    The MONSTER TRUCKS are here until SUNDAY....SUNDAY....SUNDAY!!!! [​IMG]

    I guess they are up at Oakland Coliseum. It was on the news last night....it kind of pissed me off because the newscasters started the piece with something like :

    "....they're big, they're LOUD...and they're tacky....they're monster trucks."

    Anyway, I haven't been to a monster truck show in YEARS, but I was wondering if there's anyone in the Bay Area who's considering going to this event?

    It probably runs from Thursday (1/3) through Saturday (1/5) but I'm not 100% sure.

    There's a monster truck show in Colorado Springs this weekend. My 2-year-old son is totally psyched that we're gonna go see them tomorrow. Gonna go early in the hopes that we can actually get up close and personal with some of the trucks. He loves to watch them on TNN's Monster Jam, but I don't think he has a clue as to how big and loud they are in person! [​IMG]

    when I lived in the springs a few years ago (89-95) I went early and took a bunch of pictures and got to get up under them and check it out

    Just a tip if you're bringing kids. Take some sort of hearing protection for them. They usually have more fun if their ears arn't ringing, BTDT.

    That's for sure! My shooting muffs adjust down small enough for my son to wear and then I just use the foam plugs for me. It's amazing how loud those things are, especially in a closed space! [​IMG]

    They will be at the Pepsi center in Denver this weekend.
    My wife bought me tickets for my bithday.
    My son, a friend and me will be there on Sat. the 12th if anyone else is going. Let me know. I might even drive the K5 down. I always like to see trucks that people spend way too much money on.
