Don’t cross check the lion (and other Chicago images)

OK, so I know I failed to offer more Iron Ranger “On the Road” tales from my Chicago trip last weekend. I got mired in conference business and then on the last day I spent 12 hours at O’Hare International Airport fighting for passage back to my native land here in northern Minnesota. More on that in this Sunday’s column in the Hibbing Daily Tribune. Meantime here are some photos from my first day in Chicago, before the conference when I rode the train into the city.

I got there the day after the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup.

They put blood in the fountain at city hall when that happens — actual game blood.

Mechagodzilla pooped in Millennium Park. The people were pretty excited about that.

An eastern European couple took my picture near there. My pockets were full of maps and unnecessary items. Because I didn’t want to look like a tourist!

No dooooogs alloooooooowed! (This means you, Snoopy).

Unfortunately most of my trip was spent in the suburbs, which I found much less interesting. Maybe it’s because this is the image I was left with on a road near my house before I left:

It’s good to be home.
