  • Lester On Fire With Deadline Near, Bears Go To Camp, NFC North Preview: Vikings

    in Sports

    The Cubs took 2 out of 3 against the Rockies, thanks to a dominant performance on the mound from Jon Lester.  As they head to Milwaukee for a 4 game series vs the Brewers, their bats and bullpen still need help.  With the trade deadline one day away, other teams are making moves while the Cubs stand pat. 


    The Bears began training camp today hoping to build on the chemistry that old teammates and new built during minicamps and OTAs.  Can John Fox unite this ragtag group and bring them back to Soldier Field ready to surprise the NFL?


    Tonight I'll also begin taking a closer look at the NFC North rivals, starting with the Minnesota Vikings.  What can we expect from the purple and gold in 2015?
