Les Grobstein passes away
« on: January 17, 2022, 08:55:59 AM »
Sad news this morning. Quirky but endearing Chicago sports legend. Came really close to meeting up with him and his longtime GF at a George Thorogood concert in Elk Grove last summer. Wish I had. Never got to meet him. I’m Facebook friends with him and his GF on Facebook and when I posted a pic of me and my son at the concert, I got a notification from Les saying Kathy wanted us to meet with them. I looked around for a bit, but the crowd was rather large and I knew my then 6 year old probably wouldn’t want to stay the entire show so I didn’t make an all out effort to find them.

Bit of an oddball, but seems like everyone that knew him loved him. The voice of the Chicago sports Everyman has been silenced. 
Me: “I have a small bit of concern about Caleb Williams.” Them: “What an asshole!”

Were you a regular caller to the overnight show?
Made Dominic/Plaza, and now Tempo, my bitch. Went from board troll to real life villain to "soulless ghoul" yet, per Tempo, "brilliant" and "fairly reasonable." Mark Carman: "The Whitlock!...Caleb Williams failed Wayne Whitlock."

Not my crowd. No.
