This is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.
Today, I feature two folks I met through the National Pro Fastpitch Chicago Bandits. Jonathan Cimaglio is a fan and Kacy Standohar is the team reporter.
I met Cimags a few years ago at a Bandits game. He is a big time autograph collector. As a "grapher," Cimags is usually in the post-game autograph line, but he also gets signatures from stars of other sports and entertainment fields. He even has his own YouTube channel. Cimags has been an occasional assistant to Johngy's Beat at Bandits games.
Broadcaster and reporter Kacy is one busy and talented lady. In addition to the Bandits, Kacy has worked for the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Chicago Cubs, the Chicago Steel and more, including covering Chicago area high school sports.
My interview with Kacy from last season can be found at On the Beat With Kacy Standohar. It was a real pleasure learning more about her and her responsibilities. It was even more fun watching her all season and getting to know her.
We should enjoy Kacy as much as we can during her time with the Bandits, because she will move on to bigger things. She has talent, intelligence and charisma. She could easily be a broadcaster for any of the major sports teams.
Meanwhile, my bud Cimags is in Minnesota. Hopefully, he will make his yearly trip to Rosemont for a game if the season ever starts and we can catch up.
