I couldn’t love a story more than this one: where a reporter and friends set out to show that Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is (mostly) possible.
Leigh Giangreco explores the day in a Washington Post feature story:
Given real-life time constraints and logistics, we had to make tweaks to fit every activity. First, it’s nearly impossible to find a parade and a home game for the Cubs on a weekday, but on Saturday, Sept. 10, we found both a game and the actual parade from the movie.
The Cubs and the parade? Now that’s well played. Fair play to the tweaks, and all the planning it took to take all of it in.
If you love Ferris Bueller, this story is worth your time.
