The Madness Campout Is In-Tents

The Big Blue Madness Campout is officially underway. Tents went up at 7:00 AM and more continue to pop up throughout the morning. I’m here covering the mania for KSR and I’ll be popping up on the site a couple times a day to keep you all informed.

    Honestly, what type of check drawing redneck pitches a tent 7AM on a Wednesday to campout for BBM tickets. This crowd will be epic in so many awesomely bad ways.

    SSI Lawyer, do you deal with any rednecks in your quest to get them their benefits? Perhaps your empathy is lost in $$$$$$?

    9 – I just graduated from UK. I can tell you that 95% of these people are NOT in college.

    What type of SSI Lawyer would criticize his/her own clientele?

    can someone explain how they keep the line organized & honest with all these tents all over the place? Ive never been there for this so I’m confused. It would seem like when its time to take the tents down and get in line it would be absolute chaos

    They are not in school…its called vacation days. WHy do peope get bent out of shape about what others do with their time? AS I tell my 2 year old, worry about yourself!

    Took a full day last year for tents to go up across the street. Might be looking at a record crowd. I wouldn’t camp out, but if people want to take vacation time they seem to have a lot of fun. It is what makes us the true BIG BLUE NATION.

    Looks like “Deans” has no sense at all. From that vantage point, in tent, imagination supercedes sight as one must hear, and feel (ground quake) and smell all groceries drop. Camper van Deanster failed to give his chosen land all ‘doo’ consideration.
