Look for my regularly scheduled posts on Windy City Gridiron every Monday through Friday.

I can be heard every morning around 7:30am following Bears games during Bears season on 95.7 The Fan, South Bend Indiana's official home of the Chicago Bears.

And once in a while I can be found elsewhere around the web, occasionally touching on other subjects.

Follow me on Twitter @wiltfongjr and never miss a thing.
