Would come out of the closet - if I could find a skirt to match my blouse.

Re: Monster Jam Minneapolis

I've been to a few. I really enjoyed it in a big facility, in a small one, like a hockey arena, it really sucks. It's like trying to ride a bike inside a 2 car garage.

Re: Monster Jam Minneapolis

Went to one last summer inside a small arena with my nephews, the trucks are much louder in person than on TV. Bought some ear plugs after the first 5 minutes.

Re: Monster Jam Minneapolis

no NASCAR tracks anywhere close to me. We do have a NHRA track just down the road that has the Lucas Oil Nationals every year. Thats always fun, well at least what you can remember of it haha.

Re: Monster Jam Minneapolis

I went years ago at the Pontiac Silverdome (huge venue.) By the middle of it, I thought I was going to die from the exhaust fumes and dust. It was still a blast.

Re: Monster Jam Minneapolis

Nice editing.. Glad you stuck to the important parts. At first I thought I was going to watch a 3 minute cell phone clip of 1 truck

Holy s#it, the Silverdome, man that's a trip........my first real concert when I was 11 years old in 1978 was KISS and Cheap Trick ......man that place was full of fumes but it wasn't from exhaust!

We used to go to the Lions games back in the day and by the third quarter, there would be a haze over the field from cigarette smoke (I know, not the "fumes" you were talking about. )

As a fellow Michigander I can relate, that place was pretty cool and LOUD. A different era for sure! Can't believe it sold for $583,000 a few years back.

I know. I wish I could have gotten in on the bidding. Would have been the ultimate bachelor pad.
