In Dire Straits, and out of it.
I went to a Mark Knopfler concert yesterday the the Radio City Auditorium in NY city. Amazing fun!!! Check out my pics at Yahoo photos. And the clips I could manage to capture on my camera (more on my camera later) - Clip 1, Clip 2, Clip 3. (Please dont sue me...). For the ones interested in more details ones check out dalal's blog entry. Its was some "dream come true" moment for him. The last time he had a "dream come true" moment, we had 14 cars backing out and just 6 cars racing on the Indianapolis speedway. So I was really really wary going in there.
The ambience was good, the music was great, though the place seemed too formal for a rock concert. He played famous numbers like Romeo and Juliet, Sultans of Swing, So Far Away, Telegraph Road, Money for Nothing with the exception of Tunnel of Love. Had a nice dinner at Bubba-Gump Shrimp at Times Square on the way back. It's a nice place set in Forrest Gump style with all of Forrest's and Bubba's and Lieutenant Dan's and Jenny's and Mom's favorite drinks and dishes. A real nice marketing strategy. And it works too...
Tennis update: Federer killed Gonzalez in 3......
Prediction: Semis, Federer kills Hewitt. Finals, Federer kills Roddick playing at 75% of his usual self. 3rd Wimbledon in a row. Then US open.... then French within the next 3 years......then 15 Grand Slams in all, within the next 6/7 years. The only one who can stop Roger is Roger himself.
