What's that? A marquee boxing match between two big name fighters ended in a draw which will certainly lead to at least one more fight? I'm shocked, SHOCKED I tell you.

I had a rather decent sized bet on GGG that I was all ready to cash on my next trip to Vegas (well, still will, but just gave them an interest free loan) so that was cool and stuff.

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

And the scoring wasn't close; 118-110, 115-113, and 114-114. That's not suspicious at all

They only have one chance. That seems pretty desperate.

After the amount of crappy weather youth soccer games I've attended, I can't help thinking how awesome indoor soccer sounds.

as a kid I hated playing outdoor, and loved indoor. So much more fast paced and entertaining since there's essentially no out of bounds, unless the ball got stuck up on the stage or caught in the folded in bleachers.

He's excited because this year the games are at a place that has indoor turf instead of the old gym floor where he played last year.

Among the 4 major sports Chicago had 5 All-Star selections for this year. I believe Kane was the only starter. I feel like this is the lowest total in quite some time.
