    By Jay Zawaski- (CBS) On Thursday night, the Blackhawks announced that they had traded defenseman Adam Clendening to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for 18-year old Swedish defenseman Gustav Forsling, who has experience with his junior national team and most recently has compiled five points in 35 games for Linkoping of the Swedish Hockey League. I know what you’re thinking. Why would the Blackhawks trade a young, NHL-ready defenseman for a defenseman who is two or three years away from getting a shot in Chicago? This is a fair question. After all, Clendening was one of the prime…

  • Bulls vs. Lakers final score: Chicago hilariously loses to Los Angeles in double overtime, 123-116

    29 Jan 2015 | 10:47 pm
    Too predictable. The Bulls ended the Warriors' 19-game home winning streak on Tuesday. The Bulls ended the Lakers' nine-game losing streak on Thursday. This was probably too predictable, but still shocking to watch play out. And as Charles Barkley put it on the TNT postgame show, "This was the worst double-overtime game I've ever seen." The Bulls came out and played like absolute garbage against the tanking Lakers, but they still almost pulled a win out of their ass because the Lakers are tanking. Los Angeles led by nine points late in regulation before wilting under Chicago's full court…

Thus far it's been pretty exclusively either 'fringe media', an oft-vocal Thibs supporter, or Joe Cowley braying on virtual street corners wishing he had a blog*, but now we have something legitimate from KC Johnson of the Tribune (via). despite last week's team meeting instead of a practice, Thibodeau isn't going to change, even while the speculation about his long-term future with the Bulls…

Any official with even an once of empathy would have stopped the fight before it started. Consider: The Warriors had not lost to an Eastern Conference team all season.

I suppose the grit required to even stay in the game early means that Thibs still has this team Thibs'n, but outside of 'fringe' media that wasn't really being questioned. But while there's nothing too spectacular from Joakim Noah in the above clip, what hopefully turns out to be the most important takeaway from this win is that he's back on track.

  • Watch Steph Curry Throw Half Court Alley-Oop Off A Touch Pass

    27 Jan 2015 | 9:00 pm
    Steph Curry and Klay Thompson are seriously playing with the game sliders turned all the way up. In fact, Golden State’s whole squad is playing at a ridiculous level right now. Watch as they transition from defense to offense with a fast break that includes the ball only touching the floor once and barely touching Curry’s hands long enough for him to send one up for Harrison Barnes. Early in the third, GSW leads Chicago 60-53.

Let’s see where each team stands: Biggest Riser: Charlotte Hornets +6 Biggest Faller: Denver Nuggets -5 1.)Atlanta Hawks (LW: 2)  Winners of 16 straight games the Hawks are legit contenders. Jeff Teague, Al Horford and Paul Millsap are playing like great this season and I would not be surprised if they all make the All-Star team this year. The reason why I gave the Hawks the nod over the Warriors for the top spot is because of the fact they have no lost yet in the month of…

The league is littered with international talent, as players from around the world are welcome to compete against the most talented players in the world. The league has advertised its “Noche Latina,” alternate jerseys since the 2006-07 season (www.nba.com), and this year it has increased its international reach across the Pacific. The NBA’s newest addition to international heritage is its “Chinese New Year” alternate uniforms. Tim Duncan, San Antonio “Noche Latina”…

    (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh) Chicago Bulls guard Jimmy Butler is recognized as one of the best players in the NBA. He’s fifth in the Eastern Conference All-Star guard votes (455,756) and averaging a career best 20.1 points, 6 rebounds and 3.3 assists. Although many fans know Butler for his outstanding play this season, many might not know that he had to overcome a lot of adversity to reach the NBA. “My whole life, people have doubted me,” Butler said to ESPN reporter Chad Ford in 2011. “My mom did. People told me in high school I’m too short and not fast enough to…

    Here's an interesting idea to help pick up the pace of baseball games. Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal writes of a proposal made at the general managers' meetings last fall to speed up games by requiring a relief pitcher to face more than one batter -- perhaps as many as three. Oh, I know what you're saying. Blasphemy! Don't mess with baseball! It's perfect the way it is! Now, take a look at which wide-eyed radical executive made this proposal: Cubs president Theo Epstein floated such a possibility at the general managers’ meetings in November during a gathering of GMs and Major League Baseball…

    In which I ask you to contemplate the return of the slugger. Well, this is complicated. Had the PED era not been what it turned out to be, had Sammy Sosa and others put up the numbers they did and been viewed as "clean," Sammy and his contemporaries (Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds and others) would now be hailed as among the greatest players in baseball history and would likely all be already enshrined in the Hall of Fame, or be close to being so honored. It's not that simple, of course. I'm not here to make the argument on either side of the players who have either admitted PED use or who have…

    This is just for fun. The correct answer, of course, to the question posed in the headline to this article is, "It doesn't matter!" Because after 70 years of not even getting to the World Series, we as Cubs fans will be thrilled to get there and whoever the opponent is, we will of course hope the Cubs go on to win the Series and become champions. Thinking random thoughts about this the other day, though, I wondered if any of you have a preference to the team you'd like to see the Cubs face in the first Fall Classic they're in since 1945.

"An AP review of state payroll records found nine of ten top administrative posts paying more under Rauner, who took office earlier this month. On an annual basis, those Rauner staffers will make more than the equivalent Quinn staffers by nearly 36 percent, or roughly $380,000."

Credibility with who? Oh, right, the media. See, a rich person is instantly credible no matter how wacky, uninformed, inexperienced or unknown. A person of ordinary wealth with a world of experience, knowledge and ideas is not instantly credible, and will, in fact, find it hard to become credible because, without a bushelful of money, the media won't be interested.

    Facebook today unveiled Place Tips, an obvious competitor to Foursquare’s own Tips feature, which will provide those who opt-in a variety of information & content about places they visit. In addition to reviews & photos from those in your network who have visited in the past, Place Tips will pull information from the business’ own Facebook page, including recent posts. Image via Facebook The only real difference between the two ‘tips’ features, from the onset, seems to really only be that while Foursquare pulls content from anyone, Facebook stays within your…

    Though one of the major topics at Super Bowl 49 this Sunday will be the absurdity that will forever be known as “deflategate“, the big game, every year, always is remembered for two things: football (of course) and commercials. For the fourth year, Marketing Land will be tracking & reporting on all of the hashtags utilized by brands in their Super Bowl commercials. Appropriately referred to as ‘HashtagBowl‘, 2015 should see a continuance in the rise of hashtag use — Marketing Land reported a 100% growth between 2012-13, up from 25% to over 50%. …

    22 Jan 2015 | 12:24 pm
    This site, in general, has a theme: I try to write mostly about digital marketing, tech, entertainment….sports….Chicago stuff…..video ga — ok, OK; so there is no real consistent thread here (despite my half-hearted efforts to the contrary). I write about things that interest me; and, at times, those interests get a bit outside of this blog’s intended scope. Such is the case now. Earlier this week — home, sick with a mild touch of the flu — I stumbled upon a link on the Facepages to a clickbait post about 10 unexplained photos or some weird…

    When Google announced late last week that it would be shuttering the Glass Explorer Program, the tech world exploded with premature obituaries for the infamous devices, as some assumed this meant the end for the company’s controversial wearables. Not so fast… While Google is cutting off v1.0 sales of Glass — like it or not — the company isn’t calling it quits on its eyepiece wearables quite yet. Image via USA Today In addition to Google’s Glass at Work program, which will reportedly continue to thrive, the company itself said that it is working on future…
