Canine Lines



Two and hello!
The Sox won Game 2 with an amazing comeback, and Tony Graffanino's error certainly helped. Too cruel to say that even Bill Buckner could have made that play? Judges ruling: No way, clean hit. Play on.
Smoke signals
Michael Jordan was at the game up in a luxury suite. Usually, when we've seen MJ puffing on a stogie, the city's planning a massive party. See, now those were the days.
Riddle me this
What do you call a Cubs fan that now cheers for the Sox? Possible answer: 1) Converted, 2) lame, or 3) drunk.
Back it up
Blackhawks opened Wednesday. The Blackhawks? Don't give me that look. They're a hockey team. Hockey? Oh you son of a ...
Let's try again
Speaking of the NHL, the average ticket price dropped 7.5 percent to $41.19. OH, COME ON, PRETEND TO CARE A LITTLE!
Disc trouble
By signing 41-year-old QB Vinny Testaverde, the Jets just became my pick to win the NFL shuffleboard league title.
Youth oriented
The Texas Rangers hired a 28-year-old GM. If you're under 28, this should inspire you. If you're older, this should pretty much crush your soul.
Sweet 16
That was out of line, I'm sorry. In other news, golfer Michelle Wie turned pro. She's 15. She'll make about $10 million in endorsements in 2006. How's that soul doing now?
Early reviews are in
Dr. Phil and Shaq are chained together for a scene in "Scary Movie 4." And that sentence right there might be the funniest part of the whole picture.

My feelings on the Red Eye and Red Streak are well-documented here.

Both the Tribune and Sun Times do it to keep Metro out. Metro has hurt subway readers in Philly, Toronto, Boston and others.

A lot of people under 30 don't read real newspapers

The Red Eye is free... so I take it every morning when I board the CTA. If they didn't hand it out I certainly wouldn't pay for it; but its entertaining enough for the 20 minutes.

I read the papers online later on in the day.

It's a rag and you know it. I'd rather read a Cubs Media Guide.

I know. What bothers me is that the "solution" to this appears to be handing them the free equivalent of the "Us Magazine" version of their newspapers, with flashy photos of Jennifer Lopez or some such person on the front.

Or, as some people like to call it, The Chicago Tribune Sports Section.

Red Eye = Chicago Tribune = WGN Radio = WGN T.V. = CLTV = Chicago Magazine = Owns the Cubs. Red Eye is good for lining you bird cage, or picking up doggy poo.

It is crap. I mainly just flip to the sports and then the pages about the bars; then its pretty much the end of my ride.

I know how many of you feel about the Trib and I agree, but I've certainly enjoyed picking up both here in Champaign. I want to fill a rubber made with as much October press as I can. It's also "funny" how the trib is .75 and Suntimes reamins the same.50 as it is in the city...

Maybe that's a surcharge to help fund the Cubs' bloated payroll.

It was part of the contract. Article VII I believe.
