I'm Special!!

Yesterday, in the mail, I received an application for a Black Visa card. "Membership" is limited to only the top 1% of U.S. Residents (what is that...3 million people??), so it's pretty exclusive. Yeah right. To be a member only costs $495 a year. And what does this card offer? From what I can tell, a 13% APR and "24-hour world class Concierge Service ready to assist me with all of my business, travel and leisure needs". Oh and in the fine print it says the first day any payment is late, the introductory offer rate (13%) changes to the default rate of 27%. Yeah....isn't that nice. What a bunch of hooey.

Went to the Blackhawks game tonight and we won in overtime, 3-2. What a game. I didn't think we were going to pull it out!!
Here's the group I went with: Aussie Rick, Bill the Bear and Aussie Deb. We met at The Beer Bistro down on Madison, had a few brews and shared a pizza before taking the free shuttle bus over to the game. Then we walked home afterwards. Thank you Bill for getting the tickets for us!

During the game the guys in front of me were calling me "Pat" or "Foley" as I had my announcing voice going, which can sound like the BlackHawks announcer (when I'm at my best and he's at his worst). It helped that the Calgary goalie is Kiprusoff, which sounds awesome if you yell it with a little bit of soprano in your voice.

Whoops. My bad. We walked Rick and Debbie home and then I drove. Billy took a cab.
