My Wife's Art

Dem recently made some art for our walls...she cut out the shape and framed it. I might be bias but I think its pretty awesome. Even though it is sitting on our floor in this picture it is actually on our wall of the first items we put up.

Fun Times

I have several posts that I want to make but my time is extremely limited right when I do have some free time I like just relaxing with my new wife. However, I will start posting things real quickly just so that I'm keeping my blog up to date. I'll start with a picture of Matt, his cousin, and I at the Tigers game (alright its a little old...this was the rain out of the 2nd to last game with the Twins). It was super fun even though the game didn't happen.

Dave Matthews Band & Willie Nelson

Two weekends ago Dem and I made a one day trip to Chicago (actually Tinley Park) to see Dave Matthews Band (DMB). All summer we have looked for a chance to see them (by Michigan or Memphis). We really wanted to see them because this is the first tour after the release of Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, which is their first studio album in 4 years and first performance since the death of their saxophonist LeRoi Moore...good chance this was going to be an amazing tour. Due to schedules we missed the chance in Michigan and were pretty sure all hope was lost.

Then one day we were watching football all day and they kept playing clips from the DMB tour (we actually thought it was a weird way to advertise bands...turns out it was the perfect method). This inspired to look over the tour dates once again and then we noticed a date at Tinley Park near thing we knew we had purchased obstructed view tickets to see DMB, Tim Reynolds, and Willie Nelson. All I can say is that I was in amazement for 3 straight one point the awesomeness level was so high I could only stare dumbfounded at the stage. From the first note to the last it was just impressive.

Fortunately someone just in front of us took some video and posted it on YouTube so we can share just how horrible our partially obstructed seats were...and by horrible I mean so perfect that if a security guard turned his back for a second I would have been on stage singing with Dave.

Willie Nelson opened but did come out to play Gravedigger with DMB, which was awesome.

We were so close that we could actually see the hole in Willie Nelson's guitar.

Willie Nelson's guitar, Trigger.

Oh what the heck, why not one more video :)

Big Ten Network Commercial

Dem and I just think that this is really well done and you have to love Joe Pa at the end of the commercial.
