yesterday the 2007 peabody awards were presented at the waldorf-astoria here in new york city. among the award winners was "mad men," the amc critically acclaimed series about the rough and tumble world of madison avenue advertising men. coming off its first season, mad men won the golden globe for best drama, and its lead, jon hamm, took home the golden globe for best actor!
so why i am a writing about this on my erstwhile blog about running? well, the creator of mad men, matt weiner, was in town to accept the award and our wives, linda and pat, were college roommates. in conjunction with the awards ceremony, there was a premiere of the first episode of season two at the museum of modern art last night. linda invited pat to go to the screening with her.
so stay tuned, later today i'll post some of pat and linda's photos from the event.
