30 Guys In Short-Shorts By The Lake: An American’s Guide To Chicago’s Rugby Weekend Pt. 1

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then it should be painfully obvious that rugby is taking center stage in Chicago this coming weekend of Nov 4-5. On Friday night, Team USA is taking the Maori All Blacks at Toyota Park and the next day, Ireland and the All Blacks square off at Soldier Field. That last sentence may seem confusing but I’m going to do my utmost to unpack all of the major concepts of rugby.

Vikings at Bears SPOOKY Prediction: Who ya gonna call? JAY CUTLER!

Trick or Treat: The struggling Bears host the 5-1 Minnesota Vikings for a Monday night Halloween special. Jay Cutler returns to the lineup to face a Vikings team coming off their first loss of the season. I am not sure why I am liking the Bears chances in this one, it will either be a TRICK- they will continue to suck and the Vikings have a bounce back game; or TREAT- we see a “good Jay” play tonight and Minnesota begins to catch the Loser bug. Here are the “Treats” for success for tonight’s games. More Targets to Jeffery....
