ESPN Chicago: Bears, Cubs, White Sox and Bulls fans rejoice! Today the cable sports network launched a new website which exclusively covers Chicago sports.

Phil Spector Verdict: Sounds like a movie plot. Music producer Phil Spector was convicted today of murdering actress Lana Clarkson in 2003. The 40-year-old woman died of a gunshot fired into her mouth while seated in the foyer of Spector’s mansion. In a retrial at Los Angeles Superior Court, the jury was unanimous in its verdict of second degree murder.
Phillies Announcer: A beloved voice is gone. Longtime Philadelphia Phillies broadcaster Harry Kalas was found dead in the broadcast booth this afternoon, before a game against the Washington Nationals.
