The Universe is a Jokester



Simon LeBon of sang "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" during the seventh inning stretch of last night's Cubs game.

How absolutely cool and fabulous is that? (I know I have mentioned my preteen love of Duran Duran before now.) He was superior to many of the celebrity singers in that he actually knew the words, sang with gusto, remembered that we root root root for the Cubbies, and ended with the shout of "let's get some runs." It was as if the universe wanted to give us a surreal little gift for our anniversary (on a side note: both Fred and I completely forgot it was the eighth anniversary of our marriage until my parents called us up last night). Of course, because it is this universe and we are Cubs fans, the universe couldn't actually let the Cubs' winning streak extend to five games last night. Oh no, that would be messing with the order of things and a black hole probably would have had to open up in the bleachers in order to restore the quantum balance.

Don't hate me...
But I met Mr. LeBon when I was a teen....
Many, many moons ago...
He was engaged to a gal that went to my ole high school in Canada...
In fact it is her voice that is moaning in Hungry Like a Wolf...

Claire Stansfield was the moaning woman on Hungry Like The Wolf?? LOL!

Uhh....no.


I love that Simon sang "Take Me Out.." with gusto, and took the time to learn the full song and it's history. Gotta love that man!
