I'm Just Saying | The power of the gambling dollar dictates a lot of who and what we watch on NCAAF Saturday and NFL Sunday. For example, I had a monetary interest in a game on Sunday, (which I lost), so I hardly watched the New York Giants beat my hometown team, the Chicago Bears.

I'm Just Saying | The NFL had a good week in a year where protests, political debates, the Chicago Cubs, plus a few other things contributed to a ratings drop for the league. So on Monday the accolades were over the top after some good football games this past weekend.

I'm Just Saying | The Cubs are finally World Champions after 108 years of losing and it still hasn’t sunk in yet for many people. Theo Epstein is already getting ready for the GM meetings and onward to 2017.

I'm Just Saying | The Chicago Cubs are down 3-2 to the Cleveland Indians in the World Series. Let me be the first to congratulate them on coming all the way back and winning the Series, or maybe we didn’t get it done and better luck next year. Now let’s get back next year!

I'm Just Saying | As a life-long Chicagoan, when I write a column for GamingToday, a national publication, I try not to lean too much toward Chicago stories because I want to be fair. But right now the biggest story in sports is the Chicago Cubs vs. the Cleveland Indians in the World Series. Both cities and teams are hungry for a baseball championship.
