    Week 8 football blog: What about Glenbard West vs. Addison Trail?
    A Glenbard West fan emailed wondering why GBW-Addison Trail didn't make this week's "Five Can't-Miss Games." Fair question, considering it's one of two matchups of 7-0 teams (the rather large Carrollton-Camp Point Central tilt didn't make the cut...

    Lakers' long-range plans aren't working out

  • Saints must work on fixing the defense before facing the Lions

    There were no punts by the New Orleans Saints, but there was a swift kick on their way out of Detroit. The year was 2008, and the Lions were one loss away from the inevitable — the only 0-16 season in NFL history. The Saints had just humiliated...
  • Travis Ishikawa's walk-off home run sends Giants to World Series

    Ned Yost is in the World Series. Don Mattingly and Matt Williams can walk freely around their towns. In an October packed with managerial decisions gone wrong, the other guys are off the hook. Mike Matheny made the biggest blunder of the postseason...
