St. Paddy's Day

Ohhhh, I knew I should have written this entry earlier today. Now it's after midnight, I'm tired and a bit tipsy.

Today I had a grand old time with no PT and no trip to the gym!! Yay!! In the morning I did some work and then headed over to Ricardo's for an afternoon of festivities. I thought he was making corn beef and cabbage for lunch plus whomever came later in the day, but much to my dismay, he had only just started the crockpot when I arrived around 1. Fortunately we were able to go to the bar across the street which had a very decent cornbeef sandwich. No cabbage, but the sandwich was tasty.

Around 5, just when the cornbeef and cabbage was ready, I headed down to Jak's Tap to meet Doug and Doug Jr. from the Bears games as well as my guest, Sausage King Andy. Benny Baseball was supposed to go with me, but he couldn't find anyone to cover his shift so I snagged Andy.

Pre-partying at Jak's was fun and the game was good too. The Bulls beat the world champion Celtics (albeit without one of their best players, Kevin Garnett) and we won a Big Mac since they scored over 100 points. Actually, Sausage won all the events on the game cards: tic tac toe, Hinkley Schmitt water truck race and the Dunkin Donuts Race (damn you Cuppy Coffee!!!). It was fun and good to see Doug and Doug Jr again as well as Sausage. Though he lives right across the street from my church, I don't see Sausage all that often....or at least I haven't in the last few months.

It's been ages since I've been to a Bulls game. And they won! Which is a novelty.

To pick a nit: Corned beef, not "corn beef." "Corned" refers to the preparation process, specifically the curing/brining process involving grains of course salt; the vegetable itself is not involved.

Ya know djf, I thought about looking up that up because I had typed it both ways, but I was too tired/tipsy to do it. Thanks!

I live to educate with my useless information.
