Feb 02, 2016 No Comments by

Even as they grew older (Jerry) and played with less of the energy they once brought to the stage – there was never any doubt that the Fat Man still rocked, and right from the start – Half-Step let us know this was gonna be a Jerry show. Being so close to all those colleges, […]

Chicago Cardinals Old School NFL

Jan 22, 2016 No Comments

For most of their existence, they played at Comiskey Park, the home of the White Sox. As South Siders, we rooted for the usually hapless Cardinals.
