Daily Herald report

With the NFL regular season still 10 days away from opening night, select Daily Herald subscribers fed their fantasy football frenzy by attending a Q-and-A session Monday night with the newspaper's pro football experts.

Fantasy football columnist John Dietz was joined by veteran Bears beat writer Bob LeGere to discuss the upcoming NFL season and fantasy football draft strategies.

Dietz has written a weekly column for 15 years, and LeGere began covering the Bears and the NFL in 1993 for the Daily Herald.

Sports writer Joe Aguilar, who regularly appears on ABC 7's morning news show to discuss the Bears, was the emcee for the event, which was held at The Rack House Kitchen and Tavern in Arlington Heights.
