World Cup Scammers

Overcast and rainy this morning but the forecast is sunny and clear for the Milwaukee Air and Water Show on saturday. Sunday doesn't look good but the air show is from 10-4 both days so I'm sure tomorrow will be packed.

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels are featured but you can also see the Marine Corps C-130 also known as 'Fat Albert.' In addition, there's the veterans parachute team, an A-4 Skyhawk and the Firebirds Extreme Team. The full program can be viewed at ( It's going to be loud at times but you can't beat fun at the lakefront! Plus the vendors sell some really cool stuff.

We'll also be going to Action in Jackson tomorrow afternoon and evening. Our friends live in Jackson, Wisconsin and it's a festival so that will conclude a busy saturday.

Apparently some Brazilian soccer fans have resorted to desperate measures to obtain tickets to the World Cup Brazilian matches. They have been buying 'disabled fan' tickets on the secondary or black markets. Even though most of them appear to be late 20's or early 30's they play the part up good showing up in wheelchairs. Human instinct did take over though when an exciting play would invariably happen they would stand up in the excitement. Naturally, their photos appeared on the internet and an investigation has been opened even before the game finished.

Be safe, friday night brings out the crazies, like me!
