It’s Hovi Baby! A Lazy Sunday Evening

Updated: April 9, 2008

So, after an afternoon of listening to U.G.K, I was sitting around the apartment on Sunday evening, not knowing what to do with myself. Women’s Final Four? Meh. I’ll have it on, but I can’t guarantee my undivided attention. Granted, I wasn’t bored. I despise the word ‘bored’ – can bloggers really ever say that they’re bored? In any case, a text message from my boy Rob came into my phone around 7:30 pm, “Hey, you wanna go to Jay-Z?”

Uhh….okay? Wasn’t aware that Jay-Z was in DC….so the potential for a trick was present. Well a trick it was not. The next thing I knew, I found myself at the sold-out Verizon Center in Chinatown DC with front row club level seats — witnessing Mary J. Blige and my first Jay-Z concert. Mary J. put on an absolute show. Jay-Z….he was pretty damn good. I could be picky with song selection and quantity, but I won’t. [My Top 10 Jay-Z Tracks]

Thanks to Rob for looking out and thanks to his boy John for giving up the tickets.

    thanks for the link.

    You are the second person who told me they attended that concert on a last minute whim.

    How did work feel the next day? I guess since you are not an old man like me, you don’t have to worry about staying up late and being drained the next day.

    How boring is my life now? Highlight of Kyle’s week: Jay-Z/MJB concert. Highlight of Adam’s week: Trip to the dentist that leaves his mouth numb for 6 hours!
