There was a silly individual setting off firecrackers among the crowd during the day. Along came fourteen officers who confiscated a backpack full of bottle rockets. The crowd cheered.
As usual the show was worth the eight and a half hours that we waited, as boring as it was. Good thing I like to people watch, I guess. (Why would a woman yank a toddler around on a leash?)
Not sure I’ll make it next year, but we’ll see!
