Dan McNeil previously had been muzzled for much of his two-decade plus sports talk radio career when it came to discussing his passion, hockey. The WSCR-AM 670 late morning host even received an edict once when the team was in a Stanley Cup Final....
If anybody in the sports observation business ever tells you he or she doesn't take enormous joy in being right, they're lying. Everybody with a laptop or a microphone relishes every opportunity to spike the ball after a prediction — be it on a...
I agree with the adage that suggests "luck is where hard work meets opportunity." It was coined by a first-century Roman philosopher named Seneca, but I always attribute it to former Blackhawk Richie Preston. It's more colorful that way and it's a way...
Of course Phil Emery and Lovie Smith denied they have been knocking knees over a fresh contract for the coach. There's no upside for either of them if they indicate otherwise. If they're being truthful and Emery does wait until after the season for such...

It became obvious several years ago that when the final chapter of the Kerry Wood story was written, it wasn't going to have a happy ending. An ugly last act, however, could have been avoided. I'm not going to blame Wood. Nor will I point the finger at...

With each New Year there arrives the chance to clear the slate and begin anew. I was delighted the Bears did that Monday when they showed Lovie Smith the door. It made for a more celebratory Rockin' Bears New Year's Eve than the Fog Bowl victory over...
In less than three weeks, there will be answers to all the questions being debated around water coolers from Milwaukee to Merrillville. Many words have been devoted to Lovie Smith's future and the power structure in Lake Forest since the Bears tumbled...
I'm relieved the Bears have concluded the junior varsity portion of their schedule and finally have a worthy opponent Sunday night at Soldier Field. The comedy of errors in Nashville was entertaining, but it's time for a 15-round bout between two...
