Is there a particular time when this will all be going on? I think my wife and I will look to stop by around 9 or so.

Hmm, I'm only about a ten minute walk away from this place. I'll try and make it out but my wife gets a bit annoyed when I leave her and a 6-month-old at home while I go get sloshed. What's her problem?

I'll definitely be there, probably closer to 9:00. Can't wait to see the new-and-improved trophy!

Hangar thinks he'll get away with bringing the trophy into Comiskey Park on Opening Night! It would be funny to see Brooks Boyer's reaction.

Successful parenting requires delicate negotiation skills -- I'm going to hang with the trophy tonight and Mr. robiwho gets to go to a record collectors' convention tomorrow. Not quite sure if it's fair, however, as he'll have the kids when they're asleep and I'll have them tomorrow when they're awake! :o: :D:

This bar is my fav bar in the Chicago. The owner is great and he is my co workers cousin. They have one of the best staffs in Chicago. It is March Madness NO ONE should have to get permission from anyone to go out.

BTW I hope Duke is the # 16 seat next year for what they did to my brackets.

It was great seeing everyone tonight. We got to witness at least one "Stupid Cub Fan Moment" with Hangar!!!! At last, one of Henry's famous enounters was witnessed! Once he shakes the *cobwebs* off tomorrow, I'm sure he'll post it. Too bad the pic cannot be uploaded without some censorship.....

I totally forgot about that photo until I saw it this morning. Hilarious!

It was great to finally see The Trophy and meet some fellow WSI members. Definitely looking forward to Puffers next weekend!

I can't believe we got to witness Stupid Cub Fan Moment 9,894! If only you could post that picture, itsnotrequired! I actually have to give the Cub fan props for playing along -- and she was a lot less annoying than the Boston College guy who wouldn't leave "Stephanie" alone! ChiSoxGirl, you handled him so well!

Great time last night; it was good to see everyone.

Than again if you harass enough women, one is bound to be named Stephanie (though the odds of Stephanie actually wanting to talk to drunk boy are astronomical).

Great to see several posters and friends of WSI at Finley Dunnes. Hanger I hope you didn't cross the line with your cub provoking antics after I left. :wink:

Waking up at 5 am was not fun. :o: Though my draft went well. :cool:

I had to put the drunk random in a cab. He thought my husband/boyfriend was every guy I was standing next to. He was going to give me $20 for putting him the cab.

DumpJerry
03-25-2006, 06:30 PM
That drunk guy from Bean Town was too much! Is seems like Jenn2080 and the woman he was hitting on at the bar got along real after they bonded over the experience. The Cub fan in the photo told Henry she hated the Sox...talk about asking for it! It was like pulling a gun on Dirty Harry.

Another WSI Gathering, more great times; they seem to go hand-in-hand!!! It was great to finally meet itsnotrequired, mjharrison72, etc., and great seeing Hangar, robiwho, robiwho's brother, and DumpJerry again. "Stephanie" here did herself proud in shoving off the Bostonian who probably introduced himself to me as "John" six times in five minutes. I finally put him in his place and walked away. :bandance: We didn't close the place this time around, but DumpJerry, Hangar, and myself left around 1:30a.

My pictures are all uploaded to my computer and I'll POST IT as soon as I have a chance tonight. I'll let you know when they're up.

I wouldn't miss this event for the world! I also recruited itsnotrequired last night to join us at Puffers!

If Mike is delivering his speech at 7:30, what time are we all getting there, 7?

The toast wont happen until everyone gets there. So maybe not at 7:30, that when we are all meeting.

I better get cracking on this speech, I've been out for a few days after getting my wisdom teeth pulled, I have a few days to starting penning this thing. I'm feeling some pressure here Heather.

Haha! We might just bump into eachother at Toronto Pearson Airport, because I'll be visiting my hunnie then!

P.S.: You might want to ask your mayor to beautify the city of Hamilton, because the view from the shorline of Burlington would look nicer, and would be much appreciated by myself and him!
