I Told You to Wake Me!

Since I don't read the Trib, I will have to believe our mighty administrator about Ditka. Obviously he can't complain about the Bears because they are probably in the best hands they have been in since their Super Bowl year. Ron Rivera may not be Buddy Ryan, but Lovie Smith isn't Ditka either. (Yes, that means Ditka wasn't the best coach ever, such blasphemy, I know.) It isn't exactly super brave to rip the Blackhawks or Wirtz. Anybody who charges his own stadium like twenty eight bucks for a case of beer can't have so many other redeeming values so as to make him verbal-assault proof. Wirtz has been bad for the team and hockey in general for a long time now. Whenever the team was good it almost seemed an accident, or in spite of, not because of the owner. I keep hearing rumblings that Peter is supposed to take over at some point. Let's hope it isn't only contingent upon Bad Boy Bill's demise. The notion of all the Blackhawk fans wishing Bill ill will is unsettling. Than again, how much power can four people wield?
In any case, Ditka, bad hip and all, will probably be skating before the local Original Six team is any good again.
Until next time, be good.

Dub-ya is here for creative reasons. He really is an intrawebby virgin.

I worked with Wirtz' niece for about 9 months.

Lets just say bad management runs in the family.
