Throwback Thursday // 24th of October

Standard

Each Thursday we’re taking Instagram to the streets. And to this blog. Remembering the good ol’ days – cause if any good therapist will tell you, it’s best to live in the past.

Screen Shot 2013-10-24 at 4.52.47 PMYou haven’t lived until you’ve been to a Girl Talk concert. And you definitely haven’t lived, or almost died after 4 day long birthday bender followed up by a Monday night Girl Talk concert. Try not to wear too many clothes when you go. You will either sweat through them all or end up taking them off and throwing them around your head or someone may just rip them off of you. That all may or may not have happened at this particular show. But what did happen was glory. Toilet paper, confetti, balloons, beach balls. Ca’mon. Here we are preparing for the show. Jello shots and goofy glasses and all. One of these guys made it out the whole night even after the show. One did not. Guess which one?

It seems fitting to throw in a NASCAR picture to the mix. We’ve only been to short track racing, which as a spectator might be the best way to go. Newton Motorspeedway in Iowa isn’t on the Sprint Cup schedule, yet. But one day you will see a Spring Cup race in Newton. Last year at Bristol was great. Especially when for the end of days every single pre-Bristol commercial for the Bristol Race will show Tony Stewart taking off his helmet and throwing it at Matt Kenseth’s car. Dominant. Not only were we there. But we were there. Like right there. Standing on the fence watching it all unfold. I will tell my kids this story over and over and over again until they can’t stand to hear it anymore. And then I will tell it to them again. Just for good measure. They may hate me. But hey, isn’t that what all high school kids are suppose to do at one point or another? If you ever get a chance to catch a NASCAR race at Bristol, or a Football game for that matter. Go. 160,000 people at the world’s largest amplitheater. Loud noises. Cold beer. Cars doing a buck 40 in circles for three hours at night. America.

After the toss.
