Big day yesterday, you guys. Big. Day. Let’s start from the beginning.
We woke up. We did stuff. We had a show. That’s it. End of story.
Haha. Jokey jokes. Let’s talk about it for realsies.
To begin, we had an early call time at the United Center with a very special Chicago celebrity who I’d love to tell you about but won’t because I refuse to spoil the video we did. You’ll see it soon enough and you’ll be like, “Thanks for not ruining it, Trey. You really had our best interests at heart and I think you seem like a pretty nice guy, all things considered.” So, you’re welcome, in advance.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t see some behind-the-scenes stuff from our video shoot, because even that was pretty awesome.
I mean, most people get to see the Bulls championship banners from the floor, which is great.
But how many people get to see the title banners from above?
And how many people get to stand above the Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen retired number banners?
And how many people just get to chill in the Bulls locker room like a bunch of bawses?
Needless to say, our United Center experience was great, especially if you’ve been a Bulls fan since you learned to walk which was the case for at least one of us who happens to be me.
Amazingly, that wasn’t even the best part of the day.
No, my friends, the best part of the day was our first live podcast, a taping of which you’ll be able to hear very soon. How great was this show? Perhaps a picture demonstration will help.
The good people at Red Car hooked us up with a gigantic room that looked like this before the show.
Cool, right? Right. And it was huge. And here’s what it looked liked afterwards.
That is a lot of people coming out to hear a podcast. That is a great audience who was ready to laugh at everything and just have a great time. You guys were awesome. I mean, a fan showed up in a Jason Kapono Bobcats jersey, and that is just something you don’t see every day.
So we did the show, cracking wise and even using a clever visual gag wherein I appear to be three times bigger than the rest of the guys.
We were just OK. The real stars of the show were Bulls radio duo Bill Wennington and Chuck Swirsky, who totally killed last night.
We even got Kelly Dwyer from Ball Don’t Lie out to talk Bill Wennington trivia with Bill Wennington.
To top things off, we even got a classic Tas Melas pun, which I’ll let you figure out yourself.
All in all, just a great day. A perfect crowd, perfect guests and lots of fun had by all. We couldn’t have asked for a better first stop. Hidey-hey.
As I mentioned before, you’ll have a chance to hear our Chicago podcast very soon, as JD is just putting the final touches on it now. And you’ll also get to see our very special United Center video too. You’re going to be very happy with all of this stuff.
Now it’s off to Portland, where we’re anticipating having another great experience. Word up to everyone involved with Chicago, but it’s on to the next one.
