On Thursday morning I got up at 6:30 a.m. to be interviewed by the friendly folks at WGN Morning News in Chicago. Anchor Larry Potash (right) is a Bad Sweater Guy fan and interviewed me last year around this time. It's definitely Bad Sweater Season, especially in Chicago, where the temperature was about 17 on Thursday (feels like 2). Yet for some reason Larry rejected my offer to hook him up with a warm sweater to get him through the cold.
Back when I used to work the night cops shift at The Press-Enterprise in Riverside, Calif., I would get off work at midnight, go home, watch TV, eat some dinner, then go work out at a 24-hour gym. I'd come home early in the morning and tune in to watch Larry and his WGN Morning News crew on cable before I went to sleep. I ended my day just as they began theirs.
