    By Bruce Levine WRIGLEY FIELD (CBS) — The Cubs keep defying the odds by winning one-run ball games. Kris Bryant defied gravity with a home run off of the top of the new video board that is fifty feet above the bleachers. Watching the Cubs win their 13th out of 23 one-run games was magical enough for one evening as Addison Russell doubled with two outs in the ninth inning for the game winner. Outstanding defense and gutty base running, kept the Cubs in the game with arguably the best team in the National League. “Joe (Maddon) stresses the defense,” said the 21-year-old…

    Photographs can do a number of things. They can help frame a news story or put it into better context. They can convey details and nuances of a story that might otherwise be lost. But if we don’t know all the facts surrounding a photograph, some things are left open to interpretation. It is why news organizations are careful in considering the images they run and try as hard as possible to detail what is being displayed. Today on Page 18 and in digital editions, we ran a picture and a story about a shocking photograph that the Chicago Police Department didn’t want anyone to see. It…

It’s called misophonia. More doctors are recognizing it and more patients are being diagnosed.

I feel like I have to dig too much in order to listen to the music or find what I was really looking for (aside from hillydilly.com, which rocks from its song selection to layout.) With the launch of Jay-Z’s subscription-based music streaming service Tidal, it’s interesting (and a little painful) to consider how complicated music streaming has become.  The cheapest option on Tidal, for example, is $9.99 a month. But staying updated on music doesn’t have to have a huge price tag. That’s why I find most of my music through audiovisual…

Much has been said about the inconsistency of this year’s playoff run. One game looks dominant. The next flat. This was absolutely the case as the Lightning have now earned the chance to seal the series up at home. Lost in the never ending tug-a-war series is the bounce back by the opposing goalies.

    26 May 2015 | 7:20 am
    The latest Bulls coaching rumors from the weekend, reported by Adrian Wojnarowski as well as Marc Stein, is that the Bulls are playing the waiting game when it comes to their current coach. What both reporters are 'hearing' is that the Bulls aren't confident another team will offer compensation to hire Thibs from them (and really, why would they), and thus they'll simply wait until all of the remaining coaching vacancies are filled before outright firing him. So, like...out of spite? Maybe! The Orlando Magic job is reportedly close to being filled by old friend Scott Skiles, and the only…

So what's the update with Tom Thibodeau? Since a flurry of rumors at the end of the season, nothing concrete. In fact, we're seemingly only getting extremely fringe-y reports about Thibs and a potential new coach. Like this guy saying Fred Hoiberg would take the Bulls job, and this dude saying the Lakers are going after Thibs. These reports were 'ran with', but not very far.

    So, yeah, Niko kinda stunk up the joint in the playoffs. Maybe a coach with a modern offense could've mitigated that? I remember October 6th like it was yesterday. On the NBA calendar, early October can only signify one thing: preseason. Why do I remember a preseason game so vividly? It was the first time I watched Nikola Mirotic in a Bulls uniform, and it only took me that one game to realize that Niko belonged. Some rookies take time to develop (see: McDermott, Doug). Other rookies need proper grooming to -- hopefully, one day -- fully develop (see: Snell, Tony). But even upon first glance,…

    The Bulls have a strong foundation moving forward. What should we make of it? Playoff basketball is an emotionally taxing, anxious investment as is, but the Bulls and Cavaliers seemed to push beyond even the common threshold of tension for their six games in the Eastern Conference semifinals. I think it was because that series had something like a dueling dichotomy of torture on each side: Chicagoans thought they deserved to win because LeBron James always kicks their ass in the playoffs; Clevelanders thought they deserved to win because Michael Jordan used to always kick their ass in the…

    INDEPENDENCE (92.3 The Fan) – When LeBron James is on the road in the playoffs he prefers to channel his inner Simon and Garfunkel. To James, when he is away from home, there is no sweeter sound than the sound of silence. “I like playing on the road more than home,” James said. “To be ale to silence a road crowd is the ultimate for me.” If the Cavaliers are to win the Eastern Conference and advance to their second NBA Finals in 8 years, they will have to win in Atlanta, not once but maybe twice. The Cavs are 4-1 away from home in the playoffs so far. They were…

    The ONLY thing I’m mad about this video is the fact that Beyonce is wearing a Chicago Bulls logo’d bathing suit instead of a HOUSTON ROCKETS logo! Besides that, Bey along with new partner in crime Nicki Minaj just released the new video for their song “Feelin Myself” through Jay Z‘s new Tidal streaming service. The video release from the ladies is one way to get more people to sign up for the service, which is the only place you can see the whole thing.

  • Thibodeau Should Remain with Bulls

    Scott D. Mikulski
    19 May 2015 | 10:49 am
    A little more than twelve hours after the Cleveland Cavaliers bounced the Chicago Bulls from the Eastern Conference Semifinals, rumors were already circulating that Bulls’ coach Tom Thibodeau will be relieved of his coaching duties despite having two more years remaining on his contract. This would be a terrible mistake by the Bulls’ organization and Thibodeau will more than likely be snapped up by the New Orleans Pelicans or Orlando Magic. Thibodeau and Bulls’ management reportedly have been at odds all season and a parting of ways is likely. However, Thibodeau has the…

    Here we are again. Another season in the books and another season a team piloted by Lebron James takes the Bulls out of the playoffs. That makes 4 times in the last 6 seasons. The other two, we were eliminated by Washington and Philadelphia. Needless to say, every season in recent history has ended in extreme disappointment for the Bulls. So what needs to happen this offseason? Well lots. I’ll start at the top. Thibs is first out the door. I thought that should have happened on Friday morning, or Thursday evening even. Understandably, the Bulls plan to keep Thibs around until they find…

Holliday matched former teammate Albert Pujols in 2008 for the longest on-base streak since Derek Jeter's…

The Ducks goalie let Teuvo Teravainen's harmless little shot from the high slot slip under his arm for one goal. He dropped his stick on one side of the net and then failed to get over to other side well enough to stop Brent Seabrook's tough angle chance for the second. And if we thought that was a tough angle . . . there was the Hawks' final goal of the evening, which Jonathan Toews actually shot from an inch behind the goal line but managed to bank it into the net off Andersen's skate with 37 seconds…

Sure, the Cubs are still in this mother, but it's not gonna be simply a case of riding a sweet wave to the playoffs - even if you are looking at this season in Joe Maddon-Colored Glasses.

So in this post, I’ll talk about the good/bad/ugly of the three month journey to Southeast Asia and sojourn to Australia. The Good Food! Yes, despite having food poisoning. I loved a lot of what I ate while gone. Lots of carbs, but also, a lot of just delicious stuff.

I needed perspective and a change of scenery. And holy f*ck did I get both. Coincidentally, five years ago this week was my first solo vacation ever, in New Orleans. And just over four years ago I started solo traveling overseas w/a trip to Italy. It’s funny how things come full circle. I’m thinking through how…
