Wake Up Call: 8-10am Wednesday
I’m a former football and baseball player that has seen my glory days come and go and now focus my attention on talking and writing about the sports and athletes I love and hate.
I love everything that accompanies athletics and competition. I truly believe that sports are the greatest reality show on television, and provide vivid examples of excellence, perseverance, resolve, and determination on a daily basis. The passion I have for sports came about from watching many games with my dad at a young age.
One of the many great things about Chicago is the passion that the fans bring to their favorite teams and players. Through good and bad, and there has been a lot of bad, I will always be a loyal devotee to my squads. I’m also a big fan of college football and find Saturday’s in the fall to be some of the best days of the year.
