I can’t believe Derrick Rose isn’t playing yet! The doctors cleared him weeks ago! Did you hear Dale Sveum may send Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo down to Iowa? Corey Crawford isn’t consistent enough to play between the pipes in the playoffs! After looking at the Bears schedule here in April, I can comfortably say that the Bears can go 10-6 under new head coach Marc Trestman, who I know nothing about.
These have been the go to phrases of every idiot meathead sitting at every corner of every bar in the city of Chicago. In this 24/7 sports world we live in, it is easy to get caught up in many ridiculous story lines and run with them. One can’t look at their Twitter feed without seeing some obnoxious tweet about someone they could never relate to. Or a story from a well-known sports writer chopping up a quote from a team manager to make it sound how he wants it to sound. Twitter is the best, and worst, thing to happen to professional sports.
I love how everyone has an opinion on whether or not Derrick Rose should be playing. Are you Derrick Rose? Did you tear your ACL in front of millions of people? Do you play for the Bulls? I’m gonna go out on a limb here and guess that the answer is no to all of those rhetorical questions. Since the answer is no, please stop talking. It’s not like the Bulls will do anything significant in the playoffs with a healthy Rose, anyway. Don’t get me wrong, I am the biggest Bulls supporter in the city of Chicago when it comes to the famous Bulls vs. Heat debate. But this season, as it stands, is not the Bulls’ season regardless of when Rose comes back.
As far as the old “Noah is playing through plantar faciitis, why can’t Rose come back? He’s cleared to play.” Plantar Faciitis is a bitch, but it ain’t a torn ACL. I won’t continue to argue with stupid.
Oh yeah, and this idiot.
Rizzo and Castro
Do you really think the Cubs would send down the faces of their franchise? The same two guys that are all over every marketing campaign out there? If you, for one second, took that seriously, call up your best friend and have him come over and knock some sense into you. Guess what? Young people make mistakes at their places of work.
These two young people just happen to play professional baseball in front of the whiniest fan base in the world. Every little mistake that is made is blown up and chopped up every way possible. What’s even funnier to me is when you have people who have never played the sport of baseball at a level higher than tee ball criticizing these saviors of the north side.
I don’t mean to go all Sean Salisbury on people, but I am sick of everyone acting like they are an expert of every sport out there. Here is a refreshing article that I want to read when the club is struggling.
Hey, all you “hockey experts” that started watching hockey in 2010: please tell me why Corey Crawford isn’t a good goalie. As of Tuesday, he has a record of 18-5-5 with a .923 save percentage and a goals against average of 2.03. For you dumbasses out there, that means he’s having a great year. Yeah, you could argue that Ray Emery is having a better season. But that doesn’t mean Corey Crawford “sucks,” as I see on Twitter and hear mentioned by Chicago radio hosts far too often.
The Blackhawks have an awesome problem here. Two really good goaltenders heading into the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Luckily, you don’t have to, or get to, decide who will get the nod. Leave that to the smartest mustache of all time, Joel Quenneville. Oh did I offend the Ditka-strokers out there? Move past the ’80s!
Oh yeah, and this idiot who somehow has a job in sports journalism.
You can’t predict a team’s record before the NFL draft or the team’s training camp any more than I can predict how many weeks prematurely you must’ve been born. I’m not arguing with stupid. Good day.
The fans and media in this town need to think before they tweet, speak or even write anything. There is a reason why the people that bitch and moan about the teams they “love” don’t work for those teams. Because you throw like a girl and were terrible at sports. Let’s pump the brakes Chicago, we will live longer for it.
