Re: Week 17: Bears @ Vikings Sunday, 3:25 on Fox

It's believed to be Sunday 1pm start. Reports came out that FOX will be in Chicago for the early game Sunday. I hope so. Joe Buck mentioned he assumed he would do Bears-Eagles. If I had to guess Saturday 3pm Colts/Titans vs Houston Saturday 7pm. Seattle vs Dallas Sunday noon Eagles vs Bears Sunday ...

Re: homophobe, incoming

wonder who claimed Harper... anywho, I'd have serious mixed feelings about this. I hate it if it's the end of Bote. I dislike it if it pushes Russell to the bench. I am indifferent if he becomes worlds series hero. basically I hate him so whatever My guess would be Russell to the DL. Mix and match ...

Another thing in all this that amazes me, and it's not just MLB it's all the major sports, is that I don't get why former players lead the union (in more than a figurehead role).
