re: Check in if you’re kinda burned out on fantasy football - hoopsgalore

re: CFB Week 4 Betting Thread - hoopsgalore
[quote]Oregon -6 at WSU: WSU got a lot of cred for upsetting Wisconsin, but Oregon's speed and wide-open offense is the polar opposite of Wisconsin. I don't think WSU has the athletes to match up with Oregon, regardless of Oregon's prior struggles on the Palouse.[/quote] Also, it is worth noting ...

[quote]Minnesota looks like the only competent B1G West team right now.[/quote] Not difficult to look competent when you've played the worst FBS team, one of the worst FCS teams, and the worst P5 team - combined 0-9 record. [quote]Twelfth year senior Tanner Morgan should feast.[/quote] "Fea...

re: Where to go before and after UW Badgers game - hoopsgalore
[quote]I love it when some people trot this out there. As if we're the only school where the students party before the game. Amazingly just about every other top tier B1G and SEC school's students find a way to be to the game at or near kickoff.[/quote] Trot what out there...? I wasn't even atte...

re: Chicago Recs - hoopsgalore
With kids, I'd absolutely recommend Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder after strolling through the zoo. They (and you) would love the Pizza Pot Pie. My wife and I try getting there once each month or so. Pretty unique, and tasty as hell. We always see plenty of families. Otherwise, can't go wrong...

re: Fancy restaurant near Chicago Theater - hoopsgalore
I'd anticipate you'll have to call ahead with a group that size, but my recommendation is to find a spot in River North. - Bavette's and Ciccio Mio are next door to one another and two of the better restaurants in the area. It's about a 15-minute walk from the Theatre, but you get a nice view lo...

re: Downtown Chicago Eats? - hoopsgalore
[quote]Any recommendations specifically for best pizza in town?[/quote] Guessing by "Chicago-style" pizza, you're meaning deep dish or pan. Best you'll find in the city right now is Milly's Pizza in the Pan. My ultimate preference is tavern-style, and you can't go wrong with Michael's Original....
