Talking Cubs Baseball Since 2003

Bill Thompson

Bill Thompson joined the VFTB writing team in December of 2016. As a lifelong baseball fan, and most importantly, a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan, he’s also a fan of the Brisbane Bandits from the ABL, Hanwha Eagles from the KBO, and Nippon Ham Fighters from the NPB. As far as sports go, he’s pretty much all baseball all the time at this stage in his life. He has been writing about baseball for a little bit now, and his general work can be found at Banished to the Pen. He also occasionally writes about pro wrestling at Wrestling with Words and about movies at Bill’s Movie Emporium. When he’s not writing, his paramedic job takes up most of his time. His wonderful wife, and fabulous daughter, with another daughter on the way, also occupy a lot of his time. He’s a simple man, a man who abides and is all about his family, work, and baseball.
