Buying time, I stopped into the Budweiser Racing Track Bar & Grill in the Las Vegas Airport, mainly because I have not eaten in seven hours. I decided to try the Sun Dog Amber Wheat. This beer was surprisingly tasty with a nice compliment of hops. Slowly, Anheuser-Busch is starting to impress me with their craft beers. They still do not reach the level of micro-breweries, but a step in the right direction for AB.

A new band that I'm digging is The Takeover UK. Don't let their name fool you, as they are from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I've checked out the album and like what I hear. The song embedded is "Ah La La", which is very catchy (also it is the only official video I could find on YouTube). I may plan a trip to see them at their CD release party in Pittsburgh on Friday, April 17. I hope you enjoy this band as much as I do. Please let me know what you think.

The agreement between AC Milan, the Los Angeles gaLAxy, and David Beckham allows Beckham to stay at Milan until the end of the season and return during the summer window in mid-July to the gaLAxy. The agreement includes buyout money from Mr. Posh himself, which speaks loudly as to how much he wanted out of LA. But this was not the most unnerving aspect of the deal. The gaLAxy scored a summer friendly with AC Milan on July 19 as part of the deal. The previously scheduled SATURDAY match with the Red Bulls was moved to THURSDAY. Therefore, the league moved a date for Becks in New York. While ESPN will be clamoring to adjust the schedule and pick up this Thursday night game, the fans who wanted to attend this game lose out by putting it on a week night...in the biggest market in the league. The league will forgo a sold out Giants Stadium for a cacophonous shell of a stadium. The league and the fans lose on this deal.
