Have fun Rosie!

Thank you Seismo!!!! Just back (2311) from a GREAT evening sitting in the conference room in our traditional RV 'circle of friends' tell stories (mostly lies!) We have an 0730 Sunday ride to the airport then empty the hangar of 49 RV: Very cool to see! Maybe somebody here (Dulette?) with a camera can post some pics (ours broke enroute). Time over Target is 1200 CDT Rosie

Default CBS Didn't show the fly over...

Did I miss something. I was watching the pregame and they never showed the national anthem or the flyover.

I hope someone posts some video of the flyover. CBS always finds a way to disappoint.
