Yes, that's right, Kenny Chesney. Kirsten and I along with friends Aaron and Donna went and caught the Kenny Chesney concert this past Thursday evening and morning. Kenny is the only country music I listen to and he puts on one hell of a show. We saw him last year and for sure didn't dissapoint this year. He came on at 9pm and played until 12:15am Friday morning. He was in rare form playing around 15 covers along with his assortment of hits. By the end of the night, he had everyone from his crew on stage singing. He got so drunk that by the time he sang his song(the song that made him popular), She thinks my tractor is sexy, he forgot some of the words. Everyone had a great time. He played covers with Uncle Cracker and Miranda Lambert. Too bad we all had to work in the morning. We got in around 1:30 and had to be up by 6:15. I was tired until around noon, but then perked up after lunch. If you get a chance, check out Kenny Chesney live in concert!
TOUR OF MISSOURI IS HERE!!!!
The Tour of Missouri has been going on all week and has not dissapointed. My 2nd favourite bike racer in the world, Mark Cavendish has been whooping up on everyone. (Tom Boonen is #1)He just won his third stage today. The Manxta is in the house!! American Christian Vande Velde is in the lead and should win the race barring any wrecks in downton STL on Sunday.
Just like last year, a ton of people went out to Schluersberg Hill in rural St. Charles County to catch the KOM. The climb was packed again. Todd, Cousin Scott and myself made it out there around 11:30 and staked out a prime spot. We qued up some brats, sausages, Nathan's hotdogs and put down some cold beverages. Talked with tons of folks and had a great time. As you can tell, Todd was at it again running with the peloton. How can you miss his Spongebob outfit and his German pigtails!
We hope to catch the final stage in downtown STL on Sunday if Hurricane Ike stays away.
The leg is getting better and the elbow seems to be in working order now.
Tour of Ste. Gen is next weekend. I am not riding in it, but hope to get back on the bike this week.
Luckily Mom came up and took Reese to her first soccer game. She seems to be really fast, so perhaps this will be something she will excel at.
