Jerry (Angelo) the Sun-Tanned GM : Lyrics (to the tune of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer)

Jerry, the sun-tanned GM
has a very shiny tan.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say he glows.

All of the other GMs
laugh at him and trade him bums.
They never let poor Jerry
draft for any Pro-Bowl gems.

Then one dismal Tuesday morn
The McCaskeys came to say:
"Jerry with the Bears a fright,
won't you hand in your keys tonight?"

Then all the Bears fans razzed him
as they shouted out in relief,
Jerry the sun-tanned GM,
he is gone and history!

    Walter "Butch/Bearstradamus" Brzeski

    Life story in 50 words or so: Born in Bucktown to a middle-class family and has lived in Chicago his entire life, now residing on the far Northwest Side. Attended St. Hedwig, Lane Tech, Triton College and Eastern Illinois University. Has worked myriad jobs in the city, including many years as a bartender; is now a substitute teacher. Currently, is working on finishing his Masters in Education along with studying for his National Strength and Conditoning Association (NCSA) certification test ..................................................................................... Self-description: An avid sports fan, he describes himself as an average, "300-level guy." "I've never been a rich man, I've never been a poor man; I've been in-between." He is as much of a through-and-through Chicagoan as one will meet. He is proud of his Chicago accent and works to give back to the community. A humble man, he values a strong work ethic, which his dad instilled in him............ Writing experiences: Describes himself as the "most opinionated person in Chicago." He tries to get the average guy's voice out there, modeling his writing after the conversations he had with patrons when he was a Wrigleyville bartender. "I'm trying to let people know what is going on. Most of the things I write about, people are thinking about." He considers himself the voice for the working Chicagoan who doesn't think his opinion can be heard. His favorite topics to write about are sports and observations about what's happening in Chicago, and the two often mesh................................................................................... Unique traits: He attended EIU on a football scholarship as an offensive lineman and has been an athlete and sports fan all his life. A favorite childhood memory is racing home from school to catch Cubs games. His house is decorated with Chicago sports memorabilia; his favorite item is a letter written to him by former Bear Dan Hampton. He hopes to one day open an upscale sports bar (in Chicago, of course) and put his collection on display. — By Dan Waters, Tribune reporter
