Chicago is a great sports town with major league teams for Football, Baseball (two of them!), Basketball and Hockey. Hockey is the thing of the moment - the Blackhawks are two up in their best of seven Stanley Cup Final series against Philadelphia. Saturday's game was a high scoring thriller, and Monday night's was a violent 2-1 nail biter. We all get into it - even the Art Institute of Chicago whose lions proudly guard the Michigan Avenue entrance. Even more proudly now as you can see here.

I was in the AIC for discussions about some possible future projects with COT - never miss a photo op!
