The season is just about over. It has been filled with ups and downs. Good times and bad times. Exciting and ugly. With just enough for one to be excited about next year.
No, I am not talking about the Milwaukee Brewers.
I am talking about the Drinking for Jesus tour!
DfJ rolled into the last stop of the year, St. Gregory the Great. Mt. Olive was playing in one tent while some unknown group was in the other. Unfortunately, MO was in the tent where they served Bud. We had to walk to the other side to get real beer. I guess a little exercise won't kill you. But you think they would learn. The beer people were bored. Not busy at all. Meanwhile the guy selling the Miller bottles was busy. It didn't help that he was an idiot. Didn't understand that he should sell the beer, not stock the tub with 12 people in line.
Nothing notable about last night. Hardly anyone was in the tent to watch Mt. Olive. That has to hurt to see no one watching you play. Things will be different tonight though. Bobby Friss is in town. Someone mentions Miller is a sponsor of him so it should be interesting to see what he does by the Bud people.
I will miss seeing some of the interesting shirts that have been seen. I saw a kick ass Iron Maiden shirt. It was actually a soccer jersey. Said Maiden on the collar as well as the front. Nice patch of Eddie too. It was very subdued which made it cool.
I also saw a "Trust me, I'm a blond" shirt. I didn't know the Blonde was in town! But a quick second look at the rack told me it definitely wasn't her. Is she franchising out?
There were too many kids running around the ground last night. I felt sorry for them. Can't drink anything but soda. I shudder back at those days. I mean, what would camping be like if there wasn't any Jack and Coke flowing during the rain?
Time to see Bobby. Maybe I will have a Vegas recap then. If you want the poker side of the recap, go to Beer City Poker.
