I have been covering the local sports scene for the last 30 years and in that time have seen more games and events then anybody. I’ve been privileged to have covered 9 local championships (6 by the Bulls, and one each by the Bears, White Sox & Blackhawks). I have also covered 3 no hitters and one perfect game and had the honor of covering the best basketball player ever on a daily basis. Not only do I love reporting on sports but I equally enjoy participating (Basketball, Baseball, Golf, Tennis…etc.) You name it and I love it. I’m a huge movie goer who also likes to travel and I own a piece of a local minor league baseball team as well as a piece of a local restaurant.

It’s not an elimination game Wednesday night, but it’s still do or die for the Blackhawks.
Talk about bad timing for the Blackhawks to have their first three-game losing streak all season.
Following a near-perfect regular season and a first round playoff win over Minnesota, the Blackhawks for the first time are facing adversity.
If I had a nickel for every time we have asked Tom Thibodeau when Derrick Rose is coming back, I would have a whole lot of nickels (which still doesn’t amount to much).
A few days ago the veteran left-hander experienced a twinge of discomfort in his throwing elbow during a bullpen session and immediately was checked out by medical personnel.
As a free agent, Scott Hairston had options, but there was no question in his mind that he wanted to play for the Cubs.
Talk about a swing man on your pitching staff. That’s exactly the role that Hector Santiago will fill on this year’s White Sox team.
The Cubs left-fielder had medical reasons for turning down a trade to San Francisco last year.
ubs owner Tom Ricketts would make an excellent politician because he can talk a long time without saying much. That was the case Sunday when Ricketts met the media and pretty much brushed away all questions regarding a deal with both the city and the neighborhood involving Wrigley Field.
Paul Konerko is the last of the Mohicans, meaning he’s the final member of the 2005 World Series championship team that is still playing for the White Sox.
Brent Lillibridge only signed a minor league deal with the Cubs, but he has a very good chance of making the Major League roster.
