It's not very often I get to be a fan. While working for a soccer team is the ultimate fan boy's dream, its also a lot of well, work. Those that have watched a Fire away match with me will all tell you the same thing -- either my laptop is a security blanket or I really am glued to it. And that's fine, its what I signed up for.
This year I've been able to leave my work machine behind so I could stand and sing with Section 8 Chicago against nearly 60,000 in Montreal in March and on the blowing front of Lake Ontario in Toronto last month.
Some might think my choice of away trips means I just enjoy traveling to Canada. Those folks would be wrong...
For today I'll be among the 600+ on the ride to Columbus. I haven't left my laptop behind though. Instead, stay tuned to "Always on the Inside" as I live blog throughout the trip to and from Columbus.
Wish me luck as I join Section 8 Chicago's Whiskey Brother's Aught Five Gentleman's Guild, among others, on the seven-hour trek this morning.
Second in the series of "Always on the Inside" promos... This time I dip in the cold tub with Dan Gargan.
For those wondering, it was a shivering 46 degrees and as Dan suggests, I couldn't nail my lines... We shifted to having the old pro speak and me just give the high-brow that I'm so well known for...
Can't wait for the bonus features DVD to come out! Make sure to follow Dan on Twitter @RealDanGargan!
Our first tease of this very blog! Thanks to Kheli Dube, Tony Walls, Kwame Watson-Siriboe and Sean Johnson for standing in defense with me... Thanks to Daniel Paladini for not hitting me in the head.
Sorry that I flinched (and then laughed)...
