Cool Temps/Cool News!

I feel like a steamroller flattened me today.

And yet I still went to work. Bleah.

The weather hasn’t helped much. It got up to a blistering 63 degrees today. Brrrr! Talk about a chilly August.

I’m coughing and hacking up lungs left and right. Now ain’t that a pretty sight? 🙂

OOOH I forgot something cool to tell you!

This weekend I’ll be with the Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus as we sing the National Anthem at the Chicago Cubs game!

Yup that’s right, we sing the National Anthem before the Cubs vs. Dodgers game at 12:20 PM CDT on Saturday, August 14 at beautiful Wrigley Field.

This will be the second time we will have done this– the first time was September 27, 2003, at a certain double-header game where the Cubs clinched the division title for the first time in 14 years. And after we sang, we got to see BOTH games! It was an awesome experience. Here’s a few pics of that glorious event!


Lining up to go in and SING! (That’s me front and center. I was the first one to walk on the field. It was INCREDIBLE.)


Oh say can you see….


There were 90 of us there– the most that’s ever sung the National Anthem at Wrigley. And the FIRST Gay-identified group, ever.


Our name up in lights on the Scoreboard!

So anyway, if you have cable and get Fox Sports, watch for us… Saturday, August 14 at 12:00 PM CDT. We might just be on TV 🙂 (We were televised last time.)

OK that’s all the big wonderful news I had to post… back to my regularly scheduled boring life. 😛
