So much speaks to me in this beautiful photo: summer; the beach; the two young girlfriends juxtaposed with the two old girlfriends…

CM Punk (born Phillip Jack Brooks), WWE Champion, Chicago native and Lockport Township High School graduate, photographed at North Ave Beach, 2008, Chicago.

I’m not a wrestling fan by any means, but I like what CM stands for. He lives the “straight edge” life (meaning no drugs, no drinking, no promiscuous sex, etc…). He does tons for the community and has always represented Chicago well; his costume even incorporates the Chicago flag.

Wildly popular, CM Punk has been the WWE Champion the last few years but unexpectedly retired this year. By all accounts, Brooks, a Wicker Park resident, is a solid role model and represents the best of Chicagoans: tough on the outside with a heart of gold.
