If this includes Oak Park then Hemingway might have been a classmate so it's way out of my depth.

Does Lake Shore Drive go thru Skokie?



No--in fact, when it ends at its northern terminus you're still several miles south of Evanston.

Interestingly enough, the makers of "When Harry Met Sally" made a crucial geographic error. After Harry and Sally rendezvous at the U of C to drive to NYC, you then see them driving north on LSD with the Hancock Building in the background--this is most assuredly NOT the way to drive if they are headed to NYC.

No, that is due west of Chicago. We north suburbanites never headed out that way unless it was to bury a loved one at Waldheim Cemetery.

And this is why you are the "Old" Bear.

That looks a lot nicer than the industrial waste of Northern Indiana and Southern Illinois on the Chicago Skyway

I bicycled through that industrial wasteland once. Thought I was back home in Jersey. Reminded me of Linden.

The worst smells we experienced on our yearly summer road trips came when driving through Gary. The NJ Turnpike has nothing on it.

Actually, my mother was at Oak Park HS when Hemingway and Frank Lloyd Wright Jr. were there.

Old Bear I am just seeing your posts about the original suburban league. I played for Niles in that era. It's a great part of the world and those high schools continue to turn out student athletes at an impressive rate, some of whom make it to the Ivies.

My mother was in the last graduating class of Niles before it became Niles East (when Niles West was created). Of course, Niles (East) has for a long time been closed.

The two longest bus trips I remember were Waukegan in HS and Cornell at Brown.

A Duke blog has a story up about Mike Buckmire, a 6'2: guard from Germantown Friends, who will be a walk-on for the 2017 class. The author feels he will is a hidden talent, who could earn a full scholarship for next season.

He had 1,144 career points and averaged 22.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.2 assist last year. According to the article, he was recruited by IL and Division III programs.

CoBL has some information on him, but I don't know if he was talked about on this board. Does anyone which conference schools, if any, gave him offers and why he did not elect to go to the IL?
