Oprah & Black Eyed Peas Shut Down Michigan Avenue

Yeah, I know the picture isn’t the greatest, but all I had was my phone and you get the point.

Oprah has completely shut down Michigan Avenue (from Wacker to Ohio, at least) today for the taping of her 24th Anniversary show.  The musical guests are the Black Eyed Peas and they are kicking off the show and are rehearsing as I type this.  I just went over there to scour the scenario, and it’s a good old fashioned zoo on the Mag Mile.  All kinds of creatures and humans down there taking part in the tomfoolery.  If anyone has the clout to shut down Michigan Avenue, it’s Oprah.   You have to applaud that. 

My only question is, why would she be doing it so big for her 24th anniversary?  No one celebrates a 24th anniversary, except maybe conjoined twins (POW!).  Could we see an announcement regarding the 2016 Olympics today?  Is there some other force at work here?  2016 is written all over this pickle party.  I’m just sayin’…

Someone get the Bum-Stasher on Line One.
