D & Davis returns this week and we’re wondering…where has all the time gone? And its about to be 2016…where the hell are the flying cars? Don’t give us them BS “hoverboards.”
Here’s our a new format to preview our shows — 10 @ 10, meaning 10 shots of news at 10 am each Saturday, for the hour preceding new D & D. Here you can find a one-stop shop of what’s poppin’ in the world at this moment and what subjects you can expect our crew to tackle starting at 11 am on chicagolandsportsradio.com.
We’re compiling links, quotes, social media posts, memes, music and video and whatever else we can put in this space. If you want to add to the convo, feel free to do so in our comments and also mind our call-in information at the bottom of the post.
If you don’t know what’s going on in the world at 10 am, we want to make sure you’re a little more hip to the game by 11.
1. See Star Wars Yet?
Oh, you did? Well, don’t come round me with that spoiling shit or you’re getting Kylo Ren’s lightsaber in your ass. Got my tickets for Sunday. Looking at early reports, there’ll still be many who have to interrupt NFL Sunday to get a look at the newest space epic cause lines started early.
2. Guests and The Return of D
More great guests this week but nothing supersedes the return of our guy, D, regular co-host Demonze Spruiel. Big ups again to Evan F. Moore, who held things down the past couple weeks in the chair that isn’t Davis’s.
No weekly segment with Joe Tanksley on the Bears this week, unfortunately, but we still have two veterans of the Chicago sports scene — Yahoo! Sports Radio’s Jason Goch will be calling in to talk about the Bears, Bulls and whatever else comes to mind. Also, Chicago basketball’s big homie, Bryan Crawford, will be in studio during the Noon hour to talk Bulls and the NBA.
3. The 1st Annual Dizzles
As if the dope guests aren’t enough, D & Davis reveals what we’re sure will be an honor of distinction for years to come — our year-end award, The Dizzle! (though we aren’t married to that name)…
Take a look at our initial categories and listen during the 1 pm hour to find out who receives the Dizzle from our whole crew (easy now…):
Sportsperson of the Year
Sportsanimal of the Year
Squad of the Year
Meatball of the Year
Lawrence Taylor Memorial “Yeeeeaaaooowwww!” Candy Taster of the Year
4. Man in the Middle
Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke was the center of attention during hearings at the Cook County Courthouse this week. The now indicted-officer got treatment like this from the family of Laquan McDonald as he left on Friday. Horrible actions have repercussions, it doesn’t just go one way, officer. Hopefully this is just the beginning.
5. Sox Solidify Infield
After the Cubs blazed through the MLB Winter Meetings, their crosstown rivals were left looking more than a little impotent, but in signing former Oakland A, Brett Lawrie, and acquiring multiple all-star Todd Frazier from Cincinnati this week, the team at least looks stronger in its infield with the two players expected to fill starting spots at second and third bases, respectively.
Now only locking down shortstop, another outfield and maybe another middle reliever or two reside on the South Sider’s laundry list. Seems like its gonna be a longer winter for Sox fans than for Cubs fans.
6. Kane’s Streak Ends
If the Warriors weren’t going to keep their’s up, you figure Patrick Kane didn’t have too much farther to go either. The Hawks were shut out against Colorado on Tuesday but they still got plenty of reasons to keep fighting this season, such as the whole defending the Stanley Cup thing…get more info on the Hawks and their renewed focus on divisional prosperity with Sidney Brown.
7. Bowl Season Begins
Four bowl games (really, four?) today, and what, fifty-eleven more to come? Should be fun no matter how interminable bowl fever can be — get ready for a lot of sunny climates and half-assed commitment from kids just glad to get out of taking finals.
