Welcome to Chicago Julius

Monday night I found myself sitting next to four of Chicago’s biggest dudes.

Lance Briggs hosted his Briggz4Kids charity event at Lumen and invited his teammates to come show support.

Lance is one of the nice guys- he’s friendly to eveyone, respectful and not afraid to have some fun.

I found myself being intoduced to Lance’s new teammate Julius Peppers- who towered over me, yet was kind and almost a bit shy with the photogs and fans who were quick to welcome him to Chicago.

Brian Urlacher and Israel Idonije were also in the house- which shows dedication to your team off the field.

I also got to hang with some Chicago artists, Jerry Azumah and Alissa, NBC’s Marcus Riley, The Tribune’s Luis Arroyave, Mikey Farah from Berry Chill and Julius’s awesome nefew who’s a clothing designer.

But the highlight of the night was winning a live auction prize of a champagne brunch and White Sox tickets on June 6th.

Now all I need is a date…
