Six Old Styles and a Cubs Game

Good evening, Chicago!  My name's Tonzi and I'm new to the Chi City Sports crew, so please let me introduce myself. I was raised in New England and recently moved to Chicago from Washington, DC.  You may hear me ramble a bit about the state of the Red Sox or how the Redskins will never make the playoffs again, but I'll keep my homerism to a minimum (maybe).  Besides, I wasn't brought on to talk about my spo ...
