Bob Rosenberg
Bob Rosenberg is the longtime official scorer for the Chicago Bulls, who received a surprise cake in his face during a game Nov. 6, 2012, in honor of working his 2,000th contest for the team. In the history of the franchise, he has missed only two home games -- and that occurred in 2000 when he went to Japan to be official scorer for the Chicago Cubs-New York Mets series in Tokyo. Bob also has been official scorer for more than 2,000 Chicago White Sox games. If there is a Hall of Fame for official scorers, Bob has to be a charter member. He also has worked at Chicago Bears, Blackhawks and Cubs games -- among several other teams. He has seen just about everything and everyone on the Chicago sports scene in the last 50 years and has remarkable recollection of it all.

Payal Patel
Payal is the executive director of media and public relations for the Chicago Soul FC, the new Major Indoor Soccer League team that has its home debut Dec. 7 at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates. A Marquette grad, Payal worked in radio and television in Milwaukee. Payal also is founder and president of Future All-Stars, a youth-based non-profit organization launched in 2008. The organization was developed to help connect at-risk youth to professional and collegiate athletes through an athletic and academic mentoring program to help youngsters overcome adversity and help bridge the gap between them and their dreams
