Jason Patt

Contributor

Born and raised in the western suburbs of Chicago, Jason Patt has been a die-hard sports fan pretty much his entire life. Growing up during the Michael Jordan Bulls dynasty gave him a special connection with the team, a connection he couldn't even break during the dark days of Tim Floyd. After attending the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he began to put that love of the Bulls into writing, becoming the editor of Bulls101.com and contributing to BullsConnect.com. He then got the call up to SB Nation's own Blog a Bull, where he's currently a contributor to go along with his duties on the SB Nation Newsdesk.
