Andrew Shaw.... Sawzall... THE SHAWZALL!
Okay okay... I know, I do this sometimes.
Because it's fun.
You ever used a sawzall?
I got to help a guy tear down part of his house, and the only thing you have to worry about with these tools is... are you gonna hit something electric back behind those walls?
Because they cut through anything.
Like our buddy Andrew cuts through anything.
If you hadn't noticed, the Hawks are back in first (in the Central) where they belong.
Awhile back they a little funky period followed by an 8 game winning streak.
Corey Crawford, I'm sure you heard, fell walking out of a concert and missed 8 games but will return tonight against Columbus.
Other stuff I'm sure you heard: the Cubs signed reliever Jason Motte, and Jon Lester's personal catcher David Ross who will be 38 by next season.
2 years $5 mil.
Are they gonna keep 3 catchers or is Welly gone? We'll see.
Nobody likes the idea of... say Montero gets hurt hurt, is Ross good for an extended period?
There's so much baseball news it's just crazy and hard to keep up with.
And not sure if you heard but Jay Cutler got benched.
I am not kidding.
Lastly, when we did the Monopoly promotion last summer, it was a big thing with Joe Pytka directing, starring LeBron, Patrick Kane, and NASCAR racer Jamie McMurray (we also had soccer player Alex Morgan but she couldn't make the shoot and we had to film her later and green screen her in).
We also had to do some stills for social media, and got to shoot with an excellent sports guy named Todd Rosenberg.
He was super talented, a nice guy and really good with the athletes.
He's in the lower right in this shot (shooting on location, you gotta work with where you are - they brought a white backdrop for the portraits and we shot in an office building).
He's also been working with Sports Illustrated for a loong time.
So the other day I get an email.
All it said was: "I wish you could have been at this shoot."
The attachment was this:
Todd, if you read this please know that I can TOTALLY work on the side as an "assistant" and am perfectly capable of getting coffee, opening doors, um.. sweeping floors...all for no charge whatsoever. I'LL DO ANYTHING TO BE ON YOUR NEXT LESTER JOB, DUDE.
