    Comcast SportsNet Chicago is rerunning the old original TV shows starring Bill Gleason, Bill Jauss, Rick Telander and Ben Bentley.

    An episode is running right now.

    . . . from which Loopy and the Dwarf could take lessons in communicating, rather than pontificating.

    It's pretty cool actually. It's a mix of the conversion plus "Pop Up Video," such as putting up the current price of Bears tickets when they're all bitching that it now costs $29 a head to go to a game (this was in 1991). Also, it's funny watching a relatively young Rick Telander and realizing that if the show came back, he'd probably be in the Jauss role.

    Speaking of which, Jauss' kid (if you can call someone his age a "kid") is Dave Jauss, the Mets' bench coach: http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/mets/tag/_/name/bill-jauss

    (Note to ESPN: Dave Jauss was talking about Joe Mooshil, another Sportswriters on TV regular, not Joe "Musso.")

    Easy . . . we're fortunate the archives still exist, to demonstrate to punks and yahoos how civil
    top-drawer sports conversation can be conducted in a public forum, rather than indulging in little else than yelling and agenda-advancing.

    Always glad to help.

    The greatest sports-talk format show ever done in any electronic media.

    It was one of the first shows I watched regularly when we got cable -- those guys were nothing like my family, but it's what I envisioned an old-school midwestern family being like. I wish our area CSN was showing it.

    Bill Gleason is a dead ringer for every one of my wife's uncles, except they don't smoke cigars.
