Al Yellon

Managing Editor

Al Yellon is a native Chicagoan who has been following Chicago sports since the 1960's. That means he's seen a lot of losing -- but enjoyed the Bears Super Bowl win, the six Bulls titles, and yes, even the White Sox World Series title, even though he's a Cubs fan. He left Chicago to go east for college at Colgate University, then returned and worked for 29 years as a television director for Chicago TV stations before joining SB Nation full time as a senior editor. As a Chicago sports fan, Al thinks any championship for our city is a good thing. Go Chicago!
