  1. - Pardon Joe Kotlarz - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 9:51 am:

    Doug Flutie returns to Chicago, albeit with 9.5 fingers.


  2. - The Muse - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 9:56 am:

    “Juggling real footballs is so much easier than political ones.”


  3. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 9:58 am:

    “Claypool! Stop moving!”


  4. - Belle - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 9:59 am:

    You’d don’t play with 2 at once? You have a better chance at winning with 2.


  5. - Stones - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:00 am:

    Rahm (playing Paul Crewe) reenacts his favorite scene from “The Longest Yard” by hitting the Guard (played by Bruce Rauner) with a hard pass to the lower abdomen.


  6. - Concerned - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:03 am:

    I want to increase my popularity to Jay Cutler-level!


  7. - LizPhairTax - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:04 am:

    Today is going to be full of dumb public appearances by Roger Goodell and Rahm Emanuel.

    We’ve covered this ground before but pretending-to-care-about-sports Rahm is as insulting and disingenuous as Carhartt Bruce.

    Ask Ron Santos and the ghost of Bobby Hull.


  8. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:05 am:

    “Hit 2 parking meters, you get 2 Taste of Chicago concert tickets, hit 4 parking meters you get the Lucas Museum. Go!”


  9. - Huh? - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:05 am:

    Please forgive me, I am a better dancer than quarterback.


  10. - Dance Band on the Titanic - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:07 am:

    1st round ego. 7th round talent.


  11. - Huh? - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:07 am:

    Can’t decide what play to call, a pass, hand off to somebody else or a quarterback sneak. Have to wait to see which way the wind blows.


  12. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:08 am:

    “Watch this… ‘Keep going… Farther… Farther!… Even farther’… That Plummer kid is gullible… ‘Farther Jason!’… “


  13. - Jake From Elwood - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:08 am:

    Mayor Rahm understands more than most that NFL is code for “not for long.”


  14. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:09 am:

    Rahm Emanuel tries his had at ANOTHER version of “Punt, Kick, or Pass”…


  15. - Century Club - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:09 am:

    All I can think of when I see this is the Peyton Manning commercial where he drills the little kid in the back because he’s not running the right route. It just seems like how Rahm would coach peewee ball.


  16. - Mama - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:10 am:

    - Oswego Willy @ 10:09 am:-
    You win the contest!


  17. - @MisterJayEm - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:11 am:

    “You never let getting sacked for a ten-yard loss on third down go to waste.”

    – MrJM


  18. - a drop in - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:12 am:

    Rahm finds it’s easier to pass the buck then the football.


  19. - Rollo Tomasi - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:14 am:

    After the next election maybe I could get a job as a ball boy at the Portage Park pee wee football league.


  20. - Quizzical - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:15 am:

    I’m going to need a few Hail Mary’s if I want to be re-elected!


  21. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:21 am:

    “Shhh. When it’s about to hit Fioretti, then yell ‘Bob!’ so I get him face-on. Ready?… “


  22. - Walter Peyton - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:21 am:

    @LizPhairTax I see what you did there.


  23. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:22 am:

    “I can throw a football, I’ve seen ‘Rudy’ like 15 times or something… “


  24. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:24 am:

    Rahm’s a pretty good passer. He passed a property tax hike and he passed pension reform, although the last one got picked off by Bob Thomas’ team.


  25. - Former Titan - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:25 am:

    The receiver asked to remain anonymous.


  26. - Ottawa Phil - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:25 am:

    “I’m your tiny dancer, a dancer for money …

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFz3llHuoXo


  27. - The Dude Abides - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:30 am:

    Better at passing the buck than passing the football.


  28. - Boooooooo - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:31 am:

    “I’m only throwing Hail Marys from here on out. Oh, and I’m gonna throw this football.”


  29. - Curious - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:34 am:

    @LizPhairTax wins this thread. The mayor is good at a lot of things, and can probably out run/bike/swim us all with his triathlon training. But he doesn’t know squat about sports and when he pretends to be interested in this kind of stuff it makes you cringe. Dude, just own who you are. Nobody will care if you can’t name 3 players the Bears should draft, or even 3 players on the Bears if you fix what’s wrong with Chicago.


  30. - JS Mill - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:36 am:

    “So…after I do this we get to go to the Wine and Cigar Tent? Right?”


  31. - Tequila Mockingbird - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:41 am:

    Go short!


  32. - wordslinger - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:57 am:

    –Ask Ron Santos and the ghost of Bobby Hull.–

    What was extra-special hilarious about the latter was that The Golden Jet was standing right behind Emanuel when he claimed that Bobby was in heaven, looking down.

    You couldn’t miss him. He was the big dude with the polar bear pelt on his head.


  33. - Chicago 20 - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 10:59 am:

    “No tax dollars were used to throw this party.”

    Just where does Choose Chicago obtain the money from their budget?

    Tax dollars.

    How much did Choose Chicago spend on the NFL Draft?

    We are still waiting for Don Welsh to tell us because Choose Chicago says they’re exempt from FOIA requests.


  34. - Bogey Golfer - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 11:08 am:

    “Bruce, you run a route along Michigan, cut behind the Bean, I’ll fake it to you.”


  35. - LizPhairTax - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 11:08 am:

    He should try to play 60 and 30 instead


  36. - Huh? - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 11:19 am:

    Rahm demonstrates the new rule allowing 2 balls in play at the same time. The defense will have to get both ball carriers down before the play ends. If both balls end up in the end zone, the offense gets triple points for the play.


  37. - LizPhairTax - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 11:19 am:

    I almost forgot about his expression of joy that the Bears were “3 and Zero” when he left the White House.

    And to Curious’ point, and to borrow from Kenny Powers, I play real sports. I’m not about being the best at exercising.

    Rahm can be a hero to the soul cycle set but he will never know what a catching a Clincher at Oz Patk feels like. It’d be better for us all if he’d just own that.

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=130272408


  38. - Huh? - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 11:29 am:

    No matter how many balls that Rahm has in play, he is about to be sacked by Black Lives Matter.


  39. - JoanP - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 11:29 am:

    Draft Town is just another reason I hate Rahm.


  40. - Vote Quimby! - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 11:30 am:

    The annual wearing of Da Bears jacket. Does Rahm keep his Bears jacket in the same closet Bruce keeps his Carhartt jacket?


  41. - siriusly - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 11:32 am:

    Maybe this will help me get rid of that Ballerina nickname.


  42. - Anonymous - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 11:53 am:

    ” I got SOME balls, eh…”


  43. - pool boy - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 11:56 am:

    Deflategate II.


  44. - Boone's is Back - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 12:05 pm:

    “Watch me throw this wounded duck of a pass. It’s even more wounded than I am!”


  45. - Anonymous - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 12:33 pm:

    Not as much spin w/o that middle finger. ;)


  46. - Boilermaker - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 1:45 pm:

    “And its another hail Mary to George Lucas!”


  47. - Anonymiss - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 3:56 pm:

    “I’m better at punting, but fine. Give me the f’ing ball. I’ll throw it.”


  48. - Man with a plan - Thursday, Apr 28, 16 @ 4:12 pm:

    Tee hee hee, I’m going to throw a home run, tee hee hee!
