On Saturday night, I went to a concert.
I saw Styx for the 17th time.
And it was great. Awesome. Nothing less than I expected, even after seeing them that many times.
I became a Styx fan in 1997...I heard "Come Sail Away" as I was driving in my car and that was the end for me.
Shortly after becoming an obsessed fan, I went to my first Styx concert at a local county fair. As they were announcing the band members, they got to the drummer, Todd Sucherman, and I about crapped my pants.
I knew Todd. Well, I didn't know Todd. I knew Todd's brother, Paul. I played in many-a-band with Paul. For many years. How did I not know his brother was the drummer for Styx?!?!
Anyway, I never used the relationship to my advantage. I did see Paul at a few local concerts and was able to meet Todd, which was uber awesome! Also (thanks to my friend who won a contest on the radio) I was able to meet the rest of the guys a few years back.
I've seen them more in the front row than not, which is quite an awesome experience.
Yes, I know most of the guys touring with Styx are as old as my father--I couldn't care. I'm a big fan and will be forever.
And thank goodness I have some awesome friends that love them just as much as I do :)
Anyway, I know I owe you all a belly pic. I will get you a good one, I promise--I seriously haven't had an opportunity to get one.
But I have a teaser for you--this was post concert, so forgive the funky hair, weird pose and the fact it was taken with my phone. And I know it's not a good indication of the belly yet--but I had to share the shirt.
I can officially say I've worn this shirt every time I've been pregnant.
Though I can't guarantee the child inside of me will be a Styx fan, at least I can hope :) Thanks to Tomas for quasi "approving" the use of this shirt for me to wear.
