Good morning, Chicago

Good morning, Chicago, and good morning, Insiders. A stick tap to those in silver-black-and-white we saw at our St. Paul hotel yesterday - those who made the drive across the Upper Midwest or took flights from points beyond to see the Kings lose important moments of the game and get flattened in ...

Good morning, Chicago

Good morning, Chicago, good morning, Insiders, and good morning, uh, first back-to-back of the season. It was an easy flight from Los Angeles that pushed back at 8:30 a.m. and landed in Chicago at 2:45 p.m. local time. It was a calm and uneventful flight, with only minimal turbulence right as we ...

Presumably, it was information that Jeurys Familia would be pitching the ninth inning after Harv... Full Story

Good morning, Windy City, and good morning, Insiders. There are a number of endearing and evocative nicknames for this world class city. Windy City, Second City, Chi-town and City by the Lake are among them, but the best comes from Carl Sandburg's poem, Chicago. The first stanza: Hog Butcher f... Full Story

Good morning, Chicago

Good morning, Chicago, or to be more precise, Rosemont, Illinois. Because of the quick turnaround and the price of a hotel room that will hardly be used on a Saturday and Sunday night in the city, I’m based near O’Hare for this trip and am commuting into the United Center for tonight’s historic tilt...

Good morning, Chicago

The Los Angeles Kings' winter wonderland tour has shifted west for a Sunday evening game at the United Center.
