I have been friends with Tom Skalski since the first grade. Oh sure, we drifted apart a bit after college, but we have since reconnected and I am very happy abut that. Today, Tom becomes my second Sacred Heart School mate to make an appearance in Friendly Encounters (Mary Jovanovich Brazzale was the first).
I have had many great laughs and fun time with Tom. Hanging with him at a Cubs or Blackhawks game is a riot. We reminisce about Tom's greatest fights, our high school hijinx and other silliness. Tom also usually gives me the update on his newest jerseys (now totaling well over 100).
At the most recent Hawks game we attended, Tom surprised me with his Friendly Encounter. So without further adieu. I present two Chicago legends...my buddy Tom and Mr. T.
Tom and Mr. T. in Chicago, IL-Mid 00's.
