• Hey, it’s pretty nice here!

Several months ago I attended an Evanston High School basketball game against our archrival, New Trier, which, as you all know, is the alma mater of our very own Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

That game—a classic—went into overtime when Reid Berman, a New Trier guard, hit a cold-blooded, last-second three-point shot.

Thankfully, Evanston went on to win in overtime, sending me and my fellow E-town old-timers into paroxysms of ecstasy.

Oh, happy day!
