    Remember 'Street Smarts with J.J. Bittenbinder' from John Mulaney? A writer from The Ringer is screening it in Chicago this weekend
    Chicago and home are synonymous for Robert Mays. The 30-year-old grew up in the northwest suburb Barrington before heading to the University of Missouri. In 2010, fresh out of college, he was the first hire at Bill Simmons' upcoming sports and pop culture site Grantland - back then only nebulously referred to as "The Project."

    There aren't many meals more nostalgic than a bowl of cereal. Whether you prefer the first still crunchy bite or slurping down the leftover sugary milk, a meal of Fruity Pebbles, Cap'n Crunch or (in the healthier families) Cheerios brings back memories of Saturday morning cartoons and lazy Sundays without a care in the world.
