Chicago art legend, radio personality, poet, actor, boxer, and all around nice guy Tony Fitzpatrick talks about Tattoo history, Chicago’s art world, the working class mode of being an artist and why this is a kick-ass time and place to be.

Richard, Duncan, and Amanda bob their heads along as this legendary Chicagoan story teller entrances us with yarns of Al Capone, Nixon’s stolen election, Amanda Browder’s mom, and yes, perhaps a little ribbing of your friends to the North. (No, not Milwaukee)

WEAR IT WITH PRIDE AND HELP BAS OUT! Are you interested in supporting Bad at Sports, while wearing a sporty new hoodie?

Maybe picking out a great coffee mug?

WTF do I mean? We have a lovely BAS + Cafe Press Site at… www.cafepress.com/badatsports
