Isler’s reign is in its final days, with the next woman to wear the crown to be selected Jan. 25 in Miami.

full story »Ron Onesti: The ‘Yankee Clipper’ turns 100Just a few weeks ago, Yankee legend Joe DiMaggio would have turned 100 years old. I know when it came to memorializing this legendary figure, it was the fans from Chicago who stepped up.

full story »Ron Onesti: The Zamboni … still as smooth as everI am a huge Chicago sports fan, really loving all the excitement and pride that goes along with it. One of my particular favorite experiences is to visit the boys on the ice, my Chicago Blackhawks. Another unsung hero is something that really goes unnoticed, while at the same time is a focal point of the experience: the ice-smoothing machine known as the Zamboni.
