Jimmy Buffett's 2008 Return to Detroit

Jimmy Buffett made his long awaited return to Detroit on June 10, 2008. We have a better chance of determining Jimmy Hoffa's fate than we do of knowing why Jimmy has been reduced to a mid-week, one night stand every couple of years from a guy that used to camp out at Pine Knob for legendary, three day, holiday weekend stands. I guess we take what we can get.
Great to see Jimmy giving the 2008 Stanley Cup Champion Detroit Red Wings some props!

A tourist in Margaritaville

Last night I experienced my very first Jimmy Buffett concert, and I may be one of the few revelers who's not nursing a hangover this morning. (The News tends to frown upon drinking while on the job -- otherwise I'd be right there with everyone else.)

During the span of several hours in the parking lot before the show, I:

* Saw thousands of people partying like it was a Saturday, not a Tuesday;

* Saw more inflatable things -- trees, innertubes, monkeys, sharks -- than I've ever seen in my life, outside of a carnival midway;

* Had at least a dozen people offer me Jello shots;

* Was told by at least two people that I need to loosen up and start partying;

* Witnessed one guy driving a motorized cooler;

* Saw one marriage proposal.

Eat your heart out, Kenny Chesney!
