FAVORITE SPORTS MOMENT
22 outs into game 6 of the 2003 NLCS at Wrigley … just before all Hell broke loose.
ONE THING LISTENERS MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU
I actually prefer cats over dogs … don’t tell anyone.
ONE TRADE YOU’D LIKE TO HAVE BACK
I turned down free tickets and a ride to Milwaukee to go watch the Cubs vs. Astros play a Hurricane Ike makeup game back in 2008. I decided instead to play pickup basketball with a few of my friends. Of course, Carlos Zambrano ended up throwing a no hitter that night … and I ended up with a sprained ankle. Bad trade.
