I was in Dallas Wednesday night, well actually I was staying at a hotel within the Dallas Fort Worth airport, which is 40 minutes from downtown and quite frankly it was scary!
I was mooching around the hotel trying to find a place to get a beer and a sandwich, although of course you won't find a sandwich in Texas. Not unless you call 2 loaves of bread, half a cow and a bucket of french fries a sarnie.
Anyway, I came across this big room with music and people hanging about outside with cowboy hats on. Curiosity took me inside and, well I actually videoed it with my phone to make sure I wasn't dreaming, but there were around 300 people up on a dance floor with full cowboy paraphernalia on line-dancing!
And this was not as I discovered a fancy dress party or anything, this was Dallas on a Wednesday night!
I soon scarpered and ended up watching the Houston Astros beat the St Louis Cardinals to win the National League title. The Astros will now play the Chicago White Sox to decide the best baseball team in America, sorry the world.
First game in the windy city Saturday night. Go Sox.
