If I dare say it, Sarah's birthday was this past weekend....yes I know, only 21! and we headed off to Fairfax, VA to relive the late 1990's where none other than Oasis were finishing off their US Tour.
Being from England we were fully submerged into the whole Britpop music scene during our late teenage years and then into college. The undoubted powerhouses of the Britpop genre were Oasis, led by the Gallagher brothers, and to a slightly lesser extent Blur, led by Damon Albarn (now of "Gorillaz" fame). Sarah had previously seen Oasis back in our hometown in the early 1990's but for me it was my first time and they didn't disappoint. The concert was great and for a full two hours the sold out stadium was rocking to classics as well as songs from their new album.
Not only was the music great but seeing the boys of the "Madchester" era was so funny and it was clear from some of the Americans around us that they couldn't understand what either Noel or Liam Gallagher were saying when they addressed the crowd! Without a doubt the highlight musically was the rendition of "Champagne Supernova" but also when Noel was comparing the White House to his own....apparently Noel's house is a bit bigger but not as white!
It's always funny when we get small glimpses of the "Motherland", generally it makes us reminisce and hark back to memorable moments of our youth (not that we are old now but....). Good times.
Just to leave you on a final note from Liam Gallagher, "You were Great.....but not as Great as us!"
- Local Trails are the Best Trails
- Searching out some local gravel for a recovery hour this evening......Bowie Racetrack was perfect! Dead flat, no-one else around, zero cars. 128 furlongs of easy riding. . . . #parvillacycles #gravelride #cycling #ciclismo #bowiemd #IFB
- A throwback for #timetrialtuesday, my last #ironmantri at Louisville in 2013. This year was going to be my "comeback" to the Ironman distance but it will have to wait until 2021. . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #swimbikerun #triathlon #2021goals #pactimo #gurucycles #ironmanlouisville
- 3 months of no swimming and I have to say that I am beginning to miss it. Don't get me wrong I like swimming but I don't like the process of the swim (drive to pool etc). It will be back before we know it as will races.... . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #swimbikerun #ironmantri #triathlon #swimming #triathlete #xterratriathlon #triathlontraining
