This is the only conclusion I can possibly draw.
May 2004. Our wedding is catered by the Hearty Boys. It's, of course, awesome. We had a great experience with their catering and would recommend it to anyone planning an event in Chicago. ANYWAY. One year later, we turn on the TV, and there they are on the first season of the Food Network's Food Network Star. (Food Network Food Network Food Network. It's like they're trying to drive up their own search-engine results.)
They went on to win - you can still see their show on the network if you want to get up early on Sunday.
This morning, I check my computer, and my high school Facebook network is all a-flutter - one of ours is on the new season of Project Runway! Steve was the founding member and president of the "jew crew" in our high school, of which I was treasurer or something (hey, my memory's not that great) - and, perhaps more apropos to what he's doing now, he made my prom dress in 1997. That dress is still in my closet, even though I haven't tried to put it on in five or six years - a gold asian-inspired top with a hoop skirt.
It was fun.
The only thing that makes sense, here, is that Steve Rosengard will go on to win Project Runway, or our streak ends at one. So, good luck, Steve! If we had basic cable, we'd be pulling for you!
