There are no other good internet providers in my area for some reason. AT&T is but all reviews say it sucks in my town. I could just stick with them for internet, but I haven't pulled the trigger yet.


are you still in the city? RCN has given me great (fast AF) service for 3-4 years now.


No, Western Burbs now. Yeah I used to have RCN before I moved, they were pretty solid.

I haven't had ATT in Wheaton yet (only Comcast since we moved here), but my previous experience with ATT internet in the Chicago burbs is that it sucks and is way slower and more spotty than Comcast, which I have not had an issue with (other than paying way too much).

Comcast is only dropping it in states without B1G teams.

Oh Grobber




For those too lazy to listen: Someone texted Grobber last night suggesting that the Bears draft Bobby Boucher from South Eastern Louisiana State University, and he basically discussed the possibility on air for a few minutes. The clip only has a couple of seconds but still funny.

More Score changes. Apparently Hanley's contract isn't being renewed after this month.

David Haugh may be in line to replace him.

Not a huge Hanley fan, but Haugh is worse. Mully and Hanley have had great ratings and Hanley was with the Score since ‘92 so I’m surprised.

Mike North appears to have deleted his twitter page rather than going back and scrub out problematic tweets.

Not so much an outcry over old tweets as much as just knowledge of all of his tweets.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

David Haugh is Hanley's replacement on the Score morning show. Hanley was good but not great, but him and Mully had great ratings. One idea as to why there have been so many changes at 670 is that Jimmy deCastro now runs CBS Chicago radio stations. He was in charge of the debacle that was 87.7 The Game a few years back. He wants to show the radio world that he knows what he's doing this time around by making changes at the Score. I don't know why deCastro deserved the chance.
