the Crew at Tom & Jerry's welcomes traffic back to SPI
GETTING READY FOR GARTH
some 20,000 fans are expected to show up for this event!
We watched the Garth Brooks concert on TV and didn't see you in the crowd?????? It looked like a once in a lifetime event for sure! Give us the scoop!
|9:05 PM - Cozy warm, safe and sound back at Kelly's with front row seats at the bar, we watch the rain swirl around Garth in his cheerful yellow shirt on the TV screen. He has a big grin on his face. Look at that silly girl wearing nothing but a T-shirt! The highlight for this non-fan is Jerry Jeff singing "Mr. Bojangles." As the cameras pan the audience, I see that most of those in attendance do not appear to recognize this classic but are smiling politely nonetheless. Everyone looks happy! The next morning I will get an urgent ask sandy e-mail, "Please settle this bet for us- was that rain or snow swirling around Garth during the broadcast?"
10:15 PM - The steady stream of traffic south on the boulevard drives the usual suspects into Kelly's. They are cold and wet and grinning ear to ear. Some guy who had a backstage pass says Garth was fuming the whole time the camera wasn't on him, and that he will never be back to SPI. Why is that? Surely he doesn't think we ordered this weather...?!! The guy shrugs. Did you go to the concert, sandy feet?
