Live it up, Hawks fans. You get to make fun of Red Wings fans only twice a season now.
1. Let's have your best Red Wings trash talk.
|Twitter/Facebook: @JetSetVegas You guys are named after a brand of work boot.|
|Evan F. Moore: No postseason! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap!|
|Tracy Swartz: Detroit.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: "LOUD NOISES!" Also, "OVERUSED MOVIE REFERENCES!"|
|Bag Boy: Financially solvent yet?|
2. What's your Selection Sunday ritual?
|Twitter/Facebook: @KeithMAnderson Same as every Sunday. Figure out how to beat a hangover and locate my pants.|
|Evan F. Moore: Laughing at the possibility that my alma mater might be a sacrificial lamb to Duke or Kansas.|
|Tracy Swartz: Cheering on the Gators. Literally, no one can top.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: I slaughter live chickens and revive dead ones.|
|Bag Boy: 1) Watch Big Ten title game 2) Nap 3) Read brackets in next day's papers.|
3. How did Lovie Smith lure Josh McCown to the Buccaneers?
|Twitter/Facebook: Brian Thompson: Cronuts homie. Cronuts.|
|Evan F. Moore: He showed McCown pictures of Wednesday's snowfall -- and naked photos of Marc Trestman.|
|Tracy Swartz: With a warm embrace.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: The Bucs play in Florida so if it doesn't work out, he's already there to start his retirement.|
|Bag Boy: 10 million dollars plus the chance to die in obscurity. Who could resist?|
4. What does Lamarr Houston mean when he says: "The Monsters of the Midway are back"?
|Twitter/Facebook: @StanDeCwikielJr And they're funnier than ever in, "The Monsters of the Midway Go To Japan!"|
|Evan F. Moore: That Bears fans won't have to call for a search party for their linemen like they did for Peppers/McClellin last season.|
|Tracy Swartz: That he caught the Blackhawks game at Soldier Field. Finally, a championship team there.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: I think it means, and I might be overthinking this, that the Monsters of the Midway are back.|
|Bag Boy: He's being paid like a leader so I guess he's talking like one.|
5. A pitcher injuring himself stepping on a cactus is like ...
|Twitter/Facebook: Vince LiFonti: ... a newspaper reporter getting a paper cut.|
|Evan F. Moore: ... posting factually inaccurate "hockey players are tougher" memes. Makes no sense.|
|Tracy Swartz: ... a good excuse for needling.|
|Jimmy Greenfield: ... the opposite of an innocent cactus getting crushed by a really stupid pitcher.|
|Bag Boy: ... a GM being stung by a scorpion. That was last year.|
