very happy for the blackhawks

even though i have lived in California longer than i lived in ILL

theres no way i would ever root for any other team more than the Chicago team

except of course for the south siders in the junior circuit.

i am loyal, to a fault. it may be my biggest fault.

in order for me to turn my back you’ve probably done something pretty bad.

if not several things

many times.

the blackhawks, and their fans: amazing.

even when they werent very good, youd see people with those beautiful jerseys

all over the chicagoland area.

my mom sent me video of blocks and blocks and blocks around Wrigley Field

of Hawks fans in the streets cheering like crazy.

if i was there, id so be there.

blackhawk fans partying

had a nice day yesterday at the LA Press Club awards


besides doling out awards to high school, college, and professional journalists we gave love to Carl Reiner


Dianne on the left put on a great show at the Biltmore and Jill, our president seemed pleased


Buster has been a press club member since the 40s and brought the woman with the best dress


after helping set up, i was given a key to the day room, took a shower and threw on my suit.


st. biltmore was all quit lookin at my daughter, sharped dressed man


took the stairs cuz im fat


we had such a beautiful room to throw the bash. the chicken was good, the comedian was funny, all was well


rebecka and john had a good time, and it was nice to see them


speaking of, some of my kpcc friends were there. john and kristen won, as did josie and sanden and lots of other kpccers


carl reiner was funnier than i expected him to be


biggest surprise of the day? the dude from the nanny was there! patt the hat was stoked!

all in all, yes i dont like going to things like this, but in very small doses, it can actually be  funner than sitting around.

thanks obama!
