About Last Night

What can you say about a 31-5 basketball team who lost? The Sweet Sixteen means never having to say, "I'm sorry." These kids were overachievers who won the conference and the tournament. My thanks to the Badgers for a fun season to watch.

We went to The Comedy Club on State St to see Heywood Banks last night. He's there again tonight and I recommend that you go if you can. It's been a long time since I laughed that hard. We get to see a dozen or so working comedians live every year and most are amusing without being knockouts. Heywood is right up there with Drew Hastings in my rankings. It's all about timing and irony and the unexpected. Go. See a show tonight.

Unfortunately I can't recommend a good restaurant across the street from the Comedy Club. We went to State Bar and Grill. The management hadn't thought that a Friday night with a Badger tourney game on TV and four shows within a block would be busy. There was one cook and four waitstaff who acted as if they'd never seen food before. An hour and ten minutes after we gave our order they brought out three of the four sandwiches which had been sitting on the counter waiting for someone to find them.
We wound up going across the street to Ian's for a slice of Macaroni and Cheese Pizza and a mad dash to the show.

Life is good. Today? It's Move A Fridgerator Day here at the ranch.
