This is a regular series in which I attempt to combine my lifelong obsession with bubblegum cards with my interest in celebrities.
Tomorrow is Opening Day in baseball. This looks to be an interesting year on both sides of Chicago. The Cubs are still in the early stages of a massive rebuilding process, while the White Sox are contending hopefuls.
To honor both teams, I wanted o be as fair as I could be. What could be more fair than to have one guy represent both teams? As a matter of fact, that one guy is Buddy Guy, Chicago Blues legend.
Buddy is one of the all-time great musicians. He's a great guitarist, a great showman and a great ambassador for the Chicago music scene. He's like music royalty and he is Chicago's very own.
If the Cubs and Sox play as smooth as Buddy does, it will be a great summer. If the teams start to hit sour notes, you can always go to Buddy Guy's (ironically, about halfway between Wrigley and Cellular Field) for fine blues and tasty southern Cajun food!.
