I suppose any time OPRF and Fenwick square off in an athletic event, that's the best matchup (and rivalry) in town. In over a decade and change of area sports coverage, I've also discovered that the annual baseball series between OPRF and Lyons Township is about as good as it gets.
Chardonnay, a Burgundian grape, held strong sway for years, and Kendal-Jackson Chardonnay is still the top-selling wine in the world (2.2 million cases per annum). Now Pinot, also Burgundian, seems to rule. However, there are rumblings of a renaissance in California-made Italian wines.
On Saturday I attended my first, "The Race That's Good For Life" annual race and I must say I was extremely impressed by the entire experience. A record crowd turned out to support Oak Park's annual race. There were races for men, women and kids and a feeling of fellowship, fun and plenty of competitive running permeated the race headquarters scene at OPRF.
