I’m not much of a sports fan and I never watch baseball, but even I am getting excited about the Chicago Cubs making it to the 2016 World Series! I just watched the winning game last night and it was really exciting to see the city of Chicago going crazy over the win that put them into this year’s World Series. Probably the best known Cubs fan out there is Wilmette, Illinois native, Bill Murray, so this week I’ve got some Bill Murray/Chicago Cubs links for your clicking perusal. And then there’s some previews of what’s coming up here via the MBIP Coming Attractions. So there!

Tomorrow, it’s our fourth Saturday Night Vegetarian Meal (out of twelve)l and since October is National Pizza Month, myself and Ben went to a pizza place here in Peoria and the pizza is pictured above. Can you guess where it’s from? Tuesday we travel to Morton for our 21st sandwich in our year-long, “A Year In The Life Of A Sandwich Tour,” and then on Wednesday we’ll be heading to Washington, Illinois for a pre-Halloween candy Shop Hop. Thursday I’m planning a stop at a business that I’m wondering why the fuck they’re still open since summer is over. And I have no idea about Friday because I might have to work Thursday night which could kind of throw a wrench into any sort of plans I’m thinking about. Okay, all that stuff is coming up, go Cubs go, blah, blah, blah and have a great Sunday afternoodle! We’ll see you all tomorrow!
