Any thoughts on how long it will take for a Loop skyscraper to sport "GO CUBS" in lights, or is that too painful a question to ask?

Yes, but the truth is, as much as we love nygirl (and we do), we have no idea if her alligances lie with Giant or Jet. The point being, if it were the Giants and somehow we had a Bears-Giants NFC championship game (Soldier Field, of course; forget the Meadowlands), I'm not sure what that will do to our relationship with our Gotham friend.

I mean, she is terrific, but if things get too hot around here, who is to say to emotions run too deep we won't be finding her a place next to Jimmy Hoffa in Giants Stadium?

^ I like Ohio State, North Western, and Rutgers. The NFL does not attract me for some reason. Family went and played for Ohio, family went to/goes to school at North Western, always liked Rutgers ever since I started watching College Football games not including Ohio and NWU. So technically I am a WildCat fan. Saftey?
To keep things photo-related here are a few favorite's I had saved from the last thread..






<< This vantagepoint on Mich. Ave. is pimp.


So is the one from Olive Park..









can I get a Holy Frijoles?

That first pic looks like you've been out at sea for months and you finally see some land in the distance. Except its glass and steel land...

Welcome back bud. Nice distance shot. Chicago looks best from the lake and I love how the Horizon distorts it a little.
