Laughter, well that is the best medicine around today and I want to grow old with lots of signs of a fun and happy life on my face!

Interests:
My children, writing, music, sand volleyball, hiking, camping, floating, fishing, and hanging with friends around a fire


Pat Imig - Co-Host Afternoon Delight & People's Blog Columnist

Where did you go to high school?: CBC

Bio: Born in Manchester. After graduating from CBC, I made my way to Mizzou to study journalism. The one thing it has taught me is that TV reporting sucks. On another note, if you happen to be in Columbia over the next couple of months, give Papa John’s a call and I may just deliver your pizza (of course, I’m not joking).

Was able to join the sports empire known as joesportsfan.com a little over a year ago, after bribing Josh with an autographed Lee Tunnel rookie card. Since then, I have spent most of my time documenting the circus that is ESPN. While I find it highly entertaining, I’m pretty sure it isn’t normal.


Favorite TV Show(s): Family Guy. Forensic Files is solid too

Favorite STL Personality:
Can’t go wrong with Joe Buck or Bob Costas. Also a fan of Bryan Burwell.

Interests:
Music, people, dogs, barbecuing, Sean Salisbury

Proud graduate of CBC (c/o 2009), who started out at the University of Missouri, but will graduate from Saint Louis University in May 2014 with a degree in Communication-Journalism. I’ve spent time in sports-talk radio as an intern with The One To Three Show and The ITD Morning After and as a producer for The Big Phat Sports Show on 590 The Fan KFNS. However, my heart is in print journalism. I have a passion for writing and, from what I understand, the job opportunities are not only plentiful, but also extremely lucrative. On that note, I’m currently the men’s basketball beat writer for The University News.

I loved growing up in Jennings but, unfortunately, I became another victim of "White Flight" in 1996, when my parents uprooted the family for the (supposedly) greener pastures of St. Peters.  I finished high school at Zumwalt, then went on to Lindenwood University to get my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Education.  While in college, I met my future wife, Jessica (who's WAY out of my league), and we were married in 2003.  We moved to Florissant that same year, and we currently live there with our 4 dogs (Comet, Krypto, Ace, & Batman).

Joe Stilwell

Role: STL Golf Columnist

Where did you go to high school?: Mt. Olive High School (Illinois)

Bio:
Overall, I am pretty laid back about most things. I guess that comes from being from a small town. But I will warn you that I could be the most competitive person in the world.  I love ALL sports but golf and baseball are my passions.  I have a tendency to be a smartass, but you can determine for yourself if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I am quite well-rounded. I have been to musicals and liked a few. I know how to cook. I like to dress up when the occassion calls for it. I am not a fan of people who wear jeans to a wedding. I watch ALL movies and and listen to ALL types of music. I know how to dance. I don't worry about much, but am a good listener and a realist. I may tell you something you don't want to hear. I love to make people laugh and talk.
