Go Patriots (v. Villanova today at 2)! Great show last night in the heart of
Mason Nation (the Patriot Center). So many highlights but tops for me was the full Terrapin suite. Saw every DC-area 'Head I know at the show. How'd you dig it, Chuckles?

Good luck in the NCAA! I almost went to GMU for the History PhD program - I saw Niel Young at the Pat Center. Glad to see the boys are playing cool shows, can't wait for April 1!

My Hokies got denied once again so we'll be NIT'ing it :oops:

Russo's playing on Terrapin was unbelievable and the Deal 1st set closer was smokin. I had great seats but couldn't fully see the headstock from my angle, was that an Ibanez Hollowbody John was playing for the first few songs?

Had a blast! More importantly, it was the first time Mrs. Chuckles had seen them and she had a blast, too. 8)

Russo just kills on that Terrapin Flyer, doesn't he?

TMD: that was indeed a hollowbody Ibby he played the first three tunes... don't know if it is from the Bobby collection or not, but am hoping to find out...
Seems like I've been here before...

What a victory by the Patriots yesterday! :cool: But I'm afraid Sunday's match with Ohio State will be our cold shower. :cry:

Must add, though I was a wreck at work yesterday, I'm still on a high today from Thursday's show. I've been to so many fine shows in my day and I enjoyed Thursday's right up there with the best of 'em.

Just the thought of George Mason makes me throw up in my mouth.
