Alex Dickerson

I went to the York Long Island game last night for pregame autographs but that was horrible as when the players started to come out for the game the rains started in between the off and on rain I was only able to get one player Alex Dickerson he did sign all 3 cards I had.  In addition didn't even see some of the other players I had items for like Wilson Ramos rumor had it he wasn't there and Wally Backman who I don't think was there as Lew Ford took out the line-up card Jake Fishman, Al Alburquerque & Robert Stock didn't see and Ian Clarkin was the starting pitcher along with Ruben Tejada who we asked but he said something that we didn't understand and he never came over.

Last night Dave and I went to Hersheypark Stadium for the Nickelback, Brantley Gilbert & Josh Ross concert.  I thought it was a weird line up as the opening acts didn't seem to be in the same genre as the headliner as Josh Ross is a country singer and Brantley Gilbert is a Southern Rock artist but both where good I'd probably have never gone to see them if they where on this bill and probably wouldn't pay to see them again as I already have.  Nickelback was great played most of the hits not playing Next Contest, Something in Your Mouth & If Today Was Your Last Day I would have liked to have seen on the set list but can't play everything.   They dis some cool things like fan from the crowd for Rockstar, Shooting T-Shirts into the crowd & Bring up Josh Ross & Brantley Gilbert up to do Cooperhead Road.  Below see links to the set-lists and some links to some YouTube videos from the show.
