Heading to Chicago in the morning

Well, as a sit here on the heels of a Team Boom loss in a tough battle in the Tempe Rec League championship game, I am completely wired.  Which works to my advantage, at the moment, as I am packing for a trip to Chicago in the morning.  This will be my third year in a row heading to the Windy City for Lollapalooza weekend and a reunion with the friends I grew up with, and my second trip to Chicago this summer.  We aren’t actually going to the festival this weekend, but I’d recommend it, if you haven’t been.  We are getting a boat on Lake Michigan Saturday which should pretty sweet.

It was tough to lose in the championship tonight but things are good. Always excited about getting back to Chicago, when I can.  Still my favorite city in the world.  If you haven’t been, I highly recommend it (especially in the summer). There’s a reason Kanye West calls out “summertime Chi,” in particular, in the song “Good Life from his 2007 album, Graduation. (Kanye, I miss that soulful stuff, by the way, man.)

In fact, let’s close this post out with the video.   (Also, Chicago did not commission me to write this somewhat generic endorsement.  It’s just a great place, and felt like mentioning it.)

Have a great weekend, everybody.
