But then it got good. I finally arrived at my hotel at about midnight. I got checked in and was in my room looking for an outlet to charge my phone and computer. I started by moving the end tables to see if there was an outlet on the wall behind them. Unfortunately, I found no outlet. Even more unfortunate was what I found under the endtable as I slid it away:
Stay classy, Holiday Inn Airport West.
Who's playing? None other than JOURNEY, HEART, AND CHEAP TRICK. Where are they staying? In my hotel. I'll be honest, folks. If an "opportunity" in the form of a backstage pass presents itself at some point today, I may have to pass on the marathon tomorrow.
Okay, gotta go, people. I need to brush up on my "Behind the Music" episodes for my 3 new favorite bands.
ps: Weather report for tomorrow: There's a flood warning for the Missouri River at St. Charles (pretty much exactly where I'll be running), and it's looking like an 80% chance of heavy rain tomorrow. Anyone have an inside contact with my 3 favorite bands? Marcy?!
