1. How nervous are you for the Blackhawks heading into the second round of the playoffs?
|Emily Brown: Not. I've got faith in my team.|
|Evan F. Moore: Not at all. The Hawks will put pressure on a goalie who's known for falling apart at the worst time.|
|Phil Thompson: I'm more nervous Chelsea Dagger has been secretly recording me. That's for you, Sterling, you magnificent d-bag.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: Not nervous yet. I just ate my second-round caterpillars; they won't be butterflies until tonight.|
|Bag Boy: After last series, if I'm honest, not at all.|
2. Why has the Hawks' penalty killing improved so much lately?
|Emily Brown: It's the power of the playoff beard.|
|Evan F. Moore: The team got sick of cable news networks talking about it.|
|Phil Thompson: The answer lies in who the puck knows.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: Obamacare.|
|Bag Boy: I believe, and I can't verify this, they are working on it in practice.|
3. What does Alexei Ramirez get for collecting a team record 40 hits in April?
|Emily Brown: His name in the record books for a record that won't be mentioned again all season.|
|Evan F. Moore: A six-wing dinner with mild sauce from Harold's. That man needs to eat.|
|Phil Thompson: He gets his own bobblehead. Meanwhile, Dayan Viciedo gets his own bobblehands.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: Impossibly high expectations.|
|Bag Boy: A plaque that says "please do that every month."|
4. What's your Kentucky Derby tradition?
|Emily Brown: Turn it on a minute before the race begins and root for the horse with the coolest name.|
|Evan F. Moore: Faking a temporary interest.|
|Phil Thompson: For one day, I only Instagram photos of John Elway, Tori Spelling and Sarah Jessica Parker.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: I always watch with neigh bores.|
|Bag Boy: I'm a professional. I start early. Then I pass out. I wake up and check "SportsCenter" to see who won. See?|
5. Who's your favorite long shot in Chicago sports?
|Emily Brown: The White Sox, and winning the World Series!|
|Evan F. Moore: White Sox attendance numbers going up. I want the fan base to get to the park and see Jose Abreu play.|
|Phil Thompson: The Cubs. And mark that down as my answer for the next 15 years.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: Gotta go with the Cubs. They're the team that most reminds me of horse manure.|
|Bag Boy: Carmelo Anthony.|
