Having covered a few conventions, I can tell you Scoop is absolutely correct.

The guy's wearing a Teddy banner. TR had over 80 votes on the first two ballots, but sank fast in the third. The winner was Charles Hughes, who lost to Wilson.

There is a Wilson Avenue, but it's quite a distance from 15th and Wabash, the site of the convention. I think Scoop was just trolling people.
