Favorite Sports Moment
Going to the outdoor hockey game at Soldiers Field in January—2 degrees with a -10 windchill…all worth it, as the Blackhawks thumped the Penguins 5-1.
One Thing Listeners Might Not Know About You
I am an avid golfer, typically shoot around 93-96…and usually looking for a twosome or threesome to “join up.”
One Trade You’d Like to Have Back
My mom calling me when I was at Illinois and asking me what she should do with the thousands of baseball cards that I had stored up in suitcases; I said—“throw them out”…”I’ll never do anything with them.” The collection included at least a half dozen Mickey Mantle rookie cards—in perfect condition,, the latter alone worth about $150,000. The collection today would be valued at least @ $250,000….cie la vie!!
