Halas Hall happenings, Backboard comebacks, and an all-time shhedule for the week

This lively Wednesday episode begins with a Chicago sports minute that turns into five or six minutes on the turnover at Halas Hall and the larger cohort of cheapskates that own Chicago teams. Then it’s on to the Sony Open, where Andy and Brendan delight in the field at another one of the great early-year stops. The backboards should return, but softness may as well, mitigating their usage at Waialae. The schedule for the week features the triumphant return of televised golf from Australia, as well as an overnight option in Singapore. You could watch golf all round the clock this week. News concludes with a shakeup in the honorary starters at the Masters and some comments on the loss of Tim Rosaforte.
