How about a new Christmas sweater?

The Cubs Legends video shown at the alumni night game featured Phil Cavaretta, another Lane alum.

How about a bottle of Exedrin Arthritis Fomula for writer's cramp?

John and June... you are slightly hilarious.  Steve... the Cavaretta feature was no coincidence at Alumni Night at Wrigley.  It was a special accommodation for us.  NOW... who can go see Rocketman this Saturday night?  If they are showing it at the Davis in Lincoln Square, we could all have a post-film drink together at the bar right there, or across the street at Daily News or Huettenbar.  Plenty of parking available in the hood.  What say you all?  Can't see show times for Saturday yet but I have to believe it'll still be there. Anybody in?

Hello all,

Yesterday afternoon, I passed by the Lane campus going north on Western avenue to my cousins house and I got to take a picture of the sign (shown below) that is on the corner of Western and Addison. I also passed by Hero's as I was crossing Addison. So, it raised a couple of questions:

1) Did we have any kind of sign there while we went to Lane? I do not remember anything on that corner, but 90% of the time I got on/off the Western bus at the southern part of the Lane Campus (Cornelia/Roscoe).

2) I noticed that Hero's was closed. But it still looks the same. I heard a while ago that it was going to be under new management, so is Hero's still in business and it is just closed on Sundays? I did not get a chance to view their hours as I was driving by.

Kenny, back when we were at Lane there was no sign on the corner that I remember.  It certainly wouldn't have said "Lane Tech College Prep". Not sure about Hero's reopening since what I heard was that it was closed for good.

There was a sign that identified the school with the old letter tiles for announcements out front.  Nothing fancy.

Heading to Cincinnati, Great American Ballpark, to watch our Cubs best the Reds!

Michelle Milkovic (Weiner)

Bob... maybe you could pitch today and bring us a Cubs win?

Heroes business was supposed to have been purchased 2 years ago but it's just been collecting dust since 2017.  Too bad... it would make a fantastic Alumni Center wouldn't it?  Anbody have about $900K they don't need?  Anyone?  Bueller?  Oh well... one can dream.  :)

Robert Cole

Only if the Alumni Center also serves Hero's subs!

Cubs SPANKED Reds yesterday, 6-0, including a Grand Slam!
I sat in the sun through 97 degree weather. But it was worth it for a W!

Timmy Wong

Robert, thanks for going out there and bringing us the W!!  This was good especially after your brother, Cole Hamel, went down on Friday!!

Hello and happy 4th of July all,

It is with a sad heart that there is news that Mad Magazine is shutting down after 67 years. From the monthly magazine that I used to collect religiously in my school years, to their paperbacks I had like Spy vs. Spy, Dave Bergs "The Lighter side of" and "Snappy answers to stupid questions", Don Martin, Sergio Aragones, etc. Here is one story about it:

For a time it was my #1 magazine, so I salute you: Well done "You Usual Gang of Idiots!". You will live forever in my heart and funny bone.

Robert Cole

Sigh! MAD Magazine and National Lampoon were what I spent my mispent youth on. Along with the underground comics from the local head shop. Yellow Dog comics and the Three Furry Freak Brothers. And Cheech & Chong albums!

Hey can we get some Bicentennial golfers out this year?  Or if you're like me and don't golf, come for barbeque after!  And/or consider sponsoring the event or donating a silent auction item.  All proceeds from this event go to the LTAA Teacher's Innovation Grant Program that will kick off as soon as school starts.

Really happy and stoked for the success of our own fellow-mate --- Mike Goi. I've recently seen announcements for the premiere-dates that will mark the return of Mike to feature-film-making – as Director and Director of Photography, for the movie ‘Mary’.

The worldwide premiere of ‘Mary’ is announced to take place at the internationally-renowned Fright Fest (in London) – on August 24th, and, the wide release of the film is then to hit theatres – on October 11th.

Everything I’ve seen is very-favorable and highly-anticipating the release of the film --- including an article posted to a well-regarded British website for trending music news and reviews (entitled "FrightFest 2019: 10 must-see horror films at the UK’s upcoming ‘Woodstock of gore’”), which cites the "must-see" ‘Mary’ with the following:

“From the mind behind Megan is Missing, one of the most harrowing cautionary tales ever put to film, Michael Goi makes a welcome return to the director’s chair with Mary, a film that’s being pitched as ‘The Shining meets The Conjuring’. Featuring an all-star cast headed up by Gary Oldman and Emily Mortimer, Mary navigates the murky waters of seafaring horror as a family looking to start a charter-boat business buys an abandoned ship that harbors sinister secrets. Of course, it’s not long before strange and frightening events begin to terrorize the family once out on the briny deep.”

All the best Mike Goi !!!

Here’s the official-trailer for ‘Mary’ [2 minutes]:

OK. I’ve come to realize that we have some sports aficionados (avid fans and historians) available here – and, I need some help.

As for me, while I enjoy a gathering for a good game, I am otherwise admittedly and overtly sports-ignorant (long-story – didn’t grow up with it), and – so, I’ll apologize in advance too – if this is way obvious or way simple.

Another lesser sports fan and I have been trying to figure who the guy is that's sitting at the table in this picture (we're assuming he is a notable someone). The picture was taken very-late-sixties to very-early-seventies in Chicago, and, if it is someone of note, assuming he is a football-player – likely a Bear.

Never heard of him but he's pretty dreamy...

And making an appearance at a drug store?  Was that a typical thing? I love the backdrop, especially the shelves of "Hair Tonics".
