You've seen those guys in Wrigley's neighborhood.
"Who's got an extra?"
I think they have a union - they're always there and seem to be on every block the closer you get.
It's rarely happened to me, having an extra, but for instance one time I went way out of my way and actually found an nice old guy and his grandson and sold for face.
And I felt really good about it, the right thing to do and all that.
Today I'm gonna go down to Wrigley and talk to some scalpers.
See if Karma pays me back.
I'll probably end up buying in one of those apartment buildings on Addison next to that place that sells overpriced t-shirts - or maybe just wander up to one of the actual ticket windows.
Can't be a sellout today, right?
Anyway, you know I've been extremely slammed and today is a break so... I'm outta here.
A chance to take 3 of 4 from the Dodgers and, if that happens, equal their win total at 40.
I missed so much.
The guy with the baby thing, a 4-game winning streak, getting to 9 wins above .500, the Joe Maddon on-purpose-delay-of-game-to-steal-Kershaw's-attention...
Maybe something amazing will happen today.
I'll let you know.
2 quick stories.
Buddy of mine is at a restaurant, and one of his kids must have been wearing a Hawks' jersey, but anyway in walks Joel Quenneville who comes over to their table to shake everyone's hand.
That's just cool.
Another guy at work was at a Dierks Bently concert, and he's got this song called "Drunk on a plane".
So before the song he's talking to the crowd and says something like: "You need a really big cup to get drunk on a plane."
Then out walks Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Duncan Keith and some others and they're carrying the Stanley Cup.
Bentley hoisted it along with the other guys.
Went back to my office and googled the story.
Apparently, only the winning players are supposed to do that and it made some Twitter hockey fans mad.
Lighten up, man.
That Cup is a rolling party, it doesn't come around that often, and the whole deal of it showing up at a concert is just so hockey.
No other sport has their stars just out in public like that, and it's so... so hockey is the only way I can describe it.
Okay, see ya.
