What’s up everyone, I hope you are all well. Yes, you guessed it – last one up on the tour bus. Everyone seems to go to bed so early on this tour. I’m usually alone by 1am. Andrew, Warren, Garfield and Jonathan stayed up the longest I’ve seen on this tour… I was happy to discuss whatever with them. That discussion was about Catering on the tour, Michael Buble’s band, and possibly going to Asia and Africa… Amongst other minor topics.
Tonight we played Columbus, Ohio and now we are on our way to Connecticut… next door to New York, so Jamal, Dwight and Jonathan are leaving the bus when we get to White Plains, NY… That’s because we have a day off tomorrow and they want to spend it with their families. Am I jealous? Not as jealous as I’d be if I wasn’t flying home for one day on Monday (the next day off).
What’s nice about going to the Mohegan Sun for the next 4 days is being stationery. I like moving, but I love staying still :-).
I’m hoping we get to set up and finish the ping pong tournament. Where is everything?
Well we started out with 4 groups of 4 each. (Group A, B, C, D) so that’s 16 of us competing. Only 2 players can emerge from each group based on a point system. I don’t have the list in front of me, but I believe it goes like this:
Group A = David* (crew), Michael (Buble)
*David has beaten Michael the most.
Group B = David Heard (crew), Garfield (N7)
Group C = Roger (N7), Barrie (crew)
Group D = Nick (band), Shawn (crew)
From here we move to the quarterfinals which is sudden death. We’ll play the best out of 3. The only thing I know is that I play Garfield next. N7 against N7, which is totally normal and an everyday of life occurrence :-)
Wish Garfield luck, he’s gonna need it :-)… We’ll try to video some of it if Buck doesn’t mind you all seeing him lose. I say all this knowing I played him about 5 times today and lost every time. He was on fire! But I’ll have my fire hose with plenty of water when it’s time for the real battle.
We’ll keep you posted….
Ok, that’s all for now, we’ll talk soon.
Roger, over and out
