On any given evening, you can rest assured there are some board games going on at the Levatino house. When he’s not cheering on The Memphis Tigers, the Tennessee Vols, the Memphis Grizzlies, or the Chicago Cubs, you can find him shuffling kids back and forth to practices or on the golf course chasing down balls that are nowhere near the fairway.
