    Son was first responder at nasty crash on 395 today and is too shook up to meet me. My friends are all booked - my wife is too tired ... but I am going anyway.

    PM me if you want to go. Seats were not cheap.

    Sorry for late notice. @Mikie gets first dibs.

    Well thanks for the generous offer but it's just too short of notice for us. I hope you find someone who can use them.

    Dude! It was awesome! Thanks to the @StrandLeper and wife, I had the best Saturday night in quite a awhile.
    I saw this post at 6:48pm and by 8:20 I was sitting in a primo seat waiting for the show.
    Another great example of the way this community brings people together in more ways than just mtbing.
    Thanks to @Mikie for making it all happen.
    U2 rocked!

    Shucks...

    Just after I laid out the offer, the wife rallied. (Bummer, I was looking forward to driving the fast car a bajillion miles an hour after the show on the way home).

    Wife has one request: "Let's drive the van so I can sleep there and back."

    Then I tell her that a buddy or two might meet us, and she says "That's cool, but if you pay more attention to them than me, I will cut you!"

    Thus, i walked a bit of a tightrope during the show and didn't really get to "hang out with Ross" but it was cool meeting him nonetheless.

    Who says that impulsiveness is a bad thing? Not me!

    Any married man gets this, props on the generosity. I was wishing I didn't have a wife on bedrest and a 1.5yr old when I saw the post yesterday!
