Violence on the Mag Mile

Police are investigating two separate crimes that occurred on the Magnificent Mile -- including an armed robbery of a clothing store -- that occurred Wednesday and Tuesday.

The armed robbery occurred about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday at 540 N. Michigan Ave., police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

If this is what is going on the Magnificent Mile; I don't want to even think about what's going on in the outskirts of the city.  Last week someone was shot by police in the street.  Are people getting this desperate that they will take the violence to the most popular spots of the city?  I'd keep an eye on this

Invite Me When I Lose

Funny story of the day comes from Pittsburgh super defensive star James Harrison (the guy who ran back 100 yard run in the Super Bowl and fell out); yes he has recently declined to go to the White House to meet the President, the tradition for the winners of national sport programs.
The reason for his decline is rather funny.  From his blog Harrison notes:
"This is how I feel -- if you want to see the Pittsburgh Steelers, invite us when we don't win the Super Bowl. As far as I'm concerned, he [Obama] would've invited Arizona if they had won."

So Harrison is starting a new crusade in the world or at least his world, where the losing team gets to go greet and meet the President.  Along with that, the losing team takes home the awards, money, and accolades.  This is not a bad idea; it is really going to pay to lose and balances off.  Kids can shake hands that m
uch better when they lose because they will be rewarded; and the winners will only have the gratification that they won; but won no reward.

Thanks Mr. Harrison for this new revolution.  Chicago Funnies will take a new stance on funny news and will now award our Hog Head Dummy (I mean Funny) of the day.  James Harrison the Hog Head Funny of the Day!

Our runner up is John Lackey of the California Angels for throwing two pitches before being tossed out.  Come on down John and meet the Chicago Funnies!
