1. What Cubs or White Sox question do you want answered most this season?
Tracy Swartz: Is a World Series win out of the question for the Cubs?
Courtney Linehan: What games have free bobblehead promos? (It's the only question that will matter this year.)
Soxman: When do playoff tickets go on sale? Think positively, Sox fans!
Brad Zibung: When will all the good Cubs I saw at spring training get called up from Double-A?
Ernest Wilkins: Will either team be in the playoff hunt at the All-Star break?
2. Who's your favorite to win the NCAA tournament now?
Tracy Swartz: Still UF. You can't spell Flourida without Final "Four."
Courtney Linehan: My first job was covering Iowa State basketball. Next question.
Soxman: Tracy Swartz. She's pretty much got her Ventra ticket punched. It's been "pun" watching her.
Brad Zibung: Well, I'm from Wisconsin so I probably have to say the Badgers, don't I?
Ernest Wilkins: Mount Holyoke or Morris Brown or me and four kids I find on the street.
3. If the NFL "implodes in 10 years," as Mark Cuban predicts, what happens then?
Tracy Swartz: Then he can hog the spotlight. Mark his words.
Courtney Linehan: The Puppy Bowl, 16 times per year.
Soxman: I've been watching the "Cosmos" series on Fox: survival of the fittest. Hello, college football!
Brad Zibung: Cuban buys the league for pennies on the dollar on an episode of "Shark Tank."
Ernest Wilkins: Three words, people. Mutant. League. Football. (If you're younger than 25, Google it.)
4. LeBron James vs. sleeved jerseys. Who ya got?
Tracy Swartz: Russia. Is there another arms race?
Courtney Linehan: LeBron. He makes the league millions of dollars, and nobody bought those ugly jerseys.
Soxman: King LeBron. Off with the sleeves is better than off with the head says the king.
Brad Zibung: Which side is the new commissioner on? I learned from David Stern that the commish always wins.
Ernest Wilkins: LeBron James. I hear his headband is the one who's actually been in control this whole time.
5. The Masters without Tiger Woods would be ...
Tracy Swartz: ... like Tiger Woods without condoms. Every Tiger needs a coat.
Courtney Linehan: ... just fine, thanks.
Soxman: ... like Wrestlemania without the Undertaker or the Cubs without losing.
Brad Zibung: ... pretty standard considering he hasn't shown up there in years.
Ernest Wilkins: ... just a bunch of white dudes in pleated pants. So, business as usual?
