About

Born and raised in Chicago, as a child of the 80's I had the great fortune of growing up when nearly all of our franchises were at their peak. While unfortunately much of that luster is gone now, my devotion to all things sports never faded. My first love has always been and will always be baseball, and even though I'm a die-hard White Sox fan, I do care enough about the game that I enjoy following the progress of other teams (even those not-so-cuddly losers on the North Side). I also have a great interest in basketball, football and hockey, and as a University of Illinois grad-- I love following my Fighting Illini.

After torturing my friends, ex-girlfriends, and roommates with my incessant rants about sports, it's time that I turned it into something constructive. Enjoy my occasionally ridiculous musings.

    This one is very personal to me. It is about a wonderful children's stoy and grassroots movement benefitting kids who play for the love of the game.

    I encourage you to take the time to check it out.

    For my 400th article, I decided to tackle a subject that is near and dear to my heart.

    I would greatly appreciate it if you could take the time to read it and comment. I think it's something very important for us to recognize, particularly in light of today's Civil Rights game.

    Thanks, Bob
