March Madness

3 Ball Total Equilibrium Tank (Dr. J Series), Jeff Koons, 1985

The three teams that I care about in this year’s basketball tournament were all second seeds. Consequently, they easily beat their first round rivals today. They being Michigan State, Purdue and Michigan. Sorry Rey, but I’m headed to Ann Arbor tomorrow. It is still a long way to the finals, let alone any of the other lesser accolades, but it is always nice to sail through this first round without any upsets.

We started with an architectural tour that took us back to our hotel and beyond. The great fire not only germinated Chicago’s architectural revolution, but also served to protect it too. The walk ended at the cultural center, which we had seen before. We then began our stroll to the north. We revisited the architecture society and toured their museum. It is much improved in their new locale.

Heading north, we walked the Miracle Mile, with a side trip to the MCA. After its closing, we continued north on foot and eventually landed in a bit of a hole-in-the wall treasure of an Italian restaurant, on Wells. After dinner it was only a short stroll to Second City.

We had tickets to the She the People show. We got there early and scored primo seating. This is a reprise show. It was funny and lived up to all my expectations as this theater’s status as an incubator for SNL. The show purported itself as a girlfriend’s guide to sisters doing it for themselves. I was perfectly seated as the object of white male hegemony and in the second act, I got my just desserts.
