Duuuuude. Thanks so much for this link. I LOVE THE SITE! I spent virtually the entire FTOPS main event reliving my first Phish show ever (8.13.98) and proceeded on through the money bubble and beyond all the while rocking along to the Cologne show. You rock! Oh yeah, I had a great time Saturday too--see u next week.
