It was mid-September when we had a few days of panic based on End Days predictions surrounding the Large Hadron Collider. Mercifully, those gloom and doom rumors didn't turn out to be true.
So while it may be colder than it ever should be, take heart Chicago. You're still alive and reading inconsequential sports blogs.
The following originally ran Sept. 10:
RIght now, I'm worried about Vince Young.
Right now, I'm worried about Lou Piniella's strained vocal cords.
Right now, I'm worried about Paul Konerko's knee.
But one worry that has subsided completely is the fear that the world will be sucked into a black hole. I awoke this morning, alive and breathing. Matter completely in tact.
No, the Large Hadron Collider didn't end human existence when it was switched on. This was a great relief to us here at Sports Pros(e) and most likely to other people as well.
So it is with great excitement and zest for life that we thank you for your continued readership this morning. We really appreciate it.
