Four teams and a wedding
I was at a wedding this weekend. It was nice to remind myself that when I arrived here two years ago I didn't know a soul but in that time I have made some good friends. The wedding was in a small place called Janesville, Wisconsin (population 61,104) and there was one hell of a party at the reception, sparked by 3 best men, 3 groomsmen, 2 ushers and 6 bridesmaids.
I got home this afternoon to catch the end of Chicago Fire's
2nd leg match in the MLS
play-offs. Chicago went to holders DC United and won 4-0 after a scoreless home leg.
They will now play favourites New England Revolution
next Sunday in Foxborough, MA for the Eastern Conference title. Colorado Rapids
and LA Galaxy
will contest the Western Conference title.
More of a turn up was Chicago Bears' win away at Detroit Lions
today. The Bears sit on top of NFC North
division and with the Bulls
' young exciting squad starting the new NBA season on Wednesday, maybe the White Sox's success
is the catalyst for more titles coming the way of this great sports city? The White Sox parade in the city on Friday was said to have attracted 1.7m people.
