Okay, the Rays are doing great. The Red Sox are leading. The Brewers and the Cubs need to win Saturday!

Detroit beat San Antonio tonight to take a two game lead in the WNBA finals as well. Not good for San Antonio, but I am still cheering for San Antonio, because someone special likes Becky.

The Texas National Motorcycle Rally was sensory overload tonight. We arrived at 5:45 PM just minutes after the main gates were open to the public. We toured the Vendor Area and looked at lots of bikes. I was like a kid in a toy store. I had more questions than my "guide" could handle. It was quite funny at times.

We arrived at the concert venue in time to hear Ghost Riders perform. They were really good. The next band was Blackfoot. They were a little more on the hard rock side, but they had some good songs. The main attraction at the concert venue tonight was the Marshall Tucker Band. Enough said if you know Southern Rock!

My "guide" and I stayed until 11:15PM. We were both tired and wanted to make sure we got home before the bars closed so that we can get back out there by Noon tomorrow to watch the Drag Racing Eliminations, and then stay for the rest of the Day's activities.

Having said that, I need to sleep, as I am meeting the "guide" at 11:30 AM Saturday so that I can drive tomorrow. Fair is fair, and since I was the passenger tonight, I get to drive tomorrow. So, sleep tight and sweet dreams. More tomorrow after sensory overload part two.
