  • Spellman Scorecard: Bears don’t know how good they have it Nov 20, 2014 8:32 PM
    You’d think Bears players would want to play as hard as they possibly can for Marc Trestman because I’m pretty sure they don’t know how good they have it right now.

     
  • Spellman Bites: Yeah, Bears won the game, but ... Nov 16, 2014 8:27 PM
    Yeah they finally won at home. Yeah they beat a (weak) division foe. Yeah the defense didn’t give up 50 points.But in the big picture, the win doesn’t mean a thing except a lower spot in the draft.

     
  • These managers and coaches can carve up opponents Nov 7, 2014 12:17 PM
    If there were separate Mount Rushmores for active managers/coaches in each of the four major sports leagues, I think it’s fair to say that Chicago right now would be represented on three of them by Tom Thibodeau, Joel Quenneville and Joe Maddon.

     
  • Spellman’s Scorecard: Maddon hiring will be a real treat Oct 30, 2014 9:28 PM
    The main reason I’m excited about the anticipated arrival of Joe Maddon is that he’s universally respected. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a guy like that on the North Side. A real long time.

     
  • Bears Bites: Raise the white flag Oct 26, 2014 6:25 PM
    Five of the Bears’ last seven games are at home. That could mean an awful lot of empty seats at Soldier Field. Not only do the Bears get shellacked by the Pats, now they have the bye week to soak it all in … and then get to travel to Green Bay the following week. Good times.

     
  • Not much ‘zazz’ at Wrigley since McDonough left Oct 24, 2014 8:17 AM
    Doesn’t it seem like there’s been something missing around Wrigley Field for quite a while? And I’m not talking wins. Or even the bleachers.

     
  • Bears Bites: Feels like the season’s over Oct 19, 2014 8:39 PM
    Home is where the heartache is for the Bears, whose season isn't over — but it sure feels that way after just seven games, doesn't it? Mike Spellman takes a look at Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

     
  • Pieces all in place for Hawks practice facility near UC Oct 9, 2014 9:33 PM
    A long 3-pointer from the Bulls new practice digs sits a lovely parking lot (which I adore for its convenience), but which I’m thinking will eventually become home to a brand-new, sparkly Blackhawks practice facility. And it should.

     
  • Bears Bites: Not many reasons to smile Sep 28, 2014 4:12 PM
    After starting out the season 1-2, Rodgers told freaked-out Packers fans to chillax. If Jay Cutler tried to do the same thing this week after a 2-2 start, how do you think Bears Nation would respond? Think we all know the answer.

     
  • Konerko’s big day deserves a Sox sellout Sep 26, 2014 6:01 AM
    Here's hoping Paul Konerko gets the type of send-off he deserves. His big day, the Bears-Packers and the Ryder Cup make for quite the weekend.

     
  • Bears Bites: Half the defense hurt but still an impressive win Sep 23, 2014 5:53 AM
    Playing without about half your defense. On the road again, this time on the opposite coast and in prime time. To slog out this kind of win? In a word: Impressive.

     
  • Could Niners’ lavish pregame festivities give Bears an edge? Sep 12, 2014 5:30 AM
    Well, it seems like the consensus final score for Sunday night’s game is somewhere in the vicinity of 49ers 38, Bears 13. Not so sure about that.

     
  • Spellman’s Scorecard: My math says 10-6 for Bears Sep 4, 2014 10:18 PM
    If my math doesn't fail me, and it hasn't in more than three days, the Bears will go 10-6 and be playoff-bound.

     
  • Mercifully, NFL preseason comes to an end Aug 29, 2014 9:09 AM
    Even though it was a meaningless preseason game, we still have to talk about it - right? I guess, but we'll keep it short and sweet.

     
  • Spellman’s Scorecard: Yes, it’s just preseason, but still ... Aug 22, 2014 6:15 AM
    It's the Bears' biggest game of the preseason. But it still won't mean much once the regular season rolls around.

     
  • Spellman: My Million pick rhymes with ‘Chagician’ Aug 15, 2014 6:58 PM
    Time to soak in another Million Week. Oh, and other stuff this week in Spellman's Scorecard.

     
  • Magician looks to do the trick with win in Million Aug 13, 2014 9:19 PM
    A compact field of seven horses entered for Saturday's showcase event of the day — the 32nd running of the Arlington Million — where Aiden O’Brien trainee Magician, the 2013 Breeders’ Cup Turf champion, has been installed as the 7-5 morning-line favorite.

     
  • Spellman’s Scorecard: What’s not to like about Trestman? Aug 8, 2014 5:30 AM
    It's hard not to be a fan of Bears coach Marc Trestman. Unless of course he fails to take them to the promised land.

     
  • Among trade deadline days, MLB is king Jul 31, 2014 11:51 PM
    What a week it’s been for baseball, huh? The weekend in Cooperstown, the heartwarming response to the announcement in L.A. that the incomparable Vin Scully would return for another year, and then gets capped off with a great day of deadline deals. Better soak it in though, because football is right around the corner.

     
  • Spellman’s Scorecard: Well wishes for Wayne Catalano Jul 25, 2014 3:10 PM
    A few days after winning yet another big race at Arlington International, trainer Wayne Catalano is in a fight for his life.
