lousy day for Motown. The town is filled with stumbling, cursing, violent drunks. Oh boy can't wait!

Come on... not all Irish people are stumbling, cursing, violent drunks!

Wow! 70,000 people coming to Morristown? If they all spend an average of $100 in Morristown that day (and with the price gouging at the bars, its VERY easy to), it sounds like a pretty good pay day for Mo-town businesses!
