Short Hops: Boozer Boo-Boo, Big Buck Recap, Bye-Bye Baseball

Short Hops is Tailgate's informative little link collection. It shows up from time to time. Here's what you should know this morning as you start your work week and wish you weren't gearing up for winter...

  • Boozer. Out. Eight Weeks.
  • Oh Snap! (pun!) The Bulls prized offseason acquisition is out for two months after breaking the fifth metacarpal bone on his right hand (aka: his right pinky finger.) Booze-man should be back after the team's west coast circus trip.
  • Trevor Floren Destroys Berg Family's Rein of BBH Dominance
  • Trevor Floren of suburban Lake Villa claimed the coveted "Pappy's Jug" at the 3rd Annual Big Buck Hunter World Championships this weekend at The Cubby Bear. Floren's dominating victory marked the first time in BBH history that a member of the Berg family had not won.
