At last, Cubs' Sveum utters something that's eminently quotable

Tiger Woods paired against Rory McIlroy in the singles matches on the final day of the Ryder Cup this month at Medinah is the wish of Mike Spellman.

Eyeballing? Eyeballing!

Finally, a quote to remember from Dale Sveum.

Urlacher on Sunday:

Should only be swatting pixies, not Colts.

Let the knee heal for crying out loud; you've got the Pack in Week 2.

The prediction:

Bears 138, Savannah State 3.

What?

The real prediction:

Bears 31, Colts 17.

Yeah, that's more like it.

BTW:

Poor Savannah State. A 67-point underdog last week to Oklahoma State and a 70-point dog against Florida State on Saturday.

These humiliating losses better be worth it for them.

The 'stache shows class:

The 2-3-4 hitters in your White Sox lineup: Flanders, Meathead and the Bandit.

Nah, it's Youks, Dunn and Paulie -- and what a cool tribute it is to the late Kevin Hickey.

Note to Ryder Cup captains:

Please, please, please pair Tiger against Rory in the singles matches on the final day of competition.

Everything but the white Bronco:

My MVP for live coverage of the post-verdict fiasco Thursday?

Channel 5's Kim Vadis.

Grace under pressure right there.

And the bronze goes to ... :

Lakers star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who finally was immortalized in bronze last week in Los Angeles.

Abdul-Jabbar's honor was followed shortly thereafter by a statue unveiling of Bob Uecker at Miller Park.

Yet here in Chicago:

Dennis Awtrey and Josh Lewin were overlooked once again.

Simply not fair.

Conventional wisdom:

One hour a night of coverage seems just about right.

Simple pleasure:

Hearing Buzz Kilman back on the air Thursday morning.

Best. Laugh. Ever.

Why is it?

The Detroit Tigers, but the Dee-troit Lions?

Oh, that's right -- thanks Coach!

Best news of the day:

Athletics pitcher Brandon McCarthy was alert Thursday after having surgery for a skull fracture and brain contusion caused by a line drive.

One absolutely frightening replay to watch.

Serena Williams (above):

In a word: unstoppable.

You make the call:

Now's your chance to get in on the other side of the horse racing game with news that the inaugural certificate program offered by the Racing Officials Accreditation Program (ROAP), designed to provide hands-on training to entry-level racing officials, is coming to Arlington Park on Sept. 28-29.

The positions to be offered will include horse identifier, paddock judge, patrol/placing judge, outrider, starter/assistant starter and clerk of scales.

Sounds interesting.

He said it:

"Rather than him sneaking around in the gallery, I want him to be seen and I want him to be in our team room and be hanging around and being a great influence."

-- U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III, on his preferred role for Michael Jordan at Medinah Country Club in three weeks.
