All of this was a pleseant distraction from the serious nature of the family photo op (from left: Patrice, Gretchen, Gumma, Uncle Pfft, Gumpa, Delma and Sidetrack).
A week earlier, Side Track and Buzz Daddy celebrated their 19th anniversary. They have a ways to go to catch up to Harlin and Pat.
If you've ever seen the Movie "Ocean's 11", then you might remember one of the final scenes of the movie when all of Ocean's accomplices stand in front of the Belogio Hotel and Casino to watch the water show. Here is a short video clip taken during while in Vegas of the finale to one of those water shows. In the background you hear Aaron Copland's "Rodeo" which is played through hidden speakers near the railing. The video does not do justice to the spectacular nature of the water show, but it does give you some idea of it's magnatude and synchronization.
In other notes: The Red Sox clinch a play-off spot, and now the race is on to win the division. Hawkeyes dropped a heartbreaker to the Badgers in Madtown. Iowa's loss was insult to injury to BD, because he placed a bet at the Sports Book in vegas that Iowa would loose by more than 8 points, as it turns out, the Badgers didn't cover the spread. Alas, Lost Wages!
