They just showed Rahm Emanual in the crowd. It seemed as if this was the last place he would want to be. Northwestern is taking after their mayor, seems like.

The excitement in this thread perfectly matches the excitement of the game.

Speak for yourself. I cleared my Thursday night when I found out Iowa v. Northwestern was the nightcap.

Ha! I'm at the game...it's boring here.
BTW, there's a guy on Northwestern's team wearing a yarmulke. Nothing wrong with that, I've just never seen a basketball player wearing one on the court.

Are there more NW or Iowa fans? I know its Chicago, but I'm not sure how many Wildcat fans would turn out.

More Iowa fans. Kinda sad.
BTW AJW, I left this question a couple of times in the past but never got a response from you as I'm sure you never looked at the specific thread again, but, is that a Penstemon in your photo? It looks to be out west.

Yes it is- Penstemon linarioides from SW Utah. Sorry - I remember you asking and I guess I didn't get to responding!

No problem. I'm a postdoc studying species distribution modeling of rare plants in the west.
