This year marks the 25th anniversary of the 1984 Chicago Cubs. The team grabbed Chicago's heart and broke it in a trip out west during the NLCS. That year marked a few historic notes:
In 1985, Major League Baseball switched the playoff format from 5 games to 7 games for the NLCS.
The Bears held their regular Monday afternoon press conference at Halas Hall and Head Coach Lovie Smith talked with the media about Hillenmeyer's rib injury, the offensive play and deflected talk of bad officiating.

I don't think the media or the fans has grasped the significance of Cubs Outfielder Milton Bradley being suspended for the duration of the season. He didn't do drugs or get arrested, he was suspended because of his attitude.
So Brian Urlacher is going to be watching Bears games from the sidelines this year with a wrist injury. You know, they never really showed how he injured the wrist last night, so it could have easily been a re-injury, right?
Today is a strange day. It is the day of remembrance for the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. But it is also the day that Michael Jordan will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. I feel bad for Gabe's awesome sound/brain wave piece. It's up against some mighty news today.
If you were outside at any point on Sunday, you knew the temperature was unnatural for a day in August. Not exactly ideal conditions for a triathlon, but I did it anyway. I think it was that and the monotony of swimming, biking and running that put weird thoughts into my head.
