I got a feeling.....

....that its going to rain all weekend. But that's a good thing, we could use it.

Terrell escaped with a win last night in Seagoville to run their record to 3-0. It wasn't the Dragons that gave the Tigers a close call. Cliff has his story of the game up, check out the Terrell Tribune for it, and Obstructed View has photos from the game.

I love the Black Eyed Peas. I was surfing the web last night and came across their performance on Oprah's 24th Season Kickoff show. They sang I Got A Feeling, changing the words just a bit for Oprah's show, but the highlight of the clip is the flash mob. I still am not sure what a flash mob is, but its cool. You have to watch this. Of course the BEPs are awesome as usual.

Have a GREAT Saturday!

You got a feeling and we got the rain which I understand was blown all the way to Florida from Texas...and it's supposed to keep raining for several days.

Thanks a lot! ;-)

Gosh, Jim, what a performance and what a crowd!

Here's some info I found when I Googled flash mob:

Black Eyed Peas performed a Flash Mob Dance which left the excited crowd breathless at its splendor. The madness and enthusiasm of the dance caught up with the audience in a few minutes time. The crowd was of about twenty thousand people. The performance oozed glamor, elegance, jest and was very classy as reported. The initiative to spread the enthusiasm and make the dance steps popular was started by a woman. Gradually it caught on with the entire crowd which made Oprah comment on stage “That was the coolest thing ever!!!”

She too took to dancing with the members of the Black Eyed Peas. The group danced to the tunes and changed words of their song “Got a Feeling”. Their performance could be placed on the same pedestal with any other professional dance group in the world. They made the songs apt for the show by singing “Today’s gonna be a good day” in place of “Tonight’s gonna be a good night”.

The massive choreographed dance left everyone wanting for more. The dance was closely followed by the first row people and then moved north down Michigan Avenue. The flash-mob style dance was designed so that the dancers meet at a pre-planned location and break into their routine. This surprised the unsuspecting crowd.


A flash mob (or flashmob)[1] is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual action for a brief time, then quickly disperse. The term flash mob is generally applied only to gatherings organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails. The term is generally not applied to events organized by public relations firms or as publicity stunts.

There's more there, Jim, if you want to take a look.

I wish I'd been in Chicago for this! Good on the BEP's! Good on Oprah! Good on Jim!
