Oh, it’s on

Wednesday, Mar 5, 2014

* I caught more than a little good-natured grief while I was out on the town last night regarding my admittedly non-plungy Polar Plunge.

And today, Sen. Bill Cunningham rubs it in…



Whatever, dude.

* Our page was in the top fifteen of all 2,466 Special Olympics Chicago fundraisers. I searched for “Cunningham” and didn’t find any results.

So, top that, Senator.

…Adding… How about we do a caption contest on that second Cunningham photo? I’ll donate $100 to Special Olympics Chicago in the name of the funniest commenter. And I’ll shame Sen. Cunningham into at least matching it.

Heh.

…Adding More… Always a good sport, Sen. Cunningham says he’ll donate $200 in the name of today’s winner. Thanks!

    The 2nd photo looks like he’s used to burying his head in the sand. Not healthy for the state, or, if he stayed there long enough, him either.


  2. - Anon - Wednesday, Mar 5, 14 @ 10:42 am:

    The money raised is fantastic.

    But it was raised so we could see you plunge!

    I’d say you owe us a Cunningham-style faceplant!


  3. - circularfiringsquad - Wednesday, Mar 5, 14 @ 10:43 am:

    what a beautiful way to remember this important charitable event :)


  4. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, Mar 5, 14 @ 10:46 am:

    Hey - some folks go full submersion during a baptism and some go for a sprinkle. It is still a baptism, sir!

    I am also not seeing you singing, “Shall We Gather By The River” when you are doing this either - so forgo the holier-than-thou.

    Rich - you are saved. At least ankle down.


  5. - I'm New Here - Wednesday, Mar 5, 14 @ 10:46 am:

    Rich, I don’t think the water made it above your ankles.

    We’re used to broken promises from elected officials. But from our favorite statehouse reporter?


  6. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Mar 5, 14 @ 10:49 am:

    I never promised to go all in. Not once. Not ever.

    “Frightened swimmers flee in fear when a great white senator was spotted in Lake Michigan.”


  10. - PublicServant - Wednesday, Mar 5, 14 @ 10:52 am:

    When someone says they were in the top 15, you can be pretty sure that means that they were in 15th place, but we were in the top 15 sounds a lot better. Congratulations in any case Rich. I’m just sensitive to rankings having just gone through my 3rd child’s college application process…again.


  11. - Bill Cunningham - Wednesday, Mar 5, 14 @ 10:53 am:

    You’re right, Rich. The Special Olympics will probably take your fundraising ability over my belly-flopping prowess any day. I’ll kick in $200 in the name of the caption contest winner.

    And kudos to the other General Assembly members who took the Polar Plunge: Fran Hurley, Ann Williams, and John Mulroe.


  12. - Frosty-The Snowman - Wednesday, Mar 5, 14 @ 10:55 am:

    They say “Real men” only splash water in their face unless they can see huge blocks of ice the size of icebergs floating in the water alongside of them while polar bears swim nearby. Our senior ladies sewing circle totally understands your timidity and hesitation to “catch a cold”, Mr. Miller. Now you make sure that you eat the chicken soup that we girls are sending to you.

    “Sen. Cunningham still picking sand from between his teeth. Note to self: next time try diving into something deeper than 3 inches”


  16. - Credibility - Wednesday, Mar 5, 14 @ 11:01 am:

    -I never promised to go all in. Not once. Not ever.-

    Probably should’ve put that disclaimer in there. Did you violate the pure language of plunge? Maybe not. But you certainly violated the spirit of the plunge. Kudos on the fundraising, it’s truly admirable, but the credibility issue may cause some folks to ask questions the next time you solicit donations in exchange for something you say you will do.


  17. - logchain - Wednesday, Mar 5, 14 @ 11:02 am:

    I think helping to raise money for charities is a great thing, but this seems to me to be a risky way to do it. Just wondering how many people will get sick from doing it! It AIN’T a normal thing to do! Rich, you are the smartest one of the bunch. LOL

    “Splish Splash”
    written by Bobby Darin, enhanced by VanillaMan

    Splish, splash
    I was diving for cash
    Long about a Saturday morn… yeah!
    Rub-a-dub
    Just pretendin’ I’m a sub
    Almost as naked as the day I was born.

    Well… I stepped into the lake
    And my knees began to quake
    But I made the kids a promise
    And God knows I’m not a fake.

    And… then-a… squash, squish
    My nads then made a wish
    Well… how were they to know
    The Polar Plunge was on.

    They were freakin’ and a shreakin’
    Reelin’ with the feelin’
    Freezing into jelly
    Tryin’ to get into my belly… yeah!

    Bing, bang
    I saw the whole gang
    Pretending to be having fun… yeah…
    Slip slop
    The lifeguards a Chicago cop
    Figurin’ how to work a frozen gun.

    There was Tiny Dancer with-a Jimmy Fallon
    He’s wearing a business suit and really yellin’
    A-well-a…. swim, swum
    My feet got really numb
    And I tripped, falling onto my face… yea!

    I was a freakin’ and a shreakin’
    Reelin’ with the feelin’
    The icy water freezin’
    I’m finding Miller n’ teasin’… yeah!

    Yes… I was a posing for some selfies
    Playin’ on ice shelfies
    Yeah… I was a movin’ and a groovin’ … woo!
    We were a reelin’ with the freezin’… ha!
    We were a rollin’ and a strollin’
    Movin’ with the groovin’
    Splish, splash… yeah!

    I was a splishin’ and a splashin’… one time…
    I was a splishin’ and a splashin’… woo-woo!
    I was a movin’ and a-groovin’…
