We had it all planned out. We had the markers, the tape...and we even found paper napkin rings when eating dinner, that would make perfect wrist bands! But when we got inside, we realized that the wrist bands to get into the Pitt were the only color we DID NOT HAVE, highlighter yellow! We were bummed. Then, Patty noticed that one of the two guys sitting on the floor near by, two rabbis from the looks of them, had a yellow highlighter in his pocket! After trying to chat with them, i asked to borrow it, and proceeded to color the paper wrist bands then tape them together...we were ready!
We saw the guy checking wrist bands and it seemed east to get by him, especially now that the show had begun. We headed over...but did not see the other guy who was actually pulling on the wrist bands to make sure they were LIGIT! He tugged on mine, it held (I used masking tape) then he tugged on Patty's...it broke! she had used scotch tape...so I turned around figuring we would not make it into the pitt...but luckily for us, there was another person behind Patty who didn't have ANY WRISTBAND AT ALL! so, the security guy chased after her, and me and Patty ran into the pitt, blended in with the crowd...and enjoyed the rest of the show!
I have three life-long passions, and Bruce Springsteen is at the top of that list. I grew up in Freehold too, and I felt a connection as soon as I heard Born to Run at my friend Carol's house, when I was around 14. His music touched me. I've been to over 50 live shows, and have seen him play in bars, at the Jersey Shore.
