1. The Bears' 2014 schedule is out. Discuss.
Bear Jordan: Jay Cutler is already deciding at which Disney park he will spend his post-Super Bowl celebration.
Evan F. Moore: I'd like to take this opportunity to remind Bears fans that Jay Cutler is the quarterback. Like it or not.
Tracy Swartz: I've never had Lion for Thanksgiving.
Jimmy Greenfield: The Bears will go 8-8 in games in which Jay Cutler is vastly overrated.
Bag Boy: At San Fran, at New England, both losses. The rest, pick 'em!
2. How will the Bulls' weekend in Washington, D.C., turn out?
Bear Jordan: Better than games 1 and 2. Or else.
Evan F. Moore: It will be a short one. Don't forget to talk your congressman about the tour.
Tracy Swartz: They need a comeback to come back.
Jimmy Greenfield: They'll be invited to visit President Obama on Sunday to get a pardon after the sweep.
Bag Boy: The games will be won or lost much along party lines, like most legislation.
3. Corey Crawford is to the Blackhawks as ...
Bear Jordan: ... I am to picnics. You're a little scared, but deep down you'd miss me if I didn't show up.
Evan F. Moore: ... an engine is to a Chevy Caprice. You won't go anywhere without it.
Tracy Swartz: ... weather is to Chicago. Time for a turnaround. Freezing our bleepin' nuts off.
Jimmy Greenfield: ... cog is to machine. You think Crawford's not important? Wake. Up.
Bag Boy: You kind of hate him till you realize there is no one else, then you kind of love him. Huh?
4. What will U.S. Cellular Field's 100th anniversary celebration be like?
Bear Jordan: It will be impossible to tell because no one will go.
Evan F. Moore: Not bad. They can at least show the fans a World Series trophy.
Tracy Swartz: The Cubs will lose.
Jimmy Greenfield: It will coincide as the 47th anniversary of the day U.S. Cellular Field was torn down.
Bag Boy: The surrounding area known as "Comiskeyville," full of bars, restaurants and condos, will be hopping that day!
5. What would you do with a 400-pound Wrigley Field cake?
Bear Jordan: Look at me. I think that answers that question.
Evan F. Moore: Schedule a root canal beforehand. That's a whole lot of cake.
Tracy Swartz: Eat it, just like the Cubs.
Jimmy Greenfield: See if it can close. Can't do any worse than Veras, Strop, et al.
Bag Boy: Normally I'd eat it, but my current financial situation means a quick posting on E-bay. Highest bid takes it.
