My brothers in Fireworks got added to the New Found Glory/Set Your Goals/Bayside tour. They got the call while in Nashville with We Are the Union and hauled ass through the night to Philly. The dudes got to myself around noon. We hung out. They showered and went to Gianna's and then we headed to the venue for load in. The guys hooked me up with an all access pass and I had a really good time. The dude from The AKAs was doing tattoos backstage. Fireworks killed it and I know they will the rest of the tour. If you're going to see the show, be sure to support the guys. This is the first tour they've been on that's this size but won't be the last! Pictures below of NFG on stage and the pass I got.
Today ruled for a few reasons. One, the flyers won. Two, I got some work done on my 25 page paper for my senior seminar. Three, I scored free tickets to TNA Lockdown. For those of you who don't know what TNA is (and I didn't until this week), it's another pro-wrestling organization like WWE. A lot of wrestlers that aren't under contract with WWE anymore ended up here and there was some serious talent on the card. The point of lock down was that every match is in a cage. The highlight of the night was watching Mick Foley win the championship. When I was maybe 11, my dad took me to see WWF In Your House Mind Games. The headliner was Shawn Michaels vs Foley (as Mankind). I never thought I'd get to see him wrestle again and I was really excited he won. I don't see him doing too many more matches. Below is a picture from the seats Jack and I snuck into. It was an 8 man cage match and two dudes were fighting on the top when I took the photo.
