The show is just an added bonus.

I traveled to NYC with my dear friend JTH, we tore that city apart on Saturday. We did the sightseeing thing, and then hit every Irish pub in Manhattan. Sunday a few phone calls were made and my boy Storman Norman told me EXACTLY where to go for a few before concert beverages. FUCK those $10 beers, we sat in a local pub 3 blocks from the Garden and had PBR'S 2 for $5. Then a few more phone calls are made. And within the next hour some of the COOLEST people I know all start showing up. I really don't need to give names, you all know who you are. We hugged, we embraced, we laughed, some of us even shed a tear for different reasons. We ordered pizza's, we took photos, we asked about loved ones, we caught up on life. We have been doing this for a long time, some longer then others, but it never gets old. It just keeps getting BETTER!

The show is just a bonus.
Its the lifetime friendships I have made over the years, that makes it worth the trip.
And each and every one of you who were with myself Storman Norman and James yesterday, all know one thing.

SPEEDY GETS TO THROW THE PARTY IN CHICAGO, FOR WRIGLEY!!!!!!
And SPEEDY has been known to throw a pretty damned good party.

    even if I look and act really crazy.
