Anyone else completely freaked out that October is pretty much here already? Where did this year go to??

Congratulations…

…to the Chicago White Sox for clinching the AL Central title yesterday. Unlike many Sox fans, this Cubs fan is capable of recognizing a talented ball club and congratulating said club on an extraordinary season. Would I rather see the Cubs in the playoffs? Of course. But I do not hate the White Sox. After all, they are a Chicago team and I wish them well. Let’s keep in mind, too, that the second longest World Series drought belongs to none other than the White Sox. 1917, baby.

Thursday, September 22nd, 2005
Yesterday it was announced that Marshall Field's will be subject to a name change. As of Fall of next year, the department store that holds much historical significance here in Chicago will be called Macy's. Many Chicagoans ... [Continue reading this entry]

Rita

Wednesday, September 21st, 2005
"Not again," I've been repeating to myself as I watch countless CNN and Weather Channel reports about Hurricane Rita. She's heading towards Texas but one sharp turn and New Orleans could be hit again. Felicia and I ... [Continue reading this entry]

Saturday at Starved Rock

Saturday, September 17th, 2005
I was supposed to be at that Michigan State / Notre Dame football game in South Bend today, but plans changed and I couldn't bear the thought of staying indoors on a gorgeous day like we had today. So ... [Continue reading this entry]

Kickin’ Irish butt!

Saturday, September 17th, 2005
My Michigan State Spartans just beat Notre Dame, 44-41. I despise Notre Dame more than any other school on this planet. As far as I'm concerned, MSU doesn't need to win another game all season; it's already a ... [Continue reading this entry]
