|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?
