Short Hops: Cubs Renovations? Bulls Better?

Short Hops is Tailgate's Second City-centric take on sports and news that's wrangled from the bustling river of information you call the "World Wide Web."

  • Wrigley Renovations A Reality?
  • Cubbie Doctor's Examiner was privy to a survey the Wrigley Field/Cubs dished out to the fandom and maybe because the Ricketts' family already has put up some money and renovations (in one year's time, no less!) these ideas sound sorta aggressive and plausible. --HT: The always on-point Cubs Fan Report.
  • Bulls Beat Back Blazers, Luol Deng Goes Off
  • Really wanted to go for the "Deng, Son!" header but thought better of it. Still, the Bulls romped through the Portland Trailblazers last night and Deng went off for a career-high 40 points in the United Center undressing. Also, Derrick Rose tied his career best of 13 dimes. Also, the previously mentioned "Cubs Fan Report" now is doing a "Bulls Fan Report" they're awesome guys and know their Chicago sports, so, yeah, shameless plug.
  • Roller Derby Championships Come To Chicago
  • Our very own venerable and esteemed "Derby Dame" will be at the matches this weekend, but you should go too! UIC Pavilion is hosting the fun and excitement.
