Like Dave from Blogograhy was saying, sometimes there are so many CoVid diversions that you don’t have time for them all.
That happened to me on Saturday when the second Steven Page Zoom concert conflicted with the virtual running of the Kentucky Derby. NBC Sports set up a fake derby between all the Triple Crown winners. I had to see my boy Secretariat win the virtual race, given he still holds the record in all three races of the Triple Crown.
I wore the Celebrity Hat out to the backyard to pick some weedy fuzzy scrub mint for my mint julep. It had three ounces of bourbon, which tasted very nice over some ice I made and crushed, and only gave me a little headache.
Then I went back in and watched the concert. I am sure no one on Zoom noticed me slyly watching the race on my phone for about two minutes. (Spoiler - Secretariat won.)
Toward the end of the concert Steven Page asked the 800 people on the Zoom to unmute and sing along with The Chorus Girl. (Because as he will tell you in his Ted Talk, that’s the most important part.) It was hilariously bad. Picture a Demon Chorus singing ‘la la la laaah la.’ So, still with the delightful screw-ups, only this time it involved the audience screwing up. Fun for everyone!
