American Idol in Boston



WOW...
AMERICAN IDOL IN BOSTON

Well we are here with Tara at Gillette Stadium in foxboro Mass. She is trying out for American Idol. Yipeee....

We arrived last night and parked overnight in the walmart parking lot..checked out the stadium that evening and found out that there were people in line already. We decided that we would get some sleep and wake up around 3:30 get dressed and then decide what to do. Around 4:30 we dropped Tara off so she could get in line. Jeff drove Homey and I drove Taras car to the parking lot.
We all had walkie talkies so I was able to find Tara in the Long Long line...she had a pretty good position. We were in one of the first rows you see in the picture below. We waited until around 730 and they started letting the crowd go in... Picture this...lots and lots of people, the first few rows spent the night outside in the rain and elements, they left behind wet trash, sleeping bags,pillows, airmattress, wet clothing,chairs, coolers...a wet mess..

We sidestepped all that on our way inside...Finally made it in around 830 or so..Tara got a pink wrist band, I got a green one. We were given seat assignments and went to our seats for a meeting explaining what will be happening tomorrow. We were told that our section will be one of the first to be auditioned tomorrow.

Tara and I then head back to the Homey to rest...Jeff was already there. We all rested until around 11 the headed back to see what was happening.
There was still a long line but it moved along quickly and most people were in by 12.

Jeffy wasn't able to get in because Tara was only allowed one guest...so he asked a gal who was on her own if he could go as her guest...nice gal 28 years old....she was on the internet and realized that registration was today and came on over...luckily she was from foxboro so she didn't have far to travel. So we all went in hung out..watched people do Kareoke...

went back to homey around 4 had dinner and here we are hanging out. people are mulling about in the parking lot..some will sleep in their cars I see a couple of girls hanging out on a blanket, I hope it doesn't rain... There we quite a few people with blankets and air mattress who would be staying overnight in the stadium...

We will be nice and cozy here in Homey, getting a good nights sleep, staying dry and walking up early to get into our seats...So wish Tara luck...
Stay tuned...
we are having a blast...
