Media day has begun http://t.co/rG9DUhcpnx
Almost ready to get this party started. The new facility is impressive. http://t.co/rxOJIj1wAX
With new practice facility in place, it's a guarantee I will be a league leader for meals at the Palace. http://t.co/wwp37uWFtx
Thanks for everything, Chicago. The city was good to me. Looking forward to living in Oakland.
Moving out to Cali and will change my Twitter handle at some point. Don't take it personal if I unfollow. If we're cool, you have my info.
It was a good overall experience, but this was a decision I chose to make. Hope you enjoyed the coverage over the past 5 years.
Neil and Stacey will have the TV call for every pre season game. Bill and I will call final 3 pre season games and of course all 82 and post
I love NBA media day. Every organization is pumped up and excited about the season. Players and coaches are in great moods.Plenty of smiles
A week from tonight the Bulls first pre season game and a month from tonight the NBA opener as the Bulls play at MSG against the Knicks.
4 weeks after school started, our 3rd- and 1st-graders mocked me at breakfast for Bulls camp opening and back to work. Payback is a . . .
Free agent D.J. Stephens, a freak athlete, has agreed to a training camp deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, league sources tell RealGM.
A beautiful weekend in Chicago http://t.co/vzHD5uoh2E
Wow Bucs on the road beat the Steelers...that's just crazy.
Awful 2nd half for the Bears--time to hit the bottle....Mr. Pibb.
Bears block a fga by the Packers---there's still hope! Um..not really. Just a bad,second half. I go back to time management late 1st half.
Very depressing. Great start but defense was a no show.
If Bears lose this game..Cutler will go to 1-10 vs Green Bay..is that right?
Bennett is a beast---unstoppable ..one of the few bright spots today as well as Forte and the overall volume of play of OL.
If the Bears lose this game they'll fall to 2-2 with both losses coming at Soldier Field. What's up with that?
Hey, All is not lost....The Bulls open camp Tuesday.
This game has become a certified blow out.
That was a bad, bad call Refs are awful today Awful. Packers get TD.
Og great---Bears called for holding....Packers 1st down. Bostic with a hold on a FG attempt--really?
Plenty of blame to go around Cutler or Marshall..bottom line..it was an interception.
Did Geno Smith steal Cutler's uniform at halftime?
What was that Jay?
Bulletin just in. Rodgers is good. Wow.
Noooooo. Cutler not a good decision.
Not at the game but is the Soldier Field turf an issue today? Lot of players slipping without being hit.
Packers up 24-17.....
Sorry---I'm just a fan but time management the last 60sec was inexcusable
Bears wasted that drive by not calling 2nd time out earlier...horrible.
You make the call...TD or not?
The Bears-Packers game is an old school Chicago Blitz -NJ Generals USFL shoot out.
Oh my----on side kick + Rodgers= disaster.
Okkkkkk.......you want to give Rodgers the ball on his own 41? Um, I don't think so.
That was one the slickest and sweetest play calls I've seen by any team this season.
Bears back on top 17-14
What a play .....tremendous call.
Bears banged up OL is doing a tremendous job...Packers can't get to Cutler.
3rd down call... Bears need to fumble here to get the 1st down.
Rodgers to Nelson Packers take the lead.
Is the Bears game being officiated by replacement refs?
To quote Vince Lombardi, " What the heck is going out here? "
Good thing Hawk isn't broadcasting this game..he'd be all over this officiating crew.
Bears may want to cover Nelson...just saying.
Almost game time.... http://t.co/fuUIoblHgm
What a play call by Trestman !
Forte's final rushing yards today vs Packers 2, 327
Forte just trucked Burnett
Let's blame that last Packers score on Carlos Marmol.
Wow--that was too easy--Bears D got ripped up.
Packers nation very, very quiet on Twitter
80 yard drive...chewed the clock....Rodgers stayed on the sideline...Packers D is gassed. Love it.
Wow--too easy- Bears!!!
Long, long day at the office for the Packers folks. They can't stop the run or pass.
Love the play calling by Trestman
Wow--refs blew that call..Bears will take it.
Bears carving up Packers D
Great start for Bears offense. Get Forte going. Going to be a long day for Packers D.
