Samuel Boland

Currently studying sports media at Indiana University because hey, it’s probably a good idea to follow your dreams while you’re young, right? Born and raised in Northwest Indiana under an hour away from the best sports city in the world, Chicago. I’m a diehard Chicago Blackhawks, White Sox, Bears and Bulls fan. Growing up I genuinely believed I'd be centering a dominate second line alongside Patrick Kane by the time I turned twenty, but writing about it isn't too bad either. I think I’ve lived long enough to feel ways about stuff. That being said, Trubisky is the second coming, MJ is the GOAT, the Blackhawks are a dynasty and the media deleted the 2005 World Series. All opinions are my own.Can still hit the open 3 or go bar down glove side, your call.Follow @SamuelRBoland on Twitter.
