This coming October (maybe). </purple>

I can't wait to see how the Bowman lapdogs in the press put all the blame on Dale Tallon.

Tallon put a winner on the ice and brought the first championship to Chicago. He spent the coin necessary to get it done. Then the NHL changed the rules and Bowman had to get rid of all the good players. So now this team is Bowman's team. He has to take the blame for the results. Tallon shouldnt be blamed for Bowman's assembled talent.

The NHL's rules have been the same since the lockout.  The NHL didn't change the rules.

Bowman had to get rid of players, so he got rid of "role" players... the guys like Ladd.

The difference between last year's team and this year's team is the bottom 2 lines of forwards.  Top 2 lines are basically the same as last year, but Vancouver can match up their top D against them.  Last year, any 4 of the 'Hawks' lines could've hurt you, so opposing teams didn't have as much leeway to match up against guys like Kane and Toews.

From a Yahoo story.  "They've been outhit, outscored and outmatched in a lopsided series"

Well yeah, they're down 3-0 so I would guess they've been outscored.  And they've been outhit but the series has been far from lopsided.  other than the first period in game one, it's been a tight series

Gotta agree with Shoe here.  They're losing, but it's hardly a lopsided series.  It's true the Hawks don't have the same depth as last year -- losing Ladd, Byfuglien, and Versteeg, those guys were solid contributers -- but the real difference in the series is Luongo.  He's stopping shots that seem like they'd have gone in last year.  Vancouver is easily the better team, so I'm pretty impressed that the Hawks have stuck with them as much as they have.  I'd still like to avoid getting swept though....

if this team has any balls, they win tonite.  defending champs, at home, about to be swept, the hit on Seabrook.  I'd like to see Kane and Toews leave it all out there

Bears to open vs. Falcons, visit Packers on Christmas

Brad Biggs/Tribune reporter

4:57 p.m. CDT, April 19, 2011


In a year in which the Chicago Bears are scheduled to travel to London for their first-ever regular season game in Europe, the team has four consecutive games vs. AFC West opponents and closes with division rivals Green Bay and Minnesota.

The NFL will release the 2011 schedule at 6 p.m. but an advanced look at the schedule provided to the Tribune shows they open the season at Soldier Field Sept. 11 against the Atlanta Falcons in a matchup of division champions from last season. It marks only the fourth time in 12 years the Bears will open at home.

They will then travel to New Orleans in Week 2 and return home to host the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers in Week 3. Former Bears linebacker and defensive coordinator Ron Rivera will bring in his Carolina Panthers for a visit in Week 4.

The Bears then play at Detroit on Monday, Oct. 10 on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” the first prime time appearance for the Lions since Week 3 of the 2001 season. That game is followed by another prime time appearance for the Bears as they will host Minnesota on Oct. 16 in NBC’s national broadcast. That gives the team a home game before the Oct. 23 game vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at London’s Wembley Stadium.

Following the trip to England, the Bears are off on the weekend of Oct. 30. The Bears play the Eagles on “Monday Night Football” on Nov. 7. Then, they host the Lions Nov. 13 before a string of four straight games vs. the AFC – vs. San Diego, at Oakland, vs. Kansas City and at Denver in Week 14 in quarterback Jay Cutler’s first regular season game there since the trade.

The Bears host Seattle in Week 15 and close out at Green Bay on NBC in prime time on Dec. 25 and at Minnesota Jan. 1.

The NFL’s current labor dispute leaves football hanging in the balance. The league announced if an agreement is not reached by Aug. 1 the game in London will be moved to Tampa and the Bucs’ Raymond James Stadium.

Week 2 at New Orleans

Week 3 GREEN BAY

Week 4 CAROLINA

Week 5 at Detroit

Week 6 MINNESOTA

Week 7 vs. Tampa Bay at London

Week 8 OFF

Week 9 at Philadelphia

He's likely not there yet. And may he never be. JohnJeter and Mrs. JohnJeter are still at it with the mocking-most-everything-on-TV-and-disliking-most-people-in-real-life banter.  Bon temps.

I didn't know that the Duke and Duchess of Windsor mocked stuff on TV and disliked most people. I'm kind of surprised they watch much TV.

I went to the Sharks - Kings hockey game last night.  It was a nice diversion from staying home and watching the Sox play.

I'll bet they did.  I'll bet that they sat around in their monogrammed robes in their filthy hotel room at the Plaza, puffing on cigs, mocking "Gilligan's Island."

for JoeyC:




The 2011 U.S. Men's National Under-18 Team won its third straight gold medal at the IIHF World Men's Under-18 Championship in Crimmitschau, Germany.

A player from the western suburbs (Robbie Russo of Westmont, IL) was Team USA's captain.
