Default Tampa

Weather looks very nice in that part of the land coming up, and with Brisnet starting free Ultimate PP's starting the 23rd, it just appears that the stars are aligning for a voyage extraordinaire.

I was my normal selfless self today and did some bird dogging for you guys at the Hard Rock.

It's about a 2.5 on a scale of 10. Not remotely impressed.

I'm printing Thursday Tampa pp's right now. Hoping Kev posts his Balmoral picks in the morning so I can arrive a few thousand ahead.

Dude, I stared a TV for 3 minutes the other day trying to figure out what the hell they were doing. Still have no idea.

I'm going to be at TBD on Saturday with my brother-in-law, wouldn't mind meeting anyone who cares to share tips with a baaaad handicapper. And I don't mean baaaad as in the street usage.

Great, we will be in the box seats, in the grandstand, just past the finish line.

Wow, what a blur this past 4 days has been. I had the pleasure of meeting many fellow dt'ers and hopefully created friendships that will last a very long time.
So while I sit in Tampa international with about an hour to kill I'll try to give you the highlights and lowlights of a very memorable 4 days.

Tuesday- Trip starts when I fly into Orlando for business at the crack of dawn. Not expected to meet up with the gang until the next day. Eat breakfast at a rancid IHOP that will lead to many lowlights in the following days. But in the short term I have a brief laugh at stuffing up their lone toilet on the way out. I high tail it out of there before they find out and expect to undo the carnage that I did. But in the end they will get the last laugh, believe me..........

In the meantime I have tons of time to kill as it's early and I'm not expected at my destination until late afternoon, but I do start heading towards that direction. As I'm driving on I4 I see a sign for a dog track, hell why not? So I cut across 4 lanes and get off having no idea where or how far this place is. Thankfully it was only about 20 minutes away, with the only thing guiding me are these little signs that I keep spotting by the grace of God every few miles. But with his guiding hand I stumble across the Orlando Sanford dog track. I am absolutely floored, it's 11am and they just opened. I'm walking around and admiring the place like it's the Lourve.

Boarding has started, to be continued (probably tonight)..........
