Grilling With Fire Part 1: Daniel Paladini

A fun interview series with your favorite Fire Players. We sit down and "grill" them with 26 questions that are in the vein of light-hearted and fun.

Ned Dishman

Here at HTIOT we spend much of the time writing about topics that tend to be serious. We thought we would try to change it up a bit and try something new. I thought it would be fun to ask members of the Chicago Fire some questions that aren't your typical serious questions by nature. So I came up with 27 questions for this first act. In the future we plan to aggregate different questions from the entire HTIOT crew.

Here is the first installment (hopefully many more to come) of what I would like to call "Grilling with Fire". Our first guest is Fire midfielder Daniel Paladini. So enjoy and if you would like us to interview a certain Fire player please let us know in the comment section.
