Finally Getting My Ferris Bueller Sing-Along

If you are a pronounced fan of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", if you are a child of the 80's and it and not "The Breakfast Club" changed your life, and if you have written about "Ferris Bueller" again and again and again, in various platforms and arenas, and if on top of that you not only live in Chicago but WORK in the same business district where Ferris's dad worked and where Ferris (as only Ferris could) commandeered a parade float to lead the mid-workday show of mid-workday shows by unleashing "Twist and Shout" on an unsuspecting but grateful populace, then you have constant daydreams of your own "Twist and Shout" In Chicago Moment.

Who knew that my "Twist and Shout" In Chicago Moment would finally happen at the same baseball field where our intrepid trio turns up for a little while in the left field stands with Bruce Springsteen, of all people, acting as Ferris Bueller? (And Eddie Vedder and Tom Morello acting as Sloane and Cameron? Evidence.)
