Bobby is the former Founder and Chairman of United Sports Fans of America (USFA), a not-for-profit fan club formed and operational in the late '80s/early '90s and dedicated to sports fan advocacy, voice and perspective. Bobby edited and wrote for the weekly USFA Sports Fan Newsletter for 7 years. This was during the pre-Internet era and pre-proliferation of sports fan blogs and followings such as we have with the Bleacher Report. Bobby's passion for sports dates back to his childhood in the early '60s. Bobby's first sports hero was Wilt Chamberlain. Bobby gains his inspiration from the likes of Frank DeFord, Peter Gammons and the old Chicago Sports Writers round table; those who take it to an art form.
