Freelancer won't let cerebral palsy sideline his sports writing career

"Blake. Bombed gardner is a freelance journalist from naperville illinois just outside of chicago. He's trying to get established in the journalism industry but faces mobility issues due to living with cerebral palsy. Welcome to the podcast blake. Thanks michael happy to be here. Yeah i'll i'm having heavy on the podcast so so first of all. Tell me a little about yourself. Where'd you grow up and How'd you end up getting interested in sports journalism. Well i've been a sports all my life and grew up in naperville so unfortunately early left left talent as much as i would like to a group of sports fan and obviously you'll could play because of because miserable palsy. So you'll just try to get involved in any way that can. I grew up to be kinda encyclopedia of sorts growing up. And that's how. I got acceptance. You know much by peers growing up in school innocent. So you're the the writing acumen kinda came later in high school and stuff like that and wanted to try to pursue journalism as a as a college major but my background in sports and my passion for it has run deep. Since i was young. And just trying to learn. You'll every fact. Savior stat. That i can and just kind of tried to soak all that so-called so tell me about the freelance gig will what sports are you covering now is the lead prep for naple son. Which is the local paper here. For off periods from march two thousand. Ten until let's call it March of two thousand and nineteen was Football boys basketball and baseball. So i was in effect doing what a staffer would be doing covering those. Those three beats you'll features. Gamers notebooks all area packages. You any recruiting stuff you know. If we had a certain certain athlete commit to commit to a school would do stuff on that so just basically doing what a staff writer would be doing. Just without title that goes with it in the cash comes with view approached us reached out to us talking about being a man with cerebral palsy. Trying to find a job in the journalism industry. Did you encounter any difficulties in doing your freelance job. I guess the only difficulty was or would be like for example football. You'll you got some reporters who could you watch from the sidelines. I can't do that one. I can't stand for long periods of time to far the bigger issue is being able to grip something in my left hand and obviously being able to to write with right hand so i football. I'd have to be up in the press box. Computer keeps my own. Stats with an excel spreadsheet. Keep a play by play an steno notebook and then obviously you're not being able to drive so i'd have to look enough you my mother's kind of saint so she would be able to drop me off at your whatever high school i'd be covering a gay matt and obviously picking me up then you'll with the pay per bidding sunday wednesday. Friday paper deadline wasn't as big of an issue. So i'd be able to file once. I got back home and then just file with my editor and then it would go online and probably late friday early saturday morning and then it would run for brit on something as far as the deadline issue. Goes you know you were say a staff reporter. Do you think that you'd be able to find ways to adapt so that you be able to meet deadlines. I think it would depend on. If if it was y'all we talk seven day week paper. We talk in your six days a week three days. I think that number one would depend. Beware you covering something. And how far of a distance do you have to go because again. I'm not somebody who who would go to like mcdonald's or starbucks your to file on a pitch to use your wifi so i've never really done that so i think it would just depend on the type of publication writing for and where where you're covering something in relation to where you live. I think that's probably the biggest the biggest impediment that i've encountered just from a standpoint of applying for fulltime work with papers. Because you're the sun was kind of a nice set up because you're only dealing with six school. So like the daily herald in arlington heights. Illinois you could be dealing with twenty or twenty five schools with dupage county. And i could never do that so. The son was a good setup just because of the limited number of schools and they're all relatively close by the some of the challenges. You mentioned you know such as going to the mcdonalds or whatever the file. I mean you know there are adaptations to that. You know you can. You can get a sort of a mobile wireless thing that you can set up. You could sit in your car or you could find a space where you could write something up and file in a shared some of your clips with us and i was looking at your your stuff on medium. I mean you're really good feature writer. Do you have a real sense of how to tell a story. And engaging story you know he had a number of interviews some sports people talking about you know the challenges they faced. I can't remember which one it was. It was about a A pitcher from creighton. Who went on and talked about a big league game. That was his first big league games. And that's a real human sports type feature that you know then. I thought you did really well. Yeah mcnicol shortstop maple central grad. Which is where. I went to school. Full disclosure that he. He played baseball three years at creighton and got drafted in thrown by the royals in two thousand and sixteen made his major league debut with the royals in may of two thousand and one thousand nine. Yeah i and also you had some stories up there about your experiences. I guess you you were pursuing job at espn in their stats department. Concerned told me about that experience. You'll couple years before that of this kind of full around twitter and peter vesey started. Follow me at twitter. So then i started engaging with pam kinda explaining your my story my journey. What i'm trying to do. Would you be willing to to look at somebody stuff. And then the all august of two thousand eighteen after a previous interview with the spn. Two phone interviews. It didn't go particularly well in terms of making the next step and really no fault of my own or at least i didn't think there was any fault on my own. So he said why. Don't you put your story out there. You'll we could put on facebook twitter. He was writing on patriotic at that point doing some work on his own so he was gonna try to help me get it out there. No so we did that august. Two thousand nine hundred got got some nice nice feedback back. Although the only person i really heard from wanted to actually meet with me was mark boyle the radio play voice of the pacers and he and i met in chicago in october before bowls. Pacers preseason game. The festival would six months. We did a follow up the wwl two thousand nineteen by bringing caught wind of it. And then he forwarded onto norby williamson. Who's a it'll bigwig executives peon and then you'll that eventually led to meet talking with a recruiter. Espn by the name of stacey williamson and then we. We got the point where i went out to bristol interview with. Espn for today's april third and fourth two thousand eighteen for job in their stats and information group and you know unfortunately a couple of weeks later found out that i was making it to the next step in that process but i made a strong enough impression with the giro up that i met with on the second day of an interview. And we've kept in touch. And i ended up applying for and interviewing for their production. Assistance program called. Espn next at a couple of interviews in march of this year and then found out in. May that i wasn't making it the next step that process which would have been an in person interview out bristol but obviously with covid nineteen that process. I'm sure got put on. Hold on that. You're what happened with that. So you kind of kept in touch with her the jar up. So we're still you'll let door. I don't think it's completely closed. But she's she's one of the few advocates that i have and i don't have a lot of them so you know trying to keep that door open as best. I can

But I want to do a TV trivia mid sixties and I got a bad song for you too. You know something I don't like. Okay, Bye, Joe, Cuba. Oh, interesting, Okay. That's one I heard years ago. I remember what you was. It was a long time ago. All right, Sonny and Cher had the big hit, of course, but all right. What aspiring actress lived in Manhattan at Apartment four D on West 78th Street. Mary Tyler Moore. Nope. And Marie on that girl. Oh, that girl better. Yeah, well, that's for sure. I was a popular show back, right? Right. You said you said sixties I aim to please. Thanks again. Thanks for trying. We'll try again. I hope somebody All right. We've got Bill in Chicago. Welcome to WGN radio. Yeah, I got a kind of a tribute question. Ask you don't know how old you are. Your age is talking about radio stations. Back in the forties, late forties and fifties. Grew up south of Fort Wayne, Indiana. And we used to listen to the radio station late at night from their real Texas except the transmitter was in Mexico with 100,000 Watch. X er f the big building. What would I do Remember the caller's number? But remember listening because my parents We had the radio on a neighborhood. Never radio news. The neighbor used to come on the farm down the road used to come down and it said, Listen, Toe gospel music station late at night. That was later. That was later this year, Right? This'll started with Dr Brinkley. Do you know the history of the station? No, I do know that When they used to say you could walk by the transmitting their hair stand up on end and blue glow blue at night. You knew that I read that well, and any time you've got those 250,000 watt stations, you can also take neon tubes and, you know, play like light swords could still light up in all that, But that's typical or if, but no. The deal. Woz, John R. Brinkley. Who was a so called doctor. He was the first person to get a radio station in Kansas in the twenties. He was also the first state person to lose a license to the FRC and, well, the FCC later that In Kansas. So he went south to the border blaster. And he's a guy who had the goat gland operations, if you know about that, and what kind of you may know, right, right? That's right. You were gonna get a glutton your straw to glide in your stride if you just replaced your testicles with those of a goat, right? Remember reading that later on, right? Yeah, I remember. People did this, which is really frightening, including one of the editors of the Los Angeles Times and you know that. Hence the joke. What is the fastest thing on four legs walking through the Brinkley clinic in the answer? Of course, you know, all right. Oh, goat. Well, now, all right. What happened was this is sadly, Dr Brinkley shenanigans. And you know what he was basically doing was prescribing quack cures on the radio. And you're right in anything. I know you did that. All right, all that well. So the FCC made it illegal to microwave a signal across the border and that stood until fairly recently, actually, so when Wolf Man, Jack was hired and went down there, he actually had to go TOC it at a communion every day. He couldn't do it from Del Rio. He had to drive across the border, and it truly was like the Wild West. But yeah, actually, our F was just a wonderful radio station to listen to. I ordered every damn product they had. You know, the police the peace of the original claws. The last supper table cloth, You know, I got him off and you know the record packages and all that. And then, of course, Jack went Torto Bob name, but they went Tolo TV wanted to Rosarito Beach. S e x e r B But yes, X er xrf was a killer radio station in terms of in terms of signal. But yet John R. Brinkley just Made made his fortune there. You mentioned Wolf man, Jack. I just like to listen to him. Yeah, I liked his voice was great. Yeah, it was. It was. Ah, great bit. And you know, he really He really brought that station alive because you know it was It was such a mystique, You know, broadcasting from south of the border and all of all of those stuff. And he had he had wonderful success with that. And then of course, he went to X er be and I don't know who got upset, But next thing you know, the government outlawed preachers on the radio. Of course, that meant that Jack was gonna lose every dime he ever made. And the minute that he was gone and all that the Mexican government rescinded that, you know, so Right, Right. You know, they took over the transmitter are Torrente down one of its. It's still there. Believe me. Oh, hell, yes. Well, they're down to 50,000 watch now, none of the border blasters or 2 50 anymore, But they're all 50. But you know, X er f is still a border blessed as far as that extra extra B, which the last time I checked with 10 90 Express. I'm sure there's something else now exceed G and Monterey same deal. So so, Yeah, that was that was the deal. It was fun to listen to the border Blasters. Oh, yeah, He's listening all the time. Yeah. Thanks for that station. My parents listened. But, Yeah. Hmm. Already? No, no other real question for I just just talking about different station. I don't talking about trivia. I wonder if you remember that state. Yeah, You're right. I don't hold your of you remember that? Yeah, I still have. I still have real the real heir checks of it. Ugo. Oh, I've got to know Web for real. The real, uh, The, uh, What do you call it?

Oh, wow, really? Yes, And it grabs, you know. Well, having all boys we sat there, and we would have that son who puke first who starts to cry. It was funny. It was a good bonding time with the boy. That's true. You're wagering on it. That's pretty good, Mark. I like that. Thanks. I'd like the version where they could show him really naked and afraid. I mean, you know, it's um It's a good looking girls on natural somebody, by the way, said they'd been to watch porn on. That was funny. I like I appreciated that to give me that version of naked and afraid. Usually I only need about 45 minutes binge watching. Viking Scott on ESPN 1000. What's up, Scotty? Hey, guys, Uh, not a lot. I mean, thank God you guys are still on the radio. At least my days here in the office could be entertaining. Never know what's gonna happen between shows so appreciate that we're here. So me and the missus just finished season one of bloodline on Netflix. I heard that was good. It is pretty good, so we're through Season one. That's only a season. One thing but very enjoyable kind of traps in where you don't realize the episodes. Air going Kind of like Ozarks does. You're like, Wow, We're already through 12 tonight. That's great. So, Mom, I want to get into the bear roster thing, but real quick Before that, my wife says, Hey, you're going to quit. Listen to sports radio. I'm not a big order online guy. But since this pandemic started, I've gotten something from manscaping blew two and Sylvie strong You'd have to quit. Listen Sports radio Universal Order this many packages. We're going through all the money I why not at all. So regarding the roster thing where they had the rankings come out. Yeah, in the future ranking you future. So what I did is I compared like how many under 30 starters, Of course, the Vikings have to the Bears, and the Bears have five that are going to be 30 and older, not including kickers never include pictures of starter and then the Vikings had three. So And then you kind of say, Well, how much young talents on that roster If you look, both teams actually have a lot of young talent under the age of 30 But the question is, you know those 30 over. I think you're better players in case the Vikings Harrison Smith, 31 cousins of 30 and rightly reef is 31. So you know, you kind of make those comparisons. I wonder if that was included in their thing, because to me that kind of determines where you're at, And then you have to much young count You gonna be able to afford a mall in the contract run out, right Agent contract. I think of the two things that probably affected most sky. Thanks, buddy. Be well. Always nice hearing from you.

So that's over $380 million house so I can get in this in this time, like, be getting that kind of sacrifice that moved. He had to make. Wow, and I would think you would take that in a second. You think he's worth that? He's he's really good, right? Is mochi. Bad? Fabulous? I mean, You know, when you start getting into those 10 year deals to me, there's you're always gonna carry some risk. But you should get 5 to 7 great years out of monkey bats, right? The Angels get one good year out of pools. Maybe 1.5 about it. Find that deal hasn't been good. I look at it, but the pools was also older already when he got there wasn't that deal has not been good. You guys know who Brian McCarthy is. He's a bigwig with the NFL.

NFL games this season will be required to wear face cover correct in Atlanta has announced that It doesn't mean that the Bears are going right if if the governor and the mayor say it's not gonna be allowed the Bears beyond I think they're all going to find common ground is wearing a helmet considered face a mask.

"Skilling say watch for updated forecasts from Chicago's most trusted meteorologist Tom skilling weeknights on WGN TV and Tom looks great and I'm sure he feels fantastic he's been very public about having the the surgery to lose weight on the phone with us is northwestern Dr Ben singer three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred is our phone number Dr gonna have get through these calls in a second but there's a few great text messages I'm using a surgical mask as opposed to a cloth mask can I assume by setting it aside for a few days a rotating in a fresh one that the virus will die on the mask after a few days and wear it again is that safe yeah that is that is a reasonable assumption but remember that the surgical masks are really meant to be single use only even in the hospital we will really only wear those for up to a day or one shift at a time because unlike hockey masks even though they do provide a bit more protection they're less durable okay can abandon a work as a mask of course right yeah yeah you can absolutely work is the kind of face covering that's recommended for the public to prevent spread of droplets from your nose and mouth to someone else all right let's go to Michelle in Frankfort Michelle what's your question for Dr Ben Michelle all right we got rid of the shots go to Ron in Arlington Heights run what's your question for Dr Ben hi can you hear me yeah go ahead okay now which did mention a pretension is it increased the risk factor for a corporate desk correct that's correct okay now despite pretension he said it quickly managed by medication and the numbers are reasonable is it still in A&E grist yeah that is a really really good question and we don't quite have the answer to it yet the available data would suggest that even controlled hypertension just having the diagnose gnosis of hypertension still carries some risk that being said that having better control hypertension band worst controlled hypertension is good for so many reasons that I think it hearing to your blood pressure control medications and lifestyle is still really important let's go to hand in monster Indiana and what's your question for Dr Ben my question is this can you hear me yes does your up I am prone to getting cold sores but I hadn't gotten them for at least five years and I got my first cold sore in February on the lips and then I took care of that with candles Kellen calendula and it went away and then on March couple weeks later or several weeks later should say again I got the feeling the tingling of getting another cold storage sure enough there was a little cold store there and I treated again with Campolindo I know that that's a virus are they related zero some concern that I should have with watching myself of course extra carefully is there are correlation doc you know they're they're very very different viruses so the the virus that causes the cold storage is type of herpes virus and that in many ways very very different than the virus that causes club in nineteen okay all right let's go to a Jeff in Barrington Jeff what's your question for Dr Ben the summertime coming we have all the skills come in and given the scale give you the virus can we get the virus from a mosquito I don't think we know yet but doc yeah we don't know for sure but probably not this this is probably not a blood borne virus to could be transmitted by a mosquito the viruses that mosquitoes carrying are much more like the ones that you usually think about so west Nile virus in particular Dr Ben singer on the phone with us from northwestern hospital Mike in Glen view what's your question hi thanks for this sub segments of our helpful Todd had this is the last time we were to start talk to anybody was March seventeenth I had a doctor's appointment that day and a couple weeks with the polls for the last several weeks I've had a very special not sure but we'll scratchy extremely dry throat and no fever but it it really isn't getting any better now I do suffer from allergies I take a Claritin and zyrtec alternatively each day but an officer had suffered from allergies each year just never to this extent so I'm wondering if I might have this might be something of a reason to get tested or perched I will be more like allergies Dr yeah sure it it's probably allergies but of course I can't say for certain shore and it's certainly worth a call to your doctor for that question it would be unlikely to have coated nineteen causing that symptom for so long just in isolation but again a call your doctor is probably a good idea here we always say when in doubt call up your general practitioner yes good good advice for pretty much everything here let's go to al al what's your question for Dr Ben thank you man err in occupational therapy and physical therapy the supply of in ninety five and J. in ninety five and even the paper surgical isolation ma'am our little supply and I just want to know what's your take on put them inside of a brown paper bag sprayed with Lysol and leave them there to the next day and review them if they're not alone right I think you are you answered that you already said that would be okay right doc yeah I think it's okay I I wouldn't scream with Lysol I think you know just letting them set aside is is okay that's a very reasonable way to extend their use but again if they these disposable masks as they start to look west soiled visibly dirty that's at the time to replace them do we need to spray Lysol in our place of business if we're still coming downtown like we are here WGN or at our house certainly so in that care probably doesn't do all that much but what you mentioned at the start of the segment about disinfecting things by wiping them down with a disinfectant that's affected against viruses I think that does make sense okay Dr Ben singer on the phone with us by the way the governor is not doing a press conference on the weekends anymore he made that announcement so the governor will not be speaking today and I'm sure he would love to take off mother's day Jan in the lake villa what's your question for Dr Ben hi I was wondering if it's safe to leave the mask in the car you know that in the book cheap disposable ones but there are some Republicans pretty hot the cars that sexually well then there's the always have one with you whatever you go places yeah I'd probably okay I'll be honest I don't I don't know the manufacturer recommendations for most of the surgical masks about the upper limit of temperatures that they recommend before the mask might start to break down but that might be some information to track down because you're right the inside of a car can get quite hot in the summer around here I have a cloth mask that I keep in my car around my stick shift yeah I think I think that makes sense because okay I can get plenty hot it's not going to break down like the plastic fibers within the surgical masks got it let's go to Jennifer Jennifer what's your question for Dr Ben thanks for holding hi doctor bad ER nurse stopped at an ER nurse for twenty six years I think we're kind of like not negating the fact that we're not talking about immunity and how that plays a role in beating cold at night he also taking vitamin D. and you know just your immune system in general I I have this charge will my hospital has discharged over nine hundred and we're still discharging patients who wow Jennifer eight o'clock Jennifer where do you work where where do you work UP I lost her that's okay well doctor again no two we we've talked about we've talked about keeping your immune system up you got to get the proper sleep I've mentioned vitamin D. I take that on a daily basis but go ahead you can answer yeah and she brought up a lot of great points so it it's it's wonderful to see people being discharged right I mean that means that people have come into the hospital sack and have proved to the point where they're they're able to go home in terms of keeping your immune system in as good a shape as possible you know we don't have drugs or supplements that are able to really get your immune system better than in normal if you're deficient in the vitamin you're deficient in and yet in a mineral that's what those supplements are for her to make sure that those levels are are where they should be mentioned vitamin D. vitamin D. deficiency is quite common and so if you are vitamin D. deficient taking those supplements I can definitely help support overall health in but taking more than the recommended vitamin C. on a daily basis isn't going to help unfortunately not no it won't okay let's go to Jeff in Barrington Jeff thanks for holding what's your question for Dr Ben Jeff okay let's go to a Keren in Willowbrook Karen what's your question for Dr Ben yes hi I am somewhat overweight and I heard that we should be staying away from sugar because of that I guess exacerbate the virus and I would like to know if complex carbohydrates are considered in the same category as sugar doc yes so the the links between sugar and and the virus are are probably complicated and and much more complicated than just you know have it staying away from it it seems to be that the risk factors for doing poorly from the virus mean having a severe course are more related to diabetes and just being overweight or obese and so to the extent that she I. eating extra calories in the form of sugar or carbohydrates can lead to things like obesity that makes sense but but there's not an easy one to want like unfortunately okay good because I had some cookies last night I just want to make sure let's go to Capitol Hill and bowling brook I Kathy hi Dr I am a hot mess of coal morbidity I have cystic fibrosis lung disease I have related diabetes I have related arthritis arthropathy however for the arthropathy I I've been on I got to chloroquine for two years now and for my long as I've been around for decades if this is a life sentence I'm wondering if perhaps the combination of those two on certain drugs might provide some protection against the virus taking hold or if I caught it I did have helped me get over it yeah no it's a it's a it's a fair question so the the background is that medication like Hydroxycut work when sometimes in combination with the jets from mice and has been thought to serve as a treatment for cold at nineteen or even a preventive therapy and more more data coming out that that probably isn't true and we still need more definitive data we do have data from people who have proven to logic conditions like you mentioned inflammatory arthritis who take hydroxy Cork when in those people it doesn't appear the peeing on hydroxy chloroquine is able to prevent the virus or.

Do have you changed you change the ways in which you player the things you play based on a crowd ever the question of kinda sort? We will we rarely I think. Like, I said in the article, let me never read a set list, but we try to go with like the vibe of the crowd. Like if say what we played like last year we played a concert at a a library in Arlington heights. And we knew that we couldn't necessarily we only had an hour. So we couldn't really hit him over the head with like are really crazy stuff. Yeah. But we kinda, but we stuff too had a little more of a groove like the we get some heads nodding in some fee tavern. That's we kind of rate we kind of hit them with a lot of that stuff. And we kind of step out of the box like a crazy time signature play here and there, but you kind of you know, we we don't necessarily change what we do. But we kind of we've got enough diverse stuff in a repertoire that like if we could play like we've played like say retire like a retirement home with people are expecting like this kind of stuff like really like nineteen thirty forty. So we can pull stuff that they would like, and then we could pull space we can. Do whatever the heck we want just going to go all over the place. So it's a wonderful thing that you're you're two main homes here are space, and and Andy's just for literally.

You know, that's one of the things we talked about in that article to talk about it with most artists their great sacrifices one makes with you know, you don't have, you know, have an IRA, you know, have a pension thing. But it's the passion that drives you then and the rewards are are different. Yeah. Me not show up in a Bank account, but they show up in some kind of soul count. You know, and money comes goes, you know, every day, you know, my son has clothes on his back, and I know some cute. Yeah. He's he's he's growing up, and you know, so and I've got a hugely supportive, you know, wife and family and everything else.
