Weekend What-To-Do: It's Nice Out

Weekend What-To-Do is Tailgate's look at what you can do with your weekend (from a sport-minded perspective) in the Second City.

Great Weather!

It's gonna be sunny and in the mid 60s all weekend so go outside and have fun. Need some suggestions? Ride your bike to Soldier Field and scope out a tailgating spot for the 2012 tilt between Notre Dame and Miami. Or you could mosey on over to the United Center and set up a shrine to NBA demi-god LeBron "Something Clever About Not Winning" James in hopes that he comes to the Bulls this off-season.

Blackhawks are in San Jose

Toews, Kane, Niemmi and Coach Q are still out West and lining up against the San Jose Sharks for the right to go to the Stanley Cup Finals. Sorta important series. Whatever. The 'Hawks took the season series but every game was very close and San Jose's first line of forwards is one of the few that's better than the Blackhawks. Yeah, we said it. Thornton, Heatley and Marleau can pommel you with brawn and shoot like snipers.

Baseball, Baseball, Baseball

The Cubs are hosting Pittsburgh all weekend, the Sox are in Kansas City.

Have a great weekend.
