Things get better things get broken, probably the same for USM at UAB tomorrow night. Blues traveler will be there in 2 weeks in the distrcit. I would also like to add Dr. S that the NASCAR race is in martinsville this sunday. You can not leave out that demographic from your readers. We all need a reason to take a nap on sunday since local cable channels only carry regional teams i.e. the san antonio saints.
