Whew, exhausting weekend. Long story short: Weekend company (good folk, but company is company), combined with a group father-son trip to the Pistons game yesterday. We were supposed to take the Hummer limo, but the two guys eligible to drive it backed out, leaving me with their tickets to peddle. We were able to unload 13 (out of 14) of them. I had to drive our Amish hauler van to Detroit and back . . . in some of the worse driving conditions I’ve experienced. We saw at least ten cars spun out in ditches (the people still in them), and we hit a huge traffic back up. The trip to Detroit took over 4.5 hours. It typically takes 3 hours. Absolutely brutal.
The bright side: The game was incredible (though we missed the first quarter). The Pistons were down by more than 15 to Ben Wallace and the Chicago Bulls and came back to win. A lot of fun.
Funny aside: During one of the game breaks, the jumbotron showed clips from Animal House’s “Shout” scene. I noticed that Ben Wallace looks a lot like Otis Day.
Anyway, all you get today are some pictures from the weekend. Sorry.
