The Dude on the Right
Labor Day delayed our “Weekend Wrap-Up!” podcast, but Stu Gotz starts things off by trying to figure out why I’m not going to read “The Governor” by former Illinois Governor Rod Blagejovich. Meanwhile, as I’m ruining the podcast with coughing fits as I get over a cold, Stu isn’t suffering from his allergies, at least while we are recording.
It being Labor Day weekend, though, for me it was fairly relaxing as I was dealing with said cold, although I did clean the garage with my BFF and catch “Office Space” and “Mean Girls,” while Stu saw some movie no one heard of called “Big Stan.” Stu did not care for it.
But the big news in Chicago was Oprah shutting down Michigan Avenue for her kick-off special with the Black Eyed Peas, among others, and nationally President Obama was going to talk to kids to tell them to stay in school, but some people were afraid. Of what, Stu and I aren’t really sure, but I give some ideas why.
And finally, Stu caught “Whatever, Martha!” with Jennifer Koppelman Hutt and Alexis Stewart, for whatever reason, even though he gets the name wrong, calling it “Really, Martha!”, and maybe he should have asked Martha Stewart for her advice because he took down the kiddie pool, much to the dismay of the little Gotz’s.
Fall is coming, so is football, so next week we will probably give our Chicago Bears rundown, and maybe catch a movie in a theater, but for now…
That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the
