Rather than a half dozen posts about a couple dozen events, I thought I would do some of it in pictures.

As usual, things are going extremely fast – Friday was a trip to Beaumont for the Drillers press conference. While I don’t have the photos back from the Driller’s photographer yet, I did manage to take some shots of my own while there Friday.

Where else but Beaumont, Texas can you find not only the new line of tractors on display in the center of the local mall, but the local TV station as well?

Another benefit of the mall trip was getting a puka shell necklace. Once all decked out in my coolness, I had to take a trip to where all the cool kids hang out – Abercrombie & Fitch for a photo op.

Now that I was oozing coolness, it was time to take in a Beaumont Wildcatters hockey game. This is the same arena where the Beaumont Drillers indoor football team will be playing. Fun stuff.

The day started before sunup and didn’t end until the wee hours of Saturday. It was jam-packed with fun. Oh yeah, there are a few other photos from the day on my flickr page.
