Following an afternoon field trip to Lincoln Park, a report was confirmed that NBC is dropping the original Law & Order franchise from its primetime schedule.
Say it ain’t so Peacock. It will be interesting to see if Liam will grow up and remember his Dad watching Law & Order religiously just like I remember my parents watching classic cop shows Cagney and Lacey and Hill Street Blues. (Fun Fact – Did you know that we live two blocks from the police station used for the TV series? It is now home to the UIC Police. Check the link for footage.)
Although not my favorite L & O franchise–Special Victims Unit tops my list–the original initiated me into this classic series. Jerry Orbach was the actor who really epitomized the police drama in this era. There is talk about a new series beginning, Law & Order: Los Angeles. Where’s the Windy City edition, Dick Wolf?
Back to Lincoln Park. Land of Nod was the destination and SulliMom finally picked out her very own diaper bag. She went with a Skip Hop selection–fine choice. It’s no Diaper Dude, but a close second.
After the Land of Nod stop we stopped by The Container Store. It might be the greatest store. Ever. I’m a sucker for storage containers, office stuff and paper products. I guess we should have purchased the My Dad Is A Geek onesie we saw at Land of Nod.
I’ve had a lot of Firsts over the last week or so.
Another inauguration took place today for me when I was introduced to Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. This product is made with Peruvian Balsam to help with the common newborn symptom of Chapped A**.
So far so good. It has a nice texture to it, decent scent and the tube looks pretty unique. We’ll see if it works; it’s only day one for Liam and the diaper rash ointment.
A little father-son time.
FUN WITH MUSIC: We spent a little time as a family with the DVR tonight. Law & Order SVU, Friday Night Lights and ESPN’s 30 for 30 film, The 16th Man were on the menu. I like to do a little shimmy during the Law & Order theme music. SulliMom despises it and repeatedly requests the extinction of it, but tonight Liam joined me. It actually soothed him during a fussy period. Sorry Molly, the L & O dance isn’t going the way of the dinosaur.
FNL: How good is Friday Night Lights? Big fan.
MOVING THE CHAINS: Long time Chicago Rush fan and friend Jen Gilbert sent me a video via Facebook from the fan trip to Milwaukee to see the Rush and the Milwaukee Iron play a little Arena Ball Friday night. It showed some fans taking the Allstate Arena first down chant, MOVE THOSE CHAINS, on the road to the Bradley Center. Here’s a link to the video. (Not sure if you’ll be able to access if you’re not a Facebook user or a Friend of Jen.)
