It was a pleasure working for Brian Myre and WISN in those days and I have missed the opportunity to share my thoughts, experiences and views on sports (mainly, my passion for baseball) as well as the interaction that was encouraged with the readers of my column. I regularly received feedback on my “comments” and took full advantage of developing correspondence relationships with many folks around the country. Opinions and loyalties tied to teams / athletes can spark good natured “debate” which opens fans to new ideas. On a selfish front, a creative outlet has been missing in my life since those days; a void which I hope this venue will fill.
With these thoughts in mind I will begin publishing posts containing “commentary” very similar in content to my old “Comments” columns, calendar events of interest both local to the Chicago-land area and nationally when feasible, tips, quips, quotes, reviews, some “shameless plugs”, as well as news and views of my new love 1858 Rules Vintage Base Ball.
Please feel free to comment and join in the fun!
