    Default An Army Of One !

    So I'm laying in bed Friday morning, in the time between hitting the snooze for the third time , ya'know, when you're awake but not ready to get out of bed yet . Anyway I was laying there thinking of what a joke the hall of fame has become, with inducting Percy Sledge and such before VH , and it really pissed me off !
    There the plan was hatched to go to the hardware store , get some stuff to make some signs , and plan a day trek 125 miles north to the "Mistake By The Lake" and their RRHOF! I was organizing a one man protest !

    Saturday morning came , and Tabby and I grabbed the signs I had made the night before , and booked out of town about 8 am. Thinking I would get up there about the time the HOF opened, when foot traffic was light , and I could find a place to park ! I was just gonna hang around until someone shooed me off !
    We arrived at 9:45 , just in time to find out there was a organized walk for breast cancer, which multiplied my estimate of 100 people hanging around , to about 10,000 people wearing pink with numbers pinned to themselves ! And no parking !
    After about 10 minutes of contemplation , (you see I'm a big man that hates being in a crowd ,so I almost turned around and drove home) I decided that this band means too much to me , and I'm really pissed about them being overlooked once again, so I put my own personal embarrassment aside and decided "fuck it", they've given me so much over the years , I owe them my support ! Paid $15 to park a mile away ,and set off to make my stand !

    Got a few positive comments from passers-by , and suprizingly no hassles from the numerous police on hand for crowd control , so I picked my spot , hung out for about an hour or so , until the Lake Erie wind ripped my signs apart, and then headed 125 miles south , to go home ! What a morning !

    Anyway , never let it be said that I'm not a diehard !

    Here's some pics for your amusement ! Peace !

    I fully expected to get hassled as soon as I got there , but with all the people around , I guess I didn't stand out too much. Well, aside from being 300 lbs. and holding 2 big signs ! LOL
