"You've got to be willing to get a cut in your face to get rewarded at the end of the night. If you don't want to do it, you're not going to win the Stanley Cup." -- Blackhawks coach Denis Savard after last night's 1-0 loss to the Blue Jackets.

"Woof!" -- Siberian huskies at tomorrow's Tails on the Trails "sled pulling, skijorring, and speed demonstrations" at the Morton Arboretum. Skijorring is when dogs someone who's on skis, FYI.

"My controversial advocacy of Tom Green's Dadaistic anti-comedy Freddy Got Fingered tore our nation apart, turning brother against brother, cat against dog, and Baldwin against Carradine.

"Presto! We have a correlation between books and dumbitude (smartitude too)!" -- Virgin Griffith, who mapped out the average SAT score for the 100 most popular books on Facebook

"I don't know the man, I wouldn't know him if he walked in the door, I don't have a 17-year-relationship with him." -- Hillary Clinton on the picture of her and Tony Rezko

Eh, we couldn't keep it up with the quotes, but eight people, including three Cook County employees and two ministers, were arrested today for stealing $1.6 million from the County, including $500,000 from tax payers.
