He preformed a cover of Tom Petty's Free Fallin, and he interpretation of the song was amazing. Check out his version from the "Where the Light Is" DVD and you'll see what I mean.
I can't embed the video into my blog but click this link and it'll take you there so you can be amazed.
I also should add that he is a phenomenal guitarist. I knew this going into the show but all the hype around him did not leave me disappointed.
My only not-so-pleased experience was that he didn't leave Jen for me. What a jerk, right?

I must preface two of these with the following disclaimer: If you are not familiar with the Mormon culture, or more specifically the Utah County culture, you may not understand exactly what is so great about these blogs. No worries, the third is to be enjoyed by all.

So, for the past few days I have had baseball on my mind, I know I know…big shocker.
With the anticipation of the All-Star break I was starting feel pangs of sadness because the wonderful midsummer classic, shows that we are just that, mid-summer. In reality we are closer to 2/3 through summer, which means that there isn’t very much of the baseball season left.
So, as I was thinking of why baseball is so great and why this summer, the summer that I have been getting paid to watch baseball, was one of the best times in my life.
On Monday night I sat in the press box, with my sub-par chicken parmesan compliments of the suite catering staff and the LHMSE cooks, I looked over at the TV to watch the Home Run Derby, and who was up? None other than Mr. Josh Hamilton himself.
So I will write about what makes Josh Hamilton’s single-round 28 home runs as amazing and unforgettable as they were.
For a sport that has been clouded by the use of illegal substances and was forever changed, it was refreshing to witness a moment when the beauty of the human spirit could shine through the darkness that clouds the sport.
Everyone acknowledges that
For those of you who are unaware, Hamilton was the overall first draft pick out of high school and received a $4 million signing bonus, which was squandered away to feed his drug addiction.
But the young
I’m not going to get into a lot of the details because I don’t know all of them and because you can read about them, as they are all over the media right now.
What I want to acknowledge is that, who Josh Hamilton is, and what he has done is what makes sports so great. He made poor choices and he almost lost his life, but he fought through it and he has become the kind of person that I want my eight year old little brother to look up to.
Josh Hamilton has just done something amazing for baseball.

Anyway, I have a really boring life because I love my job so much that everything pales in comparison and when the team is out of town I just can't wait for their return.
So, with the team returning tomorrow I will take some pictures during the home stand and I will post them and all will be wonderful.
Also, I get to see my love John Mayer in less than three weeks!!!!
