    But, if he is to be replaced by Glennon at more money than Cutler would have made, I'll wonder if Dr. Gordon is the Bears new GM.

    I didn't know that Chuck Berry died today, he was 90. Matter of fact, I didn't know Chuck Berry was alive yesterday.

    Marvin will never die.

    The kids at Sigma Chi called me Chuck back in the day. Chuck Burket. Not certain why, but it seems like my time is limited around here.

During his term, the village board made headlines when it adopted an ordinance that threatened parents with arrest for allowing teenage drinking on their property."

    Lou Gehrig is back. So refreshing to post good news here for once, reverse the trend...hoping we have more of these. Plus side is he is back, down side is ALS will have to be renamed.

    This boy’s mother believes he’s Lou Gehrig reincarnated (link) Sports Illustrated
    "Lou Gehrig died in 1941. But what if he came back? Cathy Byrd believes that her son, Christian Haupt, is the reincarnated spirit of Gehrig. No, seriously.

    Byrd wrote a book, The Boy Who Knew Too Much, laying out the case for why her son batted cleanup behind Babe Ruth. The evidence includes Christian, at the age of two, telling his mom “I used to be a tall baseball player.” Is that a toddler just talking nonsense as he experiments with language or did he really mean to say “I won the MVP award in 1926”? Byrd also writes that Christian told her of traveling to hotels by train and recalled a falling out between Ruth and Gehrig.

    But wait, it gets better..."

    Detroit Red Wings playoff streak of 25 years...amazing, amazing. Not one ever to chant "Detroit Sucks" cause they didn't...same as those who say Patriots suck, Cardinals or Yankees suck FWIW. Just look at the banners.

    I don't think there'd be any debate if we chant "Cardinal fans suck!" Is that acceptable?
