I was born and raised in north central Illinois and have been a fan of the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, Chicago Bulls, and WWF/WWE as long as I can remember. I graduated Illinois State University in 2003 with a degree in Finance, so I am also a big fan of my alma mater.
The highlight of my sports life was meeting a good majority of the 2005 Chicago Cubs team after a game against the Washington Nationals. I was fortunate enough to meet players such as Cubs legend and Hall of Famer Ron Santo, Derrek Lee, Aramis Ramirez, Kerry Wood, Mark Prior, Carlos Zambrano, Ryan Dempster, and Nomar Garciaparra, to name a few... Given that I was just an avid fan hanging outside the locker room, I was impressed by their courtesy and willingness to take pictures and shoot the breeze.
