Slammin' Sam on Sports Media Thursday Edition

Today, Slammin’ Sam on Sports Media brings you a variety of links. Hockey even makes an appearance! Speaking of hockey’s rare appearance, if you have suggestions as far as sites where I can brush up on my slap shot knowledge, or if you have any other suggestions as far as what you would like to see on Free Keon, please leave us a comment below. Thanks for reading!

I’ll start with the most relevant stories and move down the scale. Remember, though, just because it’s of lesser relevance does not make it less interesting.

First, instead of taking a step forward this season, Bulls guard Derrick Rose admits that so far his play has gone in the other direction. Could it be that his ankle is still healing? Maybe it’s his extended jump-shooting sessions in practice that have caused him to lose his rhythm. Either way, Chicago needs its floor general to get back on track, starting tonight against the Lakers.

What do you know? It’s a hockey story. This one’s about the Blackhawks, and from the sound of things, there could be plenty more where this came from. Things are finally looking up for this Original Six franchise. As David Haugh writes, it’s all in the details.

We’ll return to Chicago momentarily. In the meantime, here’s an update on baseball’s next big thing, Stephen Strasburg, who will be on the mound Saturday to try and propel his team to Arizona Fall League glory.

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow could be lessening in relevance or simply biding his time. Here is a pair of articles at each end of the spectrum.

Five years after the Pacers and Pistons had a brawl for the NBA ages, Mike Wells of The Indianapolis Star looks back and also examines the aftermath.

Finally, in a season that started with Bears fans giddy and now has them leaning heavily toward glum, Lovie Smith’s team rounds out Thursday’s links. Apparently they are all business now, as evidenced by the team’s decision to limit NBC access on Sunday night.

  1. I would all be for more hockey coverage as soon as they eliminate all franchises south of the Mason-Dixon Line and bring back the glowing TV puck that Fox had for a few years. Too many teams and too hard to watch. Seriously though, I was really into hockey as a kid but then when Nashville got a team I figured it was time to stop paying attention.
