My Morning Jacket rocks Station Square!


If I had to pick a "pic-a-day" photo, this would be it! Jim James and the crazy donkey statue, wearing a poncho (though some think it's a rabbit! - you be the judge:)

It was my first MMJ concert and even though I only know their album Z, their performance really blew me away. They truly are as my friend BNac would describe: a rock band crossed with a jam band who really knows how to ROCK OUT. This creates one heck of an entertaining show that I'm sure is different every time you see it. Here they are jamming at the end of their song Off the Record:

More of the best photos from the night:

yes I believe that's a Polamalu jersey! He waved a Terrible Towel before sitting down to play the final songs of the set.

And here's "Gideon" - possibly my favorite song from MMJ!

Restriped markings on the "Intersection of Death"

New paint on the Roup side of the Negley/Center/Baum/Roup Death Triangle intersection....

Disc brakes: a love-hate relationship


Love their stopping power!
Hate because I'm mystified when I try to adjust, let alone fix them.

Last Softball Game Followed by Banjo Night

Photo of me before entering the Elks Lodge for Banjo Night.

This was after a softball playoff game of epic proportions.
We, the 7th seeded team (of 7 teams) was playing against the 2nd seeded team.

We managed to be in the lead for most of the game and hold the game to 2 extra innings before losing 16 - 15 (or something ridiculous like that).

...Us...the team that USUALLY gets 10 run ruled. We finally clicked at the end of the season.

It was a lot of fun. :)
