Imagine you’re walking home from the bar at midnight on a Saturday and you see this on an otherwise-abandoned John Street.

Illini football beat UConn by 8 points
Cue the Twitter mobs all rising up in union at once to say “a win is a win.”
Sure, it’s a road win. And road wins are nice. But UConn is honestly one of the worst teams in the FBS.
UConn’s quarterback was a third-string true freshman who only had one other scholarship offer (from renown pigskin powerhouse UMass), and he seemed to have no problems shredding up the Illini secondary. Maybe he’s an overlooked prodigy, but more likely, we suck.
Anyway whatever here are some highlights:
This is a really neat look at how old theaters are seeing a revival lately. Too bad for all the small towns that destroyed their theaters to build a bank (looking at you, Monticello).
This also reminds me of the Rialto Theatre in downtown Champaign (121 W. Church). If that doesn’t sound familiar, it’s because the Rialto’s marquee is gone, and the hall now sits behind retail and goes un-used. Yikes.

I, too, would like to know how many times semis hit the railroad bridge.
And furthermore, does it affect the structural integrity of the bridge?
