They don't get Fox Soccer there, I called last night. Totally ruined my buddy's and my plans to get there on time and watch the game while we wait, so now we're going to Fado in River North for it.

My friend that bartends there told me they were letting the first 100 or so people take their sweet ass time and never cut off their wristbands. People were probably getting back in line so that's why they ran over time.

I wouldn't be surprised if that happened. By the time I got to go, they were herding everybody like cattle.

The one lady on the stage was yelling hurry up or you won't get your picture. I was thinking about how funny it would be if they had to issue refunds.

After being there for six hours I might have started a riot if I didn't get a picture.

Sounds like I made the right decision in not going. Don't know if I could take 6 hours in a bar on a work night.

I was told Harris Bank (a big sponsor of the Hawks) has a private cup viewing going on right now with Patrick Sharp there. One of my sister's best friends managed to get an invite to that.

Apparently Anheuser-Busch brought it to my office in 2010, they're a huge client of ours. Wonder if that will happen again.

I'd rather drink Icehouse than Busch Light. The only redeeming thing about Busch Light is camouflage cans...

the only reason busch light is "good" is because it doesnt taste like complete **** like other cheap beer. and ive never seen busch light in camo cans, i think thats only regular busch.
