Chris Pennant

Chris Pennant


Chris Pennant is an old-schooler in a youngblood's body: the sacrifice bunt is more valuable than a home run, center field should be referred to as "the garden," and Roos are the best baseball cleats of all time. His greatest regret? He never made it to a game at Old Comiskey Park. Second greatest? He only went to one Sox game in 2005--against the Royals.

I'm one class away from receiving my B.A. in Journalism from Bradley University, and I've just started the precarious journey of "job hunting". As a lifelong South Sider from Chicago, my favorite team is the Chicago White Sox and as the song goes, " whoever plays the Cubs." Love all sports(even hockey can be exciting), but baseball is my first love. Teams: White Sox, Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks, Bradley Braves, and the Fighting Illini.

Oh, and Sundays, contrary to popular opinion, are for bowling.
