City of Chicago Surprised by Draft Move

The City of Chicago is often considered one of the best fan bases in the world. Even during long periods of down years, fans continue to support the teams. After a very poor 2016 season, many Bears fans were excited about the 2017 NFL draft as it provided the Bears with a lot of opportunity to fill in holes on both sides of the ball.

 

The morning after the first day of the 2017 NFL Draft, many Bears fans and citizens of Chicago have woken up very surprised by the move that the Bears made with their first round pick. Many different news articles are heavily criticizing the Bears for trading up from the number 3 overall pick to number 2 to select quarterback Mitch Trubisky (http://www.foxsports.com/nfl/gallery/nfl-draft-chicago-bears-mitchell-trubisky-skip-bayless-shannon-sharpe-042817).

 

While some teams were rumored to be interested in taking the quarterback, the Bears appear to have overpaid drastically for the move. The Bears ended up trading away the number 3 overall pick, their third and fourth rounds picks in 2017, and their 2018 third round pick to the 49ers. The 49ers ended up taking Solomon Thomas with the third overall pick and drafted Reuben Foster late in the first round by using the Bears picks to trade back up. Most critics also agree that the 49ers had a very successful first day at the draft.

 

While the Bears have needed a quarterback for a long time, the move is still surprising. The Bears have a lot of spots that need to be filled and could have used the extra picks to add depth to the roster. Furthermore, they just signed Mike Glennon to a expensive contract for the next two to three years and could have easily waited another year to pick a top QB. At this point, it remains to be seen how successful the move will be.

 

Relax, Chicago! Sasha Was Studying For A Test And Missed Dad’s Farewell Address

The beautiful city of Chicago was the scene of President Obama’s farewell address to the nation on Tuesday night. There in his hometown, Barack Obama bid an emotional good-bye after eight years in office. He paid a moving tribute to the First Lady Michelle “wife, mother of my children and best friend.”

 

President Obama then discussed his daughters, Malia and Sasha, calling them amazing young women. “You are smart and you are beautiful. But more importantly, you are kind and you are thoughtful and you are full of passion.”

 

It was quite moving, and Malia wiped tears from her eyes. Sasha, however, was not in attendance to hear her father’s wonderful speech. That is when her absence became quite noticeable during the farewell address.

 

The internet went wild with speculation about the Obama’s youngest daughter.

 

Where was Sasha, and why would she miss a huge milestone like this one?

 

Social media sites like Twitter were ablaze with questions, under the hashtag #WhereIsSasha.

 

Relax, city of Chicago and the rest of the world. Sasha had a good excuse for missing the President’s farewell address.

 

It’s called school and a next day exam, and that, ladies and gentlemen, is the reason the 15-year-old daughter of Barack Obama was missing in action during his good-bye speech in the Windy City. Sasha was busy hitting the books, confirmed CBS News’ Mark Knoller. The White House told Knoller that Sasha did not make the trip to Chicago, and she decided to stay in D.C. for an exam on Wednesday morning. By the way, the test was in science, according to the school website.

 

The Obamas will remain residing in the area until Sasha graduates. She’s a student at Washington, D.C.’s prestigious Sidwell Friends School. Malia and Cheslea Clinton both graduated from Sidwell.
