THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

The Rock Father: Chicago Stories

Raising a family in the Chicago area, I take pride in calling Chicagoland my home. While "The Rock Father" is a site with a National scope, this section collects all of my writings tagged with "Chicago" into one location that's overrun with Windy City pride. From Chicago family events, to local music and adventures with my daughters, this is my hometown spot here on the site, and I hope you dig it. - James

SAVE FERRIS? Nah, just MIKE MAGEE's DAY OFF #SaveMagee

I know I've mentioned it before here on the site, but I know next to nothing about soccer - or the game most of the world calls "football" or "futbol." But, with the World Cup now wrapped, the folks at Major League Soccer sent me an email with a reminder that the 2014 MLS season is just at it's halfway mark, and with Mike Magee of the Chicago Fire Soccer Club it's reigning MVP, they put together a very Chicago-centric parody... of FERRIS BUELLER's DAY OFF. So, it's Chicago, and they asked nicely, so I'm sharing it with all of you. This is actually the second FERRIS parody I've shared this year, with the excellent BATDAD Bueller parody running back in January.
