It Should Be An Interesting Night

It’s important that all of us, at some point in our lives, take a look back to recognize and celebrate our ancestry.  We all have to retreat to the past and visit our heritage in an effort to really embrace what’s important to us.  For some, it’s a trip to the Holy Land.  Others research their ancestry and trace their family name back over dozens of generations.  As for me, I will be reconnecting with my roots this Friday night…at the monster truck rally.

Some may call it middle America, others might say rural, but let’s not beat around the bush here.  I know I’ve got a little white trash in me, and it’s about time I embrace it.  And what better way, than by watching over-sized cars crush regular sized cars.

Look, I’m not a gearhead here.  If my car stops running and the gas gauge is not on “E,” I’m about as baffled as Scott Baio on a red carpet.  But all that aside, I just don’t see how people can not want to see a monster truck extravaganza.  Perhaps it really is the white trash in me talking, but who wouldn’t wanna see an ear pounding truck with “Grave Digger” written on the side destroying decrepit four wheeled machines that look eerily like my first car?  Or better yet, imagine seeing a 50 foot tall metallic dragon devouring a station wagon.  Tell me that doesn’t sound awesome.  It’s gonna be like a Grim Reaper video, only with better music.  Wait.  It is gonna be like a Grim Reaper video.  Well, that should be cool too.

So, yeah, it’s gonna be pretty awesome.  Between the deafening sound of the trucks, the dust in my throat, and the ever-entertaining “mullet-spotting,” I’m sure I’ll be in for a treat.  So if you’re in Milwaukee on Friday and trying to find your lineage, c’mon down to the show.  Even if you’re broke, I’m sure you can find a place.  I hear people only use the seats’ edges at these things anyway.
