THURS­DAY THOUGHTS TIME TO PUT A LID ON IT

Chicago Sun-Times - - Quick Hits Sports -

Re­minder to Cubs fans: An­dre Daw­son in a Montreal Ex­pos cap on his Hall of Fame plaque doesn’t di­min­ish his ac­com­plish­ments as a Cub. For Cubs fans seek­ing some form of val­i­da­tion, well, they should be fa­mil­iar with the con­cept of wait­ing till . . .

† Cubs fans should save any true out­rage over the Daw­son cap plaque flap for the day when Ron Santo goes into the Hall in a White Sox hat.

† Good for Bulls sec­ond-year guard Der­rick Rose be­ing named to the rookie/sopho­more game for NBA All-Star Week­end. Bet­ter — and more ap­pro­pri­ate — would be be­ing named to a spot in the real All-Star Game. Well, as real as that con­test is.

† Con­do­lences to Con­nie Kowal, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Chicago Base­ball Mu­seum, on the death of his fa­ther, judge Ed­ward Kowal.

† Bad pun alert (the next ‘‘good pun’’ alert will be the first): If the Indianapol­is Colts had lost the AFC Cham­pi­onship Game on Sun­day, Su­per Bowl XLIV be­tween New Orleans and New York could have been billed as that old El­ton John tune ‘‘Beignets and the Jets.’’

† Speak­ing of the Su­per Bowl, Kim Kar­dashian is co-host­ing — with Holly Madi­son and Rose­lyn Sanchez — the sev­enth an­nual Leather & Laces Cel­e­bra­tion on Feb. 5 at Mi­ami’s Paris The­atre. In­for­ma­tion is avail­able at www.leatherand­laces.com. This seems like rea­son­able jus­ti­fi­ca­tion to run a photo of Saints run­ning back Reg­gie Bush’s girl­friend, Kar­dashian (with Madi­son and Sanchez pic­tures on­line).

MICHAEL HEIMAN~GETTY IM­AGES

Kim Kar­dashian will be at the Su­per Bowl. So will Reg­gie Bush (on the phone in the photo). Pre­sum­ably she’ll be par­ty­ing the night be­fore the game while he rests up to play for the Saints.
