A slow day, heading into a busy weekend. The Cubs have the day off.â†µ
4:30 pm, CSN Chicago: Bears Blitz. A preview of Sunday’s game vs. the Cowboys.â†µ
6:30 pm, ESPN: College football, Cincinnati at North Carolina State. Not generally of interest to Midwesterners, this is included because it’s the only football game on today.â†µ
7 pm, CSN Chicago: White Sox vs. Twins. The Deep Dish doesn’t have to overemphasize the importance of this game.â†µ
7 pm, MLB Network: Padres at Cardinals. The Cardinals may be about done, but the Padres are in a tight race in the NL West against the Giants, who they lead by only half a game going into today’s action.
