About me

Gender Male
Location Chicago, duh
Introduction I've been a Cubs fan since I was a kid. Since before astro turf. Since before infomercials and Blackberries and SUVs and the DH and $4-a-gallon-gas and CDs that I break a fingernail trying to open. Since Ron Santo, Fergie Jenkins and Ernie Banks. I came out of the womb saying, "Looks like a nice day for a ballgame. Let's play two."
Interests I work, sleep, eat, and watch baseball. Once in a while if I'm lucky I play hide the salami with the missus. During a commercial break.
Favorite Movies Bull Durham without a question. Anything with Diane Lane. Ferris Buhler's Day Off, The Natural, The Odd Couple.
Favorite Music Bill Murray singing Take Me Out to the Ballgame at Wrigley, A Dying Cubs Fan's Last Request, Go Cubs Go, everything that ever came out of Buddy Guy, Clapton when he was with Cream, Van Halen, Ernestine Anderson, and Mozart.
Favorite Books Ball Four, all of Pat Conroy, The Cubs by Glenn Stout, Casey at the Bat, The Complete Works of Ring Lardner.

Will the Cubs win the World Series this year?
