An avid sports fan, Lou now has more time for his beloved Chicago Bears and Chicago Blackhawks, and has added the Arizona Coyotes professional hockey team and Arizona Cardinals professional football team to his line up. Plus, his love of gardening has been made much easier now that he gardens in the desert!
