  • File this one under "Things That Make Me Feel Old." While shooting the Kane County Cougars media day I saw Shawon Dunston, Jr. getting ready to take the field for a light workout. I remember when he got drafted and I knew he was on the Cougars roster, but there was something about standing next to him and then realizing his dad was one of my favorite players from the era when I became a diehard Cubs fan. He probably thinks his dad is old. That means I'm old. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edtion.
