So Gene Wojochoiwewoasksie at ESPN wrote an article about how Chicago is the new CRAZY-town. The points about Ozzie Guillen, Carlos Zambrano and Cedric Benson are all fine. Even though almost every other major sports city has similar characters, but whatever.
But things quickly degrade into what can only be called madness. Or pointlessness.
• And, oh, the Cubs have the best record in baseball.
This is crazy...how?
• The No. 2 pick in the 2008 WNBA draft, Sylvia Fowles, lasted exactly five Chicago Sky games before she injured her knee.
A WNBA reference?!?!?! I take it all back, Chicago is cwazy! In other news, the Chicago MLS team, the Fire, scored a goal during a game.
• Chicago was named one of four finalists for the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Cool, sure. Crazy? No. It's also eight years away, when probably half the other crap in this article will be passe.
• A former high school hoops player who has a home in Chicago won a big race. Maybe you've heard of him: Barack Obama.
