Floyd Mayweather confirmed on Friday that his highly anticipated fight with rival Manny Pacquiao is finally happening – albeit a couple years too late. Mayweather and Pacquiao were in their early 30s when the fight was first schedule for 2010 but are now 37 and 36, respectively. And because Pacquiao lost twice in 2012, the match no longer has the same shine and significance it once had. Will we still watch on May 2? Of course. The bout is expecte...

There’s a scene in the first “Treehouse of Horror” episode on “The Simpsons” where Bart shrugs off Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” and tells Lisa “that wasn’t scary, not even for a poem.” Lisa’s defends the classic tale by pointing out, “Well, it was written in 1845, maybe people were easier to scare back then.”

Just because you're a jock doesn't mean you don't have a romantic side. Athletes get in touch with their feelings too from time to time, even if we rarely see it publicly. And with Valentine's Day now upon us, it seems this would be a good time for them to take a break from their macho and ultra-competitive personas and give us a peek at their romantic side. Tribune’s Luis Gomez asked Chicago sports stars to name their favorite “chick flicks” ...

Chicago-focused "Empire" story, in honor of tonight's season finale.
The love triangle on Fox’s hit series “Empire” was ignited when Empire Entertainment head of A&R Anika Calhoun said she was flying to Chicago to work on a contract with singer Lana Del Rey, except she came back earlier than expected and caught her fiance and Empire CEO, Lucious Lyon, who is dying of ALS, in bed with his ex-wife, Cookie Lyon, who was recently released from prison.

There are few things more important to me than credibility. So when Pete Wentz told me Fall Out Boy wasn’t getting back together, only for Fall Out Boy to announce it was reuniting the same day my story ran in the Tribune and RedEye, I was furious.
