Tony Horner and Chicagoland Sports Appearance Connection

I meet and feature a lot of athletes and celebrities here. Today, I highlight one of the many folks responsible.

Tony Horner is the founder and president of Chicagoland Sports Appearance Connection (CSAC), a fantastic site for listings of athlete appearances in the area. It's well-organized and very thorough.

Tony is a great guy, too. After only a few times of seeing him at conventions, I was greeted personally by Tony. That is a nice touch, especially considering the thousands of people he meets. Since I usually only want a picture, as opposed to an autograph, sometimes I even get a special deal. Either way, his prices are fair and the athletes he brings are always popular.

I recently attended the Midwest Sports Buffet, which featured a few athletes, including former Chicago Bulls 3x champ Bill Cartwright. Tony was running that area and knew I just wanted a picture. He said I could wait until the end and Bill would stand up (he has bad knees and couldn't go up and down all day). I appreciated the thought, but any picture would be fine. Still, that is the kind of service Tony provides.
