So, I'm in the south Chicago suburbs this week as I attend math camp. Yes, you read correct. Math. Camp.
I'm an AP Calculus teacher and the College Board has recently reworked the curriculum I teach, which means I'm at a week long Advanced Placement Summer Institute in JediJeff's backyard. I guess he didn't want to see me mathing up the joint so he took off for Colorado yesterday. Someday our paths will cross, Jeff, someday.
I had a little time after math camp today and before the Cubs game was on television so I searched for a card shop in the map application on my iPhone and jumped in the car. I was excited to by some cardboard at a new store!
I wish my application would have shown this screen:
Or maybe I should have called first, because my app didn't mention that either store was permanently closed.
I was in an adventuresome mood and just took off driving in the south suburbs.
Did you know that the roads get really crowded around 5 o'clock on a weekday in Oswego and Naperville? You do now. You're welcome.
I'll call next time. Yes, I will call.
Tomorrow I'm road-tripping it to Wrigley to see my only scheduled Cubs game at Wrigley
Field this year. Wish the Cubs luck for me!
Wednesday I'll head to JediJeff's LCS, which I know is open. It's a crazy cool store and I can't wait to set foot inside again. It has . . . get this . . . two levels! Whoa!
So, while I'm hitting up the Cubs game and going to a cool card shop you should do something worthwhile as well: ENTER SPORT CARD COLLECTORS' Topps Tier One Contest! It's not everyday a blogger breaks a box of Tier One AND gives away one of the cards. Check it out!
