Madhouse On Madison

Posted By on November 3, 2010

So look at that, I failed on the second day of this whole “write more in the month of November” thing I started. (It really needs some sort of catchy title.) But in my defense, I didn’t post on Tuesday because I was in a sour mood. I was irritated by something most of the afternoon and the election results just soured my mood even more. I actually tried to sit and write a post but it was all “HATE PEOPLE! ANGRY! HULK SMASH!!!!11!!!!” So, you’re welcome.

And now this post is really not a post either since this is all you’re going to get, plus some photos. Because tonight I went to the Blackhawks game. With my boss. She is in town and asked me this afternoon if I would be interested. And well, I can’t turn down free hockey tickets. Also, we bought them on Stub Hub two hours before the game and got pretty decent seats.

The Hawks lost, but it was interesting to watch a Chicago sporting event through the eyes of a non-Chicagoan. My boss loved the fact that the beer vendors came all the way up to the upper deck. I told her this was one thing I was sure was a Chicago and/or Midwestern thing. She was also surprised at the amount of booze choices and the booze advertisements throughout the game. Welcome to Chicago, we’re a drinking city with a sports problem.

And thankfully I was driving (and with my boss) so I only had one beer. Because God forbid I end up doing something inappropriate, like I am wont to do, especially at sporting events.

The Rod Carew statue in Minneapolis hasn’t been the same since my visit.

    And don’t forget you’ve also assaulted the Mary Tyler Moore (Minneapolis) and Herb Brooks (St. Paul) statues. Next time you’re here we’ll need to visit Kirby Puckett and Harmon Killebrew. 😉

  4. Kristabella – there are some statues in Philly that need some “attention” should you care to visit!
