My entire family and any friends who wanted a free ticket went the Brampton Battalion home opener on September 24th.
I got 300 free tickets courtesy Rogers TV to hand out. Total attendance was below 3000, so I was personally responsible for 10% of the tickets.
The Battalion lost the game 5-1 to the Erie Otters.
During the 1st intermission, my son participated in an ice contest. That's him in the white jacket getting ready.
Here's the vid of my son doing play-by-play on the ice. The contest.
Summer Vacation, Day 30, August 16th 2010.
It's the day after the Michigan race. Here I am. All alone in the middle of the racetrack. I need a shower and shave.
Almost everybody is gone. Our motorhome stands alone.

What's left in the morning.
Garbage and port-a-potties.

Thank you Goodyear. Good show.
Here's my son in a competition during the 1st intermission of this year's Brampton Battalion home opener. He got the loudest cheer, but that's likely because I gave out 300 tickets to the game.
He did a great job. They originally asked one of my son's friends, but he was too afraid. I told my son to step up and he jumped at the chance.
August 16th, we went to the Carfax 400 at the Michigan International Speedway.
This was another excellent race. Jimmy Johnson ran out of gas after completely dominating the race. That's the 2nd time that's happened to him at Michigan in 2 races this year. I can understand that he didn't need the points, so it was 1st or last. On the other hand, I don't understand what Mark Martin was thinking. He desperately needed the points to stay in the chase and ran out of gas as well.
The winner was Brian Vickers. That's the first time Red Bull has won a NASCAR event. I got to pick dinner, cause I predicted Vickers would win. I just had a feeling.
The media blowing up the situation are the same people that put ARod on his pedestal. The media loves knocking those they put up their off. ARod has nothing to apologize for, especially to a planet full of jealous fools.
I wonder how many potential steroid using hall of famers chose not to use steroids, didn't make it out of AAA baseball and just got laid off from their bussing restaurant tables jobs. Doubt many.
We all have big morals looking from the outside. Layoff of ARod and start looking at the real problem; Bud Selig. This guy clearly covered up the steroids problem. Did he lie to congress, senate, grand jury about ARod? I don't know. But if failing to tell the whole truth is lying, then I know he did.
Thirty years from now, Bud Selig will be in the Hall of Fame. Bingody! Bangody! Boom! Who's the fool? You are!
Here's some pics from Shea Stadium when we attended the game on Sunday, July 27th. We had some really horrible seats, but the kids liked it none-the-less. The kids were allowed to run the bases after the game and they got free icecream, baseball cards and a lunch box. Hopefully, the new stadium won't have any bad seasts like we had. It was a great game. Great catch. Homeruns. Great pitching. boxscore.
A few weeks back, the Red Wings invited me to their practice to check (and try to sell me) tickets in their high-end suites. I've stayed in them before, but the $110 suites. These are $165. You get a better meal, but for $55, I'm unsure it's worth it. I still like the $110 suites. I took a few pics, one is the BlueJackets practicing.

This is my first podcast. It's a little ruff and you can hear the wind as I walk down the street. I discuss the stupidity of the animation replays at the French Open tennis tournament.http://media.odeo.com/2/7/4/French.Open.mp3
