Weekend What-To-Do: Cops Vs Firefighters Edition

Weekend What-To-Do is Tailgate's guide to what's good Chicago. Sorry, we've neglected posting for about a month; Tailgate's been traveling a lot (seriously, Wisconsin, New Mexico, New York City). In any case, here's what you should be checking out in Chicago's sports scene this weekend.

Baseball, Baseball, Baseball
We previewed it earlier in the week, but it bears mentioning again, Chicago Cops vs Chicago Fire Putter Outers at the (Jail?) Cell tomorrow afternoon. The Sox are in Kansas City taking on the Royals and looking to gain some ground on the division leading Twins. Meanwhile, the North Siders are hosting the NL East leading Atlanta Braves.

The Bears are still going thru the motions and actually have a preseason game at Soldier Field against Oakland on Saturday night, but until then check out Andy Behrens' piece on new Bears OC, Mike Martz.
