The McCaskeys just don’t get it

By: Alex Patt It becomes more and more embarrassing to be a fan of the Chicago Bears every passing week. Every year I try to tell myself to not invest too much emotion into the Bears and keep my expectations at a minimum…and YET I find myself getting angry every Sunday from September through DecemberContinue reading “The McCaskeys just don’t get it”

The Chicago Blackhawks are in hell

By: Alex Patt On Tuesday night, I was sitting 14 rows from the ice at the United Center. The boos rained down from the stands as the clock ticked to zero to seal a 4-1 Blackhawks loss against the Islanders in their home opener. The Blackhawks fell to 0-3-1 and they have yet to haveContinue reading “The Chicago Blackhawks are in hell”

Missing the thrill of “Cubtober”

By: Alex Patt To quote Green Day, “Wake me up when September ends.” That is how I feel when it comes to the Chicago Cubs 2021 season. For the first time since 2014, the Cubs will finish with a losing record and will miss the postseason for the second time in the past three years.Continue reading “Missing the thrill of “Cubtober””

Early 2021 Chicago Bears Predictions

By: Alex Patt One more preseason game before the Chicago Bears kickoff the 2021 NFL season in Los Angeles. The Bears have a few bubble spots up for grabs, but overall we have a good idea of what the roster will look like. Like it or not, Andy Dalton is slotted to be QB1. TheContinue reading “Early 2021 Chicago Bears Predictions”

Cubs fans, we have to stay strong

By: Alex Patt Let’s be real, this is a tough time to be a Cubs fan. The team has been dismantled and what is left is mostly unrecognizable to the average baseball fan. Willson Contreras, Kyle Hendricks, Jason Heyward and the empty shell of Jake Arrieta are all that remain from the team that endedContinue reading “Cubs fans, we have to stay strong”

This week felt like the end of this era of Chicago Cubs baseball

By: Alex Patt June 22nd, the Chicago Cubs are tied with the Milwaukee Brewers for first place in the NL Central. They sport a +24 run differential and eight games above .500. The morning of July 5th, the Cubs return home from a 1-9 road trip and are 8.5 games back of the Brewers, sportContinue reading “This week felt like the end of this era of Chicago Cubs baseball”

Justin Fields is a Chicago Bear…and I feel very good

By: Alex Patt Far and away my favorite draft night is the NFL Draft. Regardless of what year it is, I always invest time into following it. This year was a weird year as a Chicago Bears fan. I had very little hope Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy would do something great, as I expectedContinue reading “Justin Fields is a Chicago Bear…and I feel very good”

I just need to rant about the Chicago Cubs…

[Warning: Takes on here can come off as overreacting or bold statements, but I am going to share anyway.] Trying to be rational about this team gets harder and harder by the day. At this point it feels like being rational is just admitting the “Golden Days” of the Chicago Cubs are gone. I trulyContinue reading “I just need to rant about the Chicago Cubs…”

Why this Chicago Cubs season will be emotional for me

By: Alex Patt The 2021 Chicago Cubs season will begin in less than two weeks, and for the first time a key member of my family won’t be around to watch it. My grandmother, one of the biggest Cubs fans ever, passed away on January 2nd after battling many health issues. For the first timeContinue reading “Why this Chicago Cubs season will be emotional for me”

Opinion: The Chicago Bears fanbase is slowly dying off

By: Alex Patt Being a Chicago Bears fan has not been particularly easy the past few decades. Outside a trip to the Super Bowl in 2006 and a few division titles, most of the football the Bears faithful has been subjected to has been mediocre at best. When you only make the playoffs six timesContinue reading “Opinion: The Chicago Bears fanbase is slowly dying off”
