I remember thinking last night, "Hmmm. Should I get the shovel and head on outside? Get a leg up on all this snow that's falling?"
"Or should I stay here, on the couch, and watch the Blackhawks?"
"Should I go put on my giant rubber outside and fake hair on the inside rubber boots, a big scarf, some gloves, and my spazz-man red and black checked hunting cap with the earflaps that tie under my chin like I'm a 12 year old?"
"Or just stay in my jeans and socks and sweatshirt and Cubs hat?"
Then I remembered something that totally swayed the whole deal.
"Should I reach into the fridge and crack open a frosty cold one?"
The Fat Lady sang.
The Chicago Blackhawks officially creamed the Blizzard of 2011.
I think it was a shutout, in fact.
The Blackhawks had a couple hat tricks, a td, sixteen 3-pointers, and a long ball.
Oh yeah, they also smeared the Columbus Blue Jackets 7-4.
But now, it's the Depressing Channel 9 News vs. the Blizzard of 2011, and I think the Blizzard is up a couple points.
I better get out there now.
I mean, it's inappropriate to...reach into the fridge at 9AM on a snow day.
One last thing.
Reader Josh Johnson reminded me of the link to the Wrigley Field Earth Cam.
It doesn't seem to be working right now, but click on the photos below and note that when the "CHICA" part of the neon sign is out, what does it spell?
