I just drank a huge orange slurpee energy drink from 7-11. That was probably a mistake. Here’s the first of my Worcester videos.
What a mob scene at the show tonight! New England loves them some Idols, they surely do. I mentioned in comments, that Archie got such a big reception, he just stood there, a bit awestruck while the crowd kept cheering. And Cookie would just smile at an especially big ovation. At one point, he said he didn’t want it to end. He called the crowd awesome.
Also, Cookie threw at least 2 picks out to our section, and I thought there was going to be a riot. Fans were combing the floor trying to find them. Unfortunately, I think the clean-up crew swept them up tonight.
The other thing–I was in the second row in section one. NOBODY in the row in front of me stood up. Nobody in my row stood up. The row behind me stood up for the Davids. There were a couple of Jason fans behind me who stood, but that was it in my little corner of the arena. The rest of the place? They were going nuts.
I’ll have more later on the others, and the death of the Mavid dance. Boo hoo. But right now, I got to get some sleep!
