Live blogging from Fergs? Not as easy as it sounds

12:25: It was a good plan. Set up the laptop at Ferg's, do some blog updates, see if I could score a ticket. If not, keep live blogging from the bar with updates and comment.

It was a bad plan. My computer was configured wrong, and I couldn't get a wireless signal. By the time I found a radio station tech guy cool enough to set me up (thanks Kimo), I couldn't find a power outlet or a seat. Well, I did find a seat, but it was outside of eye-range of a TV. Kind of defeats the purpose.

So I bagged it. I'm back at Casa Snider. My pal Scottie is going to work the area around the Trop in a bit to see if he can score us a couple tix. If so, I'm dashing out of NE St. Pete and down to the stadium. If not, I'll hang here, Scottie'll come over, we'll pop some brews, and I'll blog from the comforts of home.

Catch up with you a bit.
