Chicago on an upswing

Chicago sports is on an upswing, despite the best efforts of some running backs.

One, the Cubs are a major league best 27-8 at the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field at the Corner of Clark and Addison.
Two, the Sox lead the AL Central by over six games over the Twins (aka the Piranhas) and by over seven over the Cleveland Indians.
Three, last night, the Chicago Wolves beat the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Penguins 5-2 to win the Calder Cup, the Stanley Cup of the AHL, a triple A hockey league. I saw the Wolves crush the Icehogs over Thanksgiving Weekend and thought that they had a chance to go a long way. Wolves are a good team. Now if the Blackhawks can start winning then we'd have something going.

Also, the Chicago Rush (arena football team) have clinched their division and are going to the AFL playoffs again. They won the AFL title in 2006, not as impressive as Da Bearss, but still quite good.

Vinny Del Negro was hired by the Bulls. Give Pax 2 months and he can find you a coach.
