I was stuck in the car for about 2 hours today, so I got to listen to callers with their stories about Norm Van Lier. One caller recalled meeting Stormin' Norman when he was about 10 years old in line at a McDonald's with his dad. After asking his father who the familiar looking person was, his father told him it was Norm Van Lier. His father introduced himself and his son to Norm. Norm asked the young kid if he played sports and the kid told him that he was in Little League. The father and son sat down at a booth to eat, when the kid felt a tap on his shoulder. It was Norm, who asked if he could sit down and eat with the two of them. They talked about Little League about sports.
I have been lucky enough to run into Norm a couple of times at sporting events and the radio promotions. I took a photo with him at one of those events and that picture hangs in my office.

Have to be mobile for several hours today (the beautiful drive from Chicago to Waukegan), so Sports Radio should keep me entertained with reports, rumors, speculation and innuendos!
1. Peter Vescey (big deal!) reprots that Paxson will resign as Bulls' GM shortly after the All-Star Break.
Now HM told me long ago that Vescey simply makes up half the stuff in his column, so I disregard this.
2. Moments later, the SCORE's Fred Hubner confirms that Paxson is indeed resigning.
3. Reinsdorf responds to the Vescey rumor by stating that "Vescey is not a credible source" (true: see above), so there is no need to respond to Vescey's claim. He doesn't mention Hubner's story!
It looks like Paxson is retiring and it is an actually retiring and not Pax being forced out (Reinsdorf is extremely loyal to Pax).
If I get a chance, more to follow.
