Well, back in Los Angeles from a couple of weeks in Chicago. A fine trip, and lots o' good eating -- particularly deep dish pizza and Greek, and my fave Charlie Beinlich's (hopefully more about them later), and several other stand-bys. The only thing annoying was that because the Cubs were playing their big rivals St. Louis, two of those games were on national television. The reason this is annoying is that when I'm in Los Angeles, the only time I get to see the Cubs is when they're on national TV, so those national games when in Chicago are wasted. Further, there's no local Cubs broadcast on those games, and I therefore don't get the local guys who I like. Happily, I can still hear Pat Hughes on WGN radio, but then I get to hear him all the time, even in Los Angeles, over MLB GameDay.
And yes, I know that this isn't a major issue, but hey, when your team hasn't won a World Series in 104 years, the little things tend to be what counts...
