Great show last night at the Verizon center! The acoustics of the stadium were a little off though. The instrumental sounded awesome, but was drowning out Maynard’s voice. Nonetheless…it was a blast. Gordon (my brother) got the hook up from his friend Ed in San Diego. Ed works for Verizon, I think doing promotional stuff, so he got us two free tickets within a stones throw of the stage.
Gordon and I had made mention of not drinking too much – the old “I don’t drink much anymore”, “I ‘m too old”, “blah, blah, blah”. Sounded like the right move. However, libations got the better of us. I cracked open a liter of Belgium Abbey brown ale(9%) before we headed out to go with the 2 beers we had with the crab cake lunch. Well, it got silly. We were running out to get a few more beers during the opening act after putting down about 4 each at RFD before. Oh, and I made the wise decision to throw down the gauntlet and ask if we should have an Irish car-bomb before we left RFD. Like asking a kid if he’d like a cookie. It’s a sure thing.
So – Sunday morning…a little deaf, a little hung over, and a little heart burn. Gordon wanted to get some more beer when we got home. Thankfully nothing was open and 7-11 doesn’t sell any. But, we did get some big bite hotdogs, beef patty, and burritos. Another great idea by a bunch of 30 something dummies. Oh, good times with my brother. I wouldn’t expect anything less. When we get together and have the hall pass from the wives it’s like were 18 and 22 again – stupid.
Here’s Gordon after….
