Sounds like it should be a fun evening - too bad I live so far away! :(

We are less than a week out for the event. If you haven't signed up, please do so ASAP. This is shaping up to be a great event. We will have some giveaways, great food via our potluck, an informative discussion and 90 minutes of high definition bbq!

I know that this note is coming a wee bit late (since the showing was last Saturday night), but "SPOILER ALERT" - there were several incidents of the "F-bomb" being dropped. Not exactly something that I would want to show my in-laws or my children (if I had any!)!!!

I bought the DVD the week after the American Royal in Kansas City this fall and fortunately watched it with my wife before inviting others over to watch it together. Cancelled plans to have a showing in our house to friends and family as the language (and a scene or two) could have (make that SHOULD HAVE) been edited.

I'm not a prude, and I realize that there are other teams out there that would think this tame, but from a family man perspective it went a bit over the line. Other than that - this is a GREAT documentary!
