Mike Ditka will say anything at any time. Bidden, unbidden – it doesn’t matter. Whatever is on his mind will soon be on its way to you. It’s his appeal. It’s his moneymaker.

Not in the McCaskeys’ world ]]>

The answer to the Bears’ multitude of issues is a wild-eyed, few-degrees-off-center coach in northern California.  There’s a good possibility that the 49ers and Jim Harbaugh will divorce after the season.
