This past weekend was pretty busy. On Friday I took the kids to their mom's house which took 3 hours because of all the construction. That sucked, but when I got home, after a nap, I went to TCs to see Deep Space. The new TCs sound guy needs to take a sound guy lesson or 2, but they played really well. By the 2nd set, once the sound issues were resolved, things were fantastic. "China">"Rider">"Playin' in the Band" was great. The "Playin'" jam was really weird and spacey. The first set was cool too w/ "Crippled Creek," "Blue Sky" & "Tons of Steel," plus a cool version of a song Connie wrote. I had to leave a little early though because I had to get up and drive back to get the kids in the morning before their games. My daughter's game was interesting in that they got their asses kicked and the other coach did nothing to try to hold down the score. It was obvious they were getting better by the end though & they seemed to have fun none-the-less. My son's game had an opposite score line. I did everything I could to try to stop them from running up the score, but they won 11 or 12-3. My son got a hat-trick (as did one 1 or 2 other kids). After taking them back to their mom's after the game, I took a nap and then went out to see Whitey Morgan in Whitmore Lake. I was low on funds this weekend, so I brought the old flask into the bar & kept refilling my cup all night. I was drinking some random scotch that was left at my house after the Burns' Night Party. Good stuff & it certainly did the trick. Their 3 sets were great & they were done by 1:00ish so we got home relatively early. There's nothing like good old outlaw country. Yesterday, I watched the Arsenal game (they won 3-1 and have now qualified for the Champions League next year!!!) & then went to look at some furniture that will replace the stuff my ex is taking. Afterwards, I met a friend from my team to watch a few games during our bye weekend. We sat on the sideline and drank beer while we heckled and scouted the other teams. That was a good time too. Overall, a hectic weekend, but it was fun w/ good music & good soccer. I know this is kind of rushed and lacks the detail you've all come to expect, but I'm about to go find Jack in the Pulpits to plant in my back yard so I'm kind of in a hurry.
