The only thing I don't like about Opening Day is the overanalysis of a single game that counts as just one of 162.

If you read Sunday's edition of The Beacon News, you probably noticed that legendary sportswriter Bill Kindt predicted an All-Chicago World Series.
The White Sox still have one more roster move to make before Opening Day on Monday. The last spot in the bullpen will go to either Nick Masset or Ehren Wasserman.
It looks like White Sox outfielder Jerry Owens is going to start the season on the DL. For Brian Anderson, it is time to step up.
I'm amazed at how many people actually think I'm good at filling out the NCAA tournament brackets. The evidence suggests otherwise.
I saw the story on the Web on Wednesday. I read it again in a competing newspaper on Friday.
It's the news we've all been waiting for! Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama has selected North Carolina to win the national championship!
Eric Gordon's line versus Arkansas Friday night: 3-for-15 on field goals, 0-for-6 on 3s, 2-for-6 on free throws, 8 points.
I'm having trouble filling out my bracket this year. Call it indifference.
During halftime of Illinois' last home game on March 9, someone wearing Chief Illiniwek garb made a brief appearance in the aisle between Sections B and C at the Assembly Hall.
Historically, Illinois has been very, very good in the Big Ten Tournament.
I didn't think Illinois could beat Purdue, but the Illini somehow pulled it off.
With 4:52 remaining in Thursday's Big Ten Conference tournament game, Illinois led Penn State 62-52. And announcer Brent Musberger declared the Illini had "taken control" of the game.
Uhhh, Brent? Have you watched the Illini at all this year? I know you have, and you should know better.
From Sox GM Kenny Williams:
Like a lot of Sox fans, I figured trading Joe Crede to clear a spot for Josh Fields would be the sensible thing to do this spring. But now I've decided otherwise.
When Brandon Lloyd was a wide receiver at the University of Illinois, he was
notorious for drawing "excessive celebration" penalties after touchdowns.
Congratulations go out to the University of Illinois club hockey team on a perfect season.
Every season, the White Sox have a dumb slogan that they include as part of their TV ad campaign. This year is no exception.
The White Sox announced Tuesday that former Cy Young Award winner Steve Stone will take over as the color analyst for the team's radio broadcasts this season. Chris Singleton has left the Sox in order to take a job at ESPN.
As I've mentioned before in this space, I'm counting the days until Opening
Day of the baseball season.
