Good morning Chicago Sports fans. This week figures to be an important week with the Chicago Bulls opening their regular season against the Miami Heat on Tuesday. The Chicago Bears return to practice this week as they begin to make their preparations to face the Green Bay Packers a week from today. The Chicago Blackhawks look to snap their losing ways. And, may be just may be the Chicago Cubs will get closer to naming their new manager.
With that said, time to hit the morning links.
