Hotels, hotels everywhere…

…and not a single room to be had in the entire city of Detroit. I don’t get it. Is the Blue Jays/Tigers game that big of a draw? Maybe. I dunno. But we could not find a single place to stay tonight after we take Bob and Kay to the airport. Of course, there *is* a room available at the MGM Grand…for $299. Um, no thanks. Stein told me yesterday that Notre Dame is playing at UMich, so that might have something to do with it as well. I’ll bet there hasn’t been a room in Ann Arbor since the football schedule came out last year. Every Catholic in Indiana will be there.

So we settled for the Airport Best Western — a 16-mile drive from downtown. It’s OK. We’re going to have some fun. Us, and the 56,437,228 other people who will likely descend upon Greektown tonight.

My new Flip video is go-go-gadget amazing. I’m having fun with it. Drop-of-the-hat movies will be boss with the grandsons.

You won’t be surprised to learn that I’m also after this little gem:

Oh yeah.

Have a fun weekend, fiends. I’m off to get packed and ready to go.

Fink out.

I can’t wait to hear the remasters.

What kind of video does your ‘flipvideo’ take? When can we expect the first Fink cinema extravaganza?
