Re: Playoff Ticket Lottery

There's a Promotions folder? Yeah mine was there. Between my wife, me, my brother, and friends we had about 15 email addresses and all were rejections. I think I read somewhere it was about a 20-1 chance of being selected. Not including this board, I know about 45 people/email addresses that regist...

Re: STH Thread

I haven't heard a peep. I hope they don't go the Blackhawks route for you guys. All electronic tickets. Wouldn't really bother me that much, but I doubt it. I haven't heard or seen anything yet even electronically, though. My dad's friend in the 80's had season tickets and had unused stubs for the ...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

Both my parents and in-laws went to see Sully and loved it. They recommended my wife and I see it. My wife and I had a date night Friday and went to see "Don't Breathe" we made a much better choice(not that Don't Breathe was great)

Re: Playoff Ticket Lottery

I liked the VWW, but that was because I could get about 150 windows open between 4 computers at work. Almost always was able to get tickets that way. The lottery is the most fair so I understand why they went that route. I would have thought they would have sent out the winners emails by now seeing ...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Haha I was over at WSI for my weekly dose of schadenfreude and I came across this comment: Whatever, no matter what happens--even if the Cubs win ten titles in a row-- nothing will ever change the fact that the Sox beat them there. I don't care how big any Cubs World Series parade could possibly be...

Not sure if the 2003 Marlins were on paper worse than the Cubs.

School pizza is better.



I didn't mind the school pizza as long as it was cooked medium well to well done. Pizza and french fries are the only food I prefer cooked this way. Problem was the pizza in school was usually undercooked.

Oh man, I just remembered how much I miss HomeMade Pizza Co..

A handful of locations in the Chicago area were taken over by something ...

The best frozen pizza, especially if you have a pizza oven. Many bars and grocery stores in the Chicago area carry them(Whole Foods, Sunset, Woodmans) They aren't cheap, probably $5 per pizza in the store or $8 at a bar. http://www.eastsidecafepizza.com/ http://www.eastsidecafepizza.com/sitebuilderc...

What exactly is New Haven style? What's a good example in the Chicago area if any? Armitage Pizzeria was THE place for it, but it's sadly closed. Coalfire is the next best bet, or Piece. Or you could voyage all the way out to Wauconda and go to Slyce. Stupid name, but man, I'm glad I have relatives...
