Just in case some of you are having trouble picking them out in a crowd.
Of course, readers of the K-Line would not have to wait until till morning to read or speculate about this possibility!
it's the 5th anniversary of the Chicago White Sox winning the World Series (Juan Uribe who made two great plays in the 9th inning of the clincher, returns to the World Series tomorrow) AND my nephew's 12th birthday. Happy Birthday, big guy!

At lease Lovie is stepping up and taking the blame for failing to throw the red flag on the Cutler quarterback sneak fumble. Gotta respect him for that.

HM has a post in his "best of" series which takes us back to 1982!
What was going on in 1982 in the world of sports?
Clemson, yes Clemson, was the defending NCAA football champ. Penn State would be voted the national champs for the 82 season.
NFL? The San Fransisco 49ers won Super Bowl XVI
A freshman Michael Jordan and North Carolina defeated Georgetown with Patrick Ewing for the NCAA title.
Baseball? Montreal hosted the All-Star Game while the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the AL champs, Milwaukee Brewers in the World Series.

Yesterday the Tribune reported that Comcast Sportsnet Chicago fired Jen Patterson. Now Deadspin and others are reporting that the reason for the firing is because Jen is dating Blackhawk Nick Boynton, a romance that became public recently.
If true, is this fair?
Jen, formerly of Monsters in the Morning, never hide her devotion of the Blackhawks. As long as she can remain unbiased in her reporting on the Blackhawks (or have her cover sports other than hockey), is this fair?
Here's Robert Feder (TV & Media Critic) blogging about the Jen Patterson firing.
■I believe it was the late Richard Hainey, the crusty former editor of Chicago Today and a beloved professor at Medill, who taught us the adage: “You can’t cover the circus if you sleep with the elephants.” It’s advice worth recalling after the firing last week of Jen Patterson, an on-air contributor and rising star at Comcast SportsNet Chicago. It came after other female sports reporters privately voiced dismay about Patterson dating Nick Boynton, a defenseman for the Chicago Blackhawks. By the time Sun-Times gossip columnist Bill Zwecker reported seeing them out on the town as “a nice cozy item,” Comcast SportsNet took action. I have no idea what Patterson’s relationship was with Boynton or if other issues may have led to her departure. Neither side is commenting beyond a “wish her well” statement from her former bosses. But journalists everywhere — especially those in the volatile sports media world — would be wise to heed the lesson.

With the highlights:
8. Or maybe Goodell is dragging his feet because he knows Sunday's Dallas-Minnesota showdown could be Favre's last game.
The table is certainly set for Favre to walk away. He's informed everyone that the tendinitis in his elbow is bothering him and hurting his throwing accuracy. He threw out the possibility of sitting out a game or two and giving his elbow rest.
If the Vikings fall to 1-4 and Sterger's $ettlement demands become unreasonable, the smart play for Favre is to put himself on injured reserve and enroll in sext-addiction therapy. Sprint and Verizon both have nationally recognized programs.
7. It makes perfect sense for Sterger to hold onto voice mails, e-mails and pictures she received from a famous athlete/celebrity.
I'm tired of hearing people -- mostly men -- rip Sterger for keeping the alleged Favre communications for two years.
If Halle Berry texted me a picture of her little toe, I'd save the text, print out the picture, frame it and hang it in my office. Hell, I'd take out an ad in a major newspaper bragging that Berry contacted me. (Just kidding, Halle, if you're reading this. I'm very discreet. Ask Beyonce.)
Favre is famous. He should assume that all of his communications are being recorded and saved. It's the world we live in.

Despite the fact that he lives in Minnesota, doesn't understand the genius and mastery of Ozzie Guillen and once asked me if all of my the males in an ex's family looked like Kirby Puckett, he will always be a friend. Hopefully this video is not as gay as "Porch Pals"?!
One last thing, sorry but your blog is still banned in China. It wasn't me.

A lucky win coupled with a Packers defeat.
Minnesota Twins (94-68, AL Central Champs)
... But I will say this: The emailer accusing Minnesotans of "distrusting" black people? TOTALLY DEAD ON. Minnesotans aren't racist so much as they're suspicious of anyone who does not have blond hair, blue eyes, a last name ending in "son," and a hearty bowl of Jello salad ready for their neighbors at all times.
Twins fans are like the retarded, in-bred cousins of Packer fans. They're fat. They're pale. They distrust black people, with the inexplicable exception of Kirby Puckett (more on him later), and embrace scraptastic white queefs like Nick Punto.
I live in the Twin Cities and am subjected to Twins fans jerking themselves off on a daily basis. It's always the same shit. "Didja know Joe Mauer grew up in St. Paul? Have ya been to Target Field yet? What a gorgeous place! It's so great to have the boys out of the Metrodome! Wouldn't it be cool if our little team could beat those overpaid Yankees from the Big City? Have you heard that song by The Hold Steady? It's so neat Whatshisname Finn remembers where he came from!" Gah! These simpletons are too overcome with unjustified pride to realize they were screwed into paying for a stadium, most fans never went to a game before said stadium, and their team isn't nearly the underdog they like to think if they believe payroll is the barometer.

Another valiant effort by the wild-card Yankees (they didn't even win their division but somehow they are up 2-0!!). Again this one was not easy,
falling behind again and then surrounded by a very hostile crowd seemingly upset over what they perceived to be the wrong call by the home plate ump!! Valiant!
As Hawk would say: "Keep it going boys!"

Somewhat surprised that Philly isn't higher on the list than #4 with both the Phillies and the Flyers, but at least they got #1 right!!!!
