Phil Roselli (ret.)

Name:  Phil Roselli
I-75 League team name:   Chatfield Chimeras
Birthdate:  Nov. 23, 1961
Currently resident of:   Littleton, Colo.
Birthplace:  Minnesota
Family:  You bet
Occupation:  Attorney, Pinball Wizard, Titan Deity
Employer:  Law firm
Job title:  Partner
In plain English, what do you do:  Win cases
Real-life MLB team you are a fan of:  Colorado Rockies
Years playing Strat: Too many.  Started at 16.
How you first were introduced to Strat:  Introduced by a friend in Wisconsin.  Grew up a Brewers fan.  Crafted the first Strat-o-Matic “Team Bus” (carrying case) for the legendary “Sixto Kids.”
How you became part of the I-75 League:  Through lifelong friend and freshman roomie Mike Q. Renbarger, who I helped introduce to Strat-o-Matic.
Origin of your team name:  Chatfield is the local high school.  Son Nathan played football there; son Joey just completed freshman year there as a stalwart on the O-line.  6’ 1” 230 lbs and just turned 15.  Grow baby, grow!  Chimeras—what the heck, they are a cool mythical beast.  According to Wikipedia a Chimera is: “”a thing of immortal make, not human, lion-fronted and snake behind, a goat in the middle, and snorting out the breath of the terrible flame of bright fire.”  I just want to strike fear, or at least hysteria, into the hearts of my opponents.
Any Strat involvement outside the I-75 League?  Not any more.
Fondest  I-75 League memory (related to Strat competition):   Being awarded a box of Andes Thin Mints by Renbo for winning a lot of games in 2005.
Fondest I-75 League convention moment: Multiple trips to the tepid tub, Grapefruit games and jaunts to Disney.
Fondest I-75 League tradition:  Watching Doc Grid whiff in softball.
Trade or draft pick you made that you wish you could have back:  Never look back!  I live to trade!
Trade or draft pick you made in which you think you hit a homer:   All of them, and I have never laid a glove on Homer!
One thing you would do to improve the league: Ken Kuzdak in boxers carrying a “round card” around the Strat Condo between draft rounds (you know, like they do in prize fighting).
How to follow you: Website, Blog,  Facebook, MySpace, Twitter…   Walk behind me.
Your chance to self-promote:  I am a great guy.
How you can be reached:  Email almost 24/7.

  1. While I find the thought of Phil thinking about me parading around in my boxers unnerving, I can be bought…. for ther right price (say that #3 overall pick)?
