Sports Is Good, Y’All!

Hello, sports fans! Welcome to your daily dose of sports news and commentary from Clarks Street Sports!

Baseball

Air Soriano

Air Soriano

Despite the alarming lack of enthusiasm coming from the world of baseball, there sure is a lot of news coming out of the North Side. First, and most pressing, is that the City Council will decide on the final approval for the renovations scheduled for Wrigley Field. If this passes, and it looks like it will, a planned five year reconstruction of Wrigley will begin this fall. Only the two outfield signs, the jumbotron scoreboard in left field and the see-through sign in right field, are approved so as not to obstruct the view from the rooftops as there is another decade left on the rooftop contract. Rahm Emanuel’s proposed pedestrian footbridge over Clark Street has been “deferred indefinitely” and any other renovations will be discussed within the Wrigleyville community between residents, the Cubs owners, and the rooftop businesses, Emanuel hopes. This is indeed a sad day for those pushing to keep the historic landmark preserved.

On the heels of Matt Garza’s trade comes word that Alfonso Soriano will also be traded. Soriano is currently in discussion with Theo Epstein about his trade destinations and waiving his no-trade rights. Soriano has name-dropped the New York Yankees as his desired destination, but Epstein says there is nothing solid coming from New York as of yet. Soriano said, “[The Yankees] always make the playoffs no matter what team they have, no matter what pitching they got. They find a way.” Clearly Soriano wants to be on a team that will showcase him and Epstein is itching to restructure the entire team, disregarding fan favoritism of players and the class of players that were brought on in the 2006-2007 spending spree.

Junior Lake is killing it, y'all

Junior Lake is killing it, y’all

Junior Lake represents the new class of Cubs being molded to focus on becoming a team worthy of playing in an expensive renovated ballpark that is irritating half of the city of Chicago. He went 3-for-5 with a homerun against the Diamondbacks. Tuesday night’s game against the Diamondbacks found the Cubs reacting with flared tempers and childish outbursts that resulted in a 4-10 loss. Sveum was ejected in the third inning after being vocal about believing that the umpire was baiting a conflict with Cody Ransom after he flung his bat after being struckout. This was Sveum’s fourth ejection this season. Ransom also threw his helmet after lining out with bases loaded. Anthony Rizzo tossed his bat after a painful strikeout as well. As the Cubs rebuild the stadium, it is clear that they are incredibly busy rebuilding the team and the team dynamic.

Basketball

Goodbye, Malcolm

The Bulls are hoping that waiving Malcolm Thomas will give their roster the flexibility necessary to acquire Marcus Camby. Though the Rockets are the likely frontrunner in the Camby acquisition, the Bulls are hoping that this 6’11” center will add another rebounding presence on the court with skills comparable to Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson.

Hockey

We are the champions, my friend!

We are the champions, my friend!

This weekend is the great Chicago Blackhawks convention where Blackhawks fans can meet and mingle with Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Patrick Sharp, Patrick Kane, Corey Crawford, and Bryan Bickell. Niklas Hjmarsson is getting married this weekend and Brent Seabrook is at home in Canada awaiting the arrival of his child, so though they will be missed, we wish them both heart-felt congratulations!

Blackhawks and Cubbies and Bears, OH MY!

Even through the dog days of summer, the sports keep going and, as Sonny and Cher once said, the beat goes on. Even though we are in the off seasons of most sports, there is still a lot of news coming down the pipes about our favorite sports teams.

Hockey

Going for the Gold!

Going for the Gold!

The post-2013 season has the Blackhawks focusing on adjusting to a new roster and being recruited to represent their home countries at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Team Canada has recruited Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Sharp, and Corey Crawford. Team USA has brought Nick Leddy, Brandon Saad, and sharp-shooter Patrick Kane to their team. In 2010 it came down to Kane vs. Toews for the gold and America went home with the silver medal. With this many Blackhawks skating to Russia in 2014, Chicago hockey fans will find a lot to scream at their television about as it will be difficult to root against either team with so many revered players pitted against each other for Olympic Gold. Congratulations to all of the Blackhawks chosen for the 2014 Winter Olympic games!

Comeback Kid

Boozer is not amused

The Bulls, and all of Chicago, are preparing for the much-awaited comeback of superstar Derrick Rose. His manager and brother, Reggie Rose, has been talking with the press about Rose’s recovery and says that Rose is ready to go. Reggie Rose says that he has “no concerns about [Derrick Rose] physically” and that taking a year off may have hurt the Bulls, but it was necessary for the longevity of his career. He believes “Derrick should probably be able to play fifteen to eighteen years,” so taking a year off was a means of making sure he was physically prepared to play basketball for the next two decades.

"Dude, this comeback had better not be a joke."

“Dude, this comeback had better not be a joke.”

The return of Rose is great news for Bulls fans, but sending Nate Robinson to the Denver Nuggets is definitely terrible news for Bulls fans as the heart of the 2013 playoffs is now someone we face instead of someone helping us block Lebron’s shots.

We're gonna miss you, buddy.

We’re gonna miss you, buddy.

So, with the return of Derrick Rose, the departure of Nate Robinson, and the shaky status of Luol Deng’s contract extension, what does the 2014 Chicago Bulls roster look like? The point guards look sharp with Derrick Rose, Kirk Hinrich, and Marquis Teague hitting the court. Rose’s return, if successful, will be a major boost for the Bulls, obviously. The skill and talent of Rose will be a great punch on the court; what will really stand out is that the heart and spirit of the team–both for the team and for the fans–is returning to the United Center. After a year and a half of anticipation, wondering down to the last game against the Miami Heat in the 2013 playoffs if Rose would make a miraculous return, the bright comet of the Chicago Bulls will blaze down the court again and set the competition ablaze. Our shooting guards and shooting forwards are looking sharp. Jimmy Butler is in need of some polish, but there is plenty of time to make sure that he is in the best condition to hit the court. Mike Dunleavy will serve as a secret weapon for the Bulls as the opposition will be on guard against the dynamite talent of Derrick Rose which will keep their eye distracted from the three-point power of Dunleavy. Power forwards Carlos Boozer, Taj Gibson, Malcom Thomas, and Erik Murphy are focused but in need of strengthening. Carlos Boozer is the 2014 Bulls’ Scottie Pippen, reliable with strong offense, but his defense needs a lot of work. Taj Gibson, on the other hand, brings a great defensive game. If the two could learn from each other, we would have two stunning power forwards on the court. Boozer’s on court relationship with Noah creates spectacular offense as well; they are a threat just like Pippen and Jordan when they hit the court together. Centers Joakim Noah and Nazr Mohammad round out the roster. Joakim Noah is the Bulls offense and does well adapting to the style of his teammates while remaining determined and focused. Mohammad does his job well with decent defense and use of fouls, but he is not good in long play. If Noah’s annual injuries flare up again, Mohammad will have big shoes to fill on the court as he is simply not on Noah’s level yet. The Bulls roster looks good, and they’ve proven that they can play without Rose. This year should provide us with amazing basketball as the return of Rose will only boost the ability of the already spectacular Chicago Bulls.

After many rumors and a lot of talks, the Cubs have traded Matt Garza to the Texas Rangers. In return the Cubs are getting third baseman Mike Ott and two right-handed pitchers, C.J. Edwards and Justin Grimm. The trade agreement also allows for the Cubs to acquire up to two more pitchers, possibly Neil Ramirez. This is proof that the Cubs are serious about rebuilding. It stands to reason that the Cubs are looking to build a good team that is could possibly begin winning because with all of the talk about revamping Wrigley Field, they should have a team good enough to draw fans into the expensive stadium. This also shows the Cubs are shifting away from keeping fan favorites and abandoning player loyalty and looking to rebuild a functioning baseball team that stands a chance to make the playoffs in the coming years.

BREAKING: If you keep eating that towel, you will not be hungry for lunch!

BREAKING: If you keep eating that towel, you will not be hungry for lunch!

The Bears begin training camp on Thursday! Preseason football will be hitting our television screens in a matter of weeks. Hopefully the Bears will be taking this time to strengthen their offensive line and forcing Jay Cutler to step up his game in order to get the Bears into the playoffs this season. Chicago is hungry for another major sports victory, and the Bears have the talent and the drive to make it happen.

Bear Down!

Bear Down!

Olympians, returned superstars, new players, and new goals; the world of Chicago sports is spinning into very interesting areas. As these sports get revved up and ready to go, remember that one very important event happening this year is the retirement of Mike Ditka’s number in January. Get ready for this monumental year of football and festivities with our Mike Ditka Chicago Bear tee shirt (http://tinyurl.com/oht723e).

The Cup Can Party, Y’all!

Act like professionals for the photo, boys. There are more fun photo ops to come.

Act like professionals for the photo, boys. There are more fun photo ops to come.

 

Now that hockey is over and the Blackhawks have brought the Stanley Cup to Chicago, there is only one thing that the team can do: properly treat the Stanley Cup to the best time an inanimate object can have in the Windy City! Of course, the entire team is up to the task of treating this fella right, but with this rowdy bunch of winners, we’re certain the Stanley Cup is having such a great time after just a week, he’ll want to renew his lease in a year. So, where has the Cup been?

Hello, I'm a professional and this is professional.

Hello, I’m a professional and this is professional and we are all professional and pretending having the Stanley Cup on this table isn’t the coolest thing ever.

 

Like the rest of us, the Stanley Cup has to do work before it heads out to party. Luckily, Coach Quenneville (aka “Hockey Ditka”) is a total hockey professional and knows that the Stanley Cup has to be a grown up and tour the news shows before it can go out and party.

You can eat one out of the other!

You can eat one out of the other!

 

Of course, the news rounds drew the party when Man B Que brought the party with a meat-based party snack Stanley Cup! So, let’s hope the Stanley Cup was used to help make a stew or hold a delicious dip or marinade.

After making visiting the usual morning show talking heads, the Cup gets to go out with the team, and they make sure to show Lord Stanley’s Cup a marvelous time.

"Top Ten Reasons Why The Blackhawks Rule!"

“Top Ten Reasons Why The Blackhawks Rule!”

 

Patrick Kane took a break from partying hard to take the Stanley Cup to visit David Letterman in New York. This is definitely the tamest time the Cup has spent with Kaner, The Party Mullet Monster in it’s week in Chicago.

Wasted away again in PatrickKanerville.

The Stanley Cup accompanied Kaner onstage at a Jimmy Buffett concert where, we assume, it was filled with either margaritas or cheeseburgers in paradise.

Let's rock harder

Let’s rock harder

 

Not to be outdone by Patrick Kane, Keith and Carcillo took the Cup to a Rush show so it could recover from the beach ball volleying by getting rocked hard.

The Stanley Cup, no doubt, has many adventures ahead of it as the Blackhawks keep it in tow for a year of partying. Concerts, parades, and other events are certainly in its future here in Chicago and every citizen of the Windy City will have their eyes peeled to get their chance to be in the presence of Lord Stanley’s Cup. However, we can all agree that it’s greatest night was June 24 when it reflected the glow of champagne-soaked victory of the 2013 Chicago Blackhawks; it was definitely shining its brightest as it found itself in the glow and champagne spray surrounding Andrew Shaw.

Let's all get matching Andrew Shaw victory scream tattoos, Chicago!

Even though hockey is over, the Stanley Cup gives us a reason to keep celebrating until October when all our favorite guys hit the ice again, ready to defend their title. Show your support for Andrew Shaw with our selection of Andrew Shaw tee shirts and jerseys.

Party Hard and Welcome the New Class

We partied in the streets a week ago. We rested up to party in the streets at the Blackhawks rally on Friday. The Fourth of July parties will be starting at the end of this week. Yes, sports fans, it’s time to channel our inner Kaner this summer.

Party Like You Mean It!

Party Like You Mean It!

 

The Blackhawks rally got the City of Chicago amped for a summer of boozing, partying, and keeping an eye out for wherever Patrick Kane takes the Stanley Cup to party. The Blackhawks were ready to rock out on Friday; if you missed it, you missed the party-inspiring words of Corey Crawford:

“Fucking right, Chicago! Woo! Biggest bunch of beauties in the league, fucking worked their nuts off for this trophy!”

Macho Man Corey Savage has a bone to pick with you, HULK HOGAN!

Macho Man Corey Savage has a bone to pick with you, HULK HOGAN!

 

As the Blackhawks take their throne as the biggest sports team in the news, some stories about this great, amazing, Stanley Cup-hoisting team have fallen into the shadow of the high of victory. As we can all name the great players that helped Chicago reclaim Lord Stanley’s Cup, this past weekend brought two trades that have saddened many Blackhawks fans. The need to keep Bryan Bickell on the roster, the foresight necessary to manage money in order to renew Kane and Toews in the upcoming years, and the reality of keeping the pay cap free in order to recruit new talent and preserve current stars are the stars that aligned that determined the destiny of Dave Bolland and Michael Frolik, two incredible players that will now be headed away from Chicago to Canada.

Perhaps the looming trade is why The Rat was not having the best time at the rally.

Perhaps the looming trade is why The Rat was not having the best time at the rally.

The need to keep Bickell, a player who has been consistent and reliable all season, especially through the postseason, resigned to the Blackhawks with a four year contract extension at $16 million dollars (a pretty big jump from the $600,000 he earned this season). These trades will also make sure that superstars like Kane, Toews, and Sharp will be able to have a contract renewal when it’s time for them to head up to be traded.

Keeping Bickell is, clearly, an important priority. The other goal is to acquire talent that will live up to the legacy of the 2013 Chicago Blackhawks, the team that not only won the Stanley Cup but also had a record-breaking regular season. The draft allowed for the Blackhawks to add several new faces to the roster for next season. The Hawks snagged Carl Dahlstrom of Sweden, a reliable defensemen who possesses excellent shielding and board battle skills. However, Dahlstrom’s puck-handling is in need of polish, but this gain shows the Blackhawks are looking to strengthen their defensive line, something that gave them great trouble in the playoffs. They also grabbed Ryan Hartman, a player with the same style of Andrew Shaw and Bryan Bickell. He joins the Blackhawks after playing for the Plymouth Whalers with a 2013 season that racked up 37 assists and 60 points. This track record puts him on the road to being like Marian Hossa. The Blackhawks also picked up Anthony Lewis who scored 43 points in 53 games with the U18 squad. This left wing might be the smartest acquisition for the Blackhawks in the entire draft. Hopefully the new class will live up to the standard set by the 2013 roster of the Chicago Blackhawks.

Hockey doesn’t start up again until October, so we have a long time to party hard for the 2013 Chicago Blackhawks and even longer to unexpectedly meet the Stanley Cup somewhere in Chicago. From now until the Blackhawks hit the ice again, let’s party hard and represent our favorite players. Whether you are looking to celebrate classic players like Bobby Hull, former players like Dave Bolland, or current heroes like Andrew Shaw, Clark Street Sports has a vast selection of player jerseys and tee shirts to choose from so you can look fresh all summer continuing the celebration wave that is engulfing the Windy City. Visit http://www.clarkstreetsports.com to get your fine apparel for this nationwide hockey bonanza because sports is good!

Where Do We Go From Here?

HEY, REMEMBER WHEN THE BLACKHAWKS WON THE STANLEY CUP?

IT LOOKED LIKE THIS AND IT WAS AMAZING!

IT LOOKED LIKE THIS AND IT WAS AMAZING!

Right now, life is all parties, parades, and passing out. Chicago has the parade coming up on Friday which is already drawing a large out-of-town crowd. This week promises to be a sea of red shirts and jerseys passing through the streets making Chicago’s infrastructure look like arteries crammed with red blood cells. However, after the remnants of the parade have been swept away and July brings patriotic parties and barbecues, we must make sure we are not still clinging desperately to the Blackhawks win. Next week many of us will find ourselves in a food-stained Shaw jersey, surrounded by empty beer cans, watching Dave Bolland’s game-winning goal on repeat on YouTube, and looking to see if anyone else still has any energy to party for the Blackhawks.

Where do we go from here? In a week or so, your boss will not accept that faded Toews shirt as acceptable work clothing and your fatigue as the norm (this window of time is even shorter for those of you living outside of Chicago). At some point in the near future, after the parades and parties, we have to figure out how to get back into normal life. We’ve spent two months in playoff hockey rooting against the Wild, chanting “Detroit Sucks!”, dethroning the Kings, and taking down the Bruins that our brains are programmed for drinking and adrenaline at seven o’clock at night. Without Shaw beating up the opposing team, how are we supposed to figure out how to exist? Is there life beyond playoff hockey?

1. Hey, Did You Know Baseball Is Happening?

No Jumbotron!

No Jumbotron!

 

Hey, did you guys know that baseball is still a sport? Did you know that it’s been happening since, like, April? Now, we know that suggesting switching over to baseball from playoff hockey is like telling you that drinking sips of Sprite will get you just as drunk as slamming shots of tequila.

"No, Sprite's gonna get you tore up. Look at how faced this lamb is!"

“No, Sprite’s gonna get you tore up! Look at how faced this lamb is!”

 

So, more has been happening at Wrigleyville than an argument about a ridiculous jumbotron. It turns out that this team known as the Chicago Cubs has been playing a game known as baseball there for, like, three months. Their 31-43 season is hardly surprising because these numbers reflect the Cubs playing baseball. As usual, the Cubbies have some outstanding winners and some abysmal-looking losers. Nate Schierholtz is killing it this year with a line of .296/.347/.558 and has ten homeruns under his belt with 29 RBI. However, Carlos Marmol is killing the Cubs by allowing 26 hits, reeling in 21 walks, and letting six home runs get pitched right out of the park. Statistics like this reflect why he’s the perfect closing pitcher; he’s the best bet the Cubs have for screwing up a lead and losing it all in the ninth which is pretty much their baseball superpower.

Replace flying and super strength with errors and losing in the final moments and this is what the Cubs look like.

Replace flying and super strength with errors and losing in the final moments and this is what the Cubs look like.

 

The Cubs are expected to trade major assets Nate Schierholtz, Matt Garza, Scott Feldman, and Kevin Gregg. This is perfect because the Cubs’ offense is terrible, so trading their best offensive players seems like a really good idea.

Surprisingly, down at Comiskey (or, if you’re new, US Cellular Field), things are fairing a little better but not by much. Their 29-41 season is a smidge more successful than the Cubs, thus far. After being swept by the Cubs in the Crosstown Classic, the White Sox haven’t fared better than their North Side rivals and will not be getting to the playoffs this year. At 10.5 games behind the Tigers and looking a losing hot player, Jesse Crain, the White Sox need to focus on playing with new ways to spice up their game for next season or admit that they’ve just stopped believin’.

Hmmm…perhaps baseball isn’t the best thing to follow a successful hockey season with. Whereas it is a good excuse to drink, it may just be a good way to pass the time until August.

2. Bears Football Is Only 74 Days Away!

But who's counting?

But who’s counting?

On August 9th, the Chicago Bears pre-season games begin in Florida against the Panthers!

This season promises to be interesting as a lot has been shuffled. First, Lovie Smith has been replaced by new head coach, Marc Trestman. He has yet to have to prove himself, but he has had a successful track record of focusing quarterbacks. Quarterbacks need to be focused, and they need someone they can connect with who can run the ball. New to the roster this season is former New York Giant, Martellus Bennett. This tight-end had fifty-five receptions and five touchdowns with the Giants next year; hopefully, he will take pressure off of Brandon Marshall. This will also be the Bears’ first season without Brian Urlacher leading the defensive line. We have seventy-four days until we see how this new line-up performs on the field; once that starts up, it’s only a short time until hockey begins again.

3. Just Wait for More Hockey

We just need a short break!

We just need a short break!

 

With no lock-out looming like storm clouds in the distance, we won’t have to wait as long for hockey season! Give the boys a break, they’ve had a long short season of kicking ass and taking names.

4. Look Good For Lord Stanley’s Cup

Peep This Champ Shiz!

Peep This Champ Shiz!

 

Okay, you don’t have to stop the party for the Blackhawks. The Stanley Cup is exciting, and there will probably be a lot of babies born in Chicago nine months from now. However, though your ratty Kane shirt has brought the Blackhawks a lot of luck, it’s time to freshen up your look with some new Blackhawks threads because the Stanley Cup is in Chicago and it demands some fine threads and accessories. Luckily Clark Street Sports has a lot of Stanley Cup Championship gear to choose from, so you can add to your already extensive Blackhawks-themed wardrobe. Whether you’re going to the parade or just keeping the summer going strong with endless Stanley Cup parties, you’re going to need to show your love for the hard work the Blackhawks did this season. So visit http://www.clarkstreetsports.com for all of your sports attire.

We’re going to get through this time without hockey together because there are so many other teams to scream yourself hoarse over because sports is good!
