Brian Urlacher was my first celebrity sighting in Chicago

The  year was 2009. The location was O’Hare International Airport. More specifically: the food court. More specifically: Dunkin Donuts. I ordered my large coffee, 2 sugar, extra skim milk when I heard the man behind me order two elephant ears (Yes, elephant ears. I know they don’t sell them at DD but they sold them... Read more »

Nothing is certain but death and taxes

On Tax Day, I’m reminded of that semester in law school when I took both Sports Law and Tax.  By that point, I was already a CPA so Tax felt like a breeze. But Sports Law, not so much.  I wasn’t sure if a right guard played football or baseball and I’m pretty sure I... Read more »

It could always be worse. You could be a Cowboys fan.
