I’m a 26 year-old Chicagoan, born and raised. This may come as a shocker, but I’m a HUGE Chicago sports fan. I give my dad most of the credit for my love of the sports world. He has worked security at both the United Center and U.S. Cellular Field for over the past 11 years as a part-time gig (I mean, who wouldn’t want to get paid to witness the 90s with the Bulls, the White Sox World Series and two Blackhawk Stanley Cups), not to mention his performances on the couch in my family room during sporting events.
I first dipped my toes in the sports world in sixth grade, prior to this I was a bit of a diva – refusing to get dirty or wear pants for that matter (skirts and ruffle socks ONLY). I gave a valiant effort, but let’s be real I am no Michael Jordan, thus deciding, if I couldn’t play the games I was going to be as close to the game as possible.
For undergrad, I chose to go to DePaul University because I wanted to be a city girl andmajored in Journalism with a focus in Broadcast. Ultimately, I want to be a sports reporter. During school, I had the opportunity to work with great people at both ESPN Radio as well as ABC 7 in the sports department. I was so fortunate to work with Mark Giangreco, a Chicago Sports Broadcasting legend.
Now after all is said and I done I like to give my followers sports shorts from this lady’s point of view.
