "Top 10 Bandwagons of 2014."|
|Bear Jordan: Ask Martellus Bennett.|
|Soxman: A World Cup semifinal can have that effect on a country.|
|Mick Swasko: We're finally learning to juggle a nation of two footballs.|
|Ernest Wilkins: Everyone finally got with the program? Pro Tip: Support Everton in the Premiership!|
