About the Lady

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.

  1. I like the background and the goal. It came to me recently that maybe I should do a masters in journalism, and in the meantime blog about sports as well. Not a native to Chi-town, but I grew up with MJ in my face during the 90’s. Been loyal ever since. Go Bulls!

  2. I grew up in Chicago, watched many of the games that Chicago teams played. In 1979 I left Chicago moving to a hotter climate. Since living here I have supported the home teams just like I did when living in Chicago. I have read some of your Blog and it is awesome, I have enjoyed your finesse in describing certain Bulls games, that I can close my eyes and visualize the game. In particular the game against the “Miami Heat”, when “King”, as you call him, Lebron James dunked over John Lucas. Wow, I close my eyes and keep seeing that in perfect high definition. Well I say it will be Bulls & The Heat in Eastern conference finals, leaving “Miami” winning!!! Your cousin

  3. Brittany –

    I run a sports blog at nocoastbias.com and was interested in you possibly joining the team. I took a look at your site and I enjoyed your posts and feel you would fit in with our style of writing.

    I launched the site back in April and we’ve already been picked up for syndication with YardBarker/FoxSports.com and our viewership increases each month (90,000+ views in November). I think this could be a great way to increase your exposure even more.

    Let me know what your thoughts are. You can learn more about us by checking out nocoastbias.com or our Facebook Fan Page Facebook.com/NoCoastBias.

    Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
