Black and Blue all over: ESPN Chicago arrives

Posted by's Kevin Seifert

We teased you Sunday night with some (bad) pop culture humor. Monday morning, we can tell you what's coming.

Actually, it's already here.

ESPN Chicago -- the Web site.

Yes, Monday is the debut for an ESPN-styled site devoted solely to Chicago sports. Some of the best writers in the ESPN stable -- Gene Wojciechowski, Wayne Drehs, Scoop Jackson and more -- will be contributing regular pieces on the Bears, Cubs, White Sox and Big 10 college sports as well. And Jeff Dickerson, who you might know from ESPN 1000 radio, is writing a Bears blog.

This won't change the frequency and tone of the Bears coverage here on the Black and Blue blog. Consider it another layer at our disposal. I'll do my best to link to the best of the Bears coverage on the site, and from time to time some of our Bears discussions will appear there as well. So check it out.

In the meantime, let's catch up on the weekend and start our sprint to the NFL draft.
