Did I tell you who I saw eating lunch at Petterino’s? Scottie Pippen. I caught a glimpse of someone from the corner of my eye and knew it had to be someone famous. They had the beautiful person look going. Then I realized it was Scottie Pippen. Did I just say Scottie Pippen was beautiful? Yes. Yes I did. He was a very pretty man in person. He was sitting outside having lunch and he looked a bit surprised that everyone was just walking by and not recognizing him. His companions even looked unimpressed, they were texting and chatting on the phone. I hung around and observed for a few minutes, snapped a photo, and seriously considered striking up a conversation. Maybe tell him thanks for all the entertainment in the 90′s, or perhaps curse him for all the hangovers I suffered going out to watch all the games at the bar. Good times, but I clearly remembering after a few years of winning I was kinda hoping for a few loses that would translate to an evening in. But I digress.
You know who else I saw? Coach Ditka. Not in person, though I have met him in person at his restaurant. I actually spotted him on Elizabites, a great Chicago foodie blog I follow. Recognizing his famous face and commenting ‘Ditka’s. Da bearz!’ won me a guest spot on Elizabites. Check it out, I gave my thoughts on a favorite place in the city, Pastoral.
All this Chicago sport talk is making me hungry for a sassage sammich. Or maybe a kilbasse. I’m off to The Jewels.
