Brandon and I have been collaborating on the blog and like some readers, I felt it was too early to give up now. Conan is going on tour with his "The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television Tour” that makes two stops in Chicago on May 19 and 20. The shows sold out right away, and there's hint of a third? (You'll sell that one out, too!)
We'd like to get all the people who couldn't get tickets (that includes us -- sad face) to get together for one or both of those nights to let Conan know that we want him to make a new home here. Meanwhile, let's keep the blog going. If you have another specific reason you think Conan should come to Chicago, let's hear them.
Join the Facebook group "Chicago Wants Conan," and send in your reasons. I'll post them on the blog. Make a video. Write a song. Let's hit 5,000 followers/fans/friends by April 1st, 2010 (no joke). Tell your friends to get on board.
Let's kick things off with a fun way to get involved. I'm a huge haiku fan. Let's write haikus for Conan. It goes a little something like this:
first line = 5 syllables
second line = 7 syllables
third line = 5 syllables
Let's get creative. I'll start us off.
Conan O' Brien!
River runs green once a year;
we can do it more!
