Bears lost in the shuffle on a busy day

Yesterday was a busy day for Chicago sports, and none of it involved the Chicago Bears.

The Blackhawks signed Detroit star forward Marian Hossa and center John Madden from the New Jersey Devils. Both players should be great additions to a young team on the rise. Meanwhile, the Bulls got worse, losing Ben Gordon to the Detroit Pistons. I know Gordon had some serious shortcomings on defense, but who, exactly, is going to score for the Bulls now?

On the baseball beat, my White Sox continued their recent hot play, beating the Indians 6-2 to take their fourth series in a row. It was also the sixth straight win for the Sox. I’m sure the Cubs did something, too, but I’m not interested in whatever it was.

It was interesting to see a day where the Bears didn’t at least merit a semi-big story. It’s been a busy offseason for the Bears. And besides the fact that it looks like there’ll be no Plaxico Burress on the way, there wasn’t much else to report from Halas Hall.
