They're Gonna Tear Down the Grand Ole Opry, I Mean The Tennessee State Fair

Went to the Tennessee State Fair with my friend Scott tonight and there was nobody there. It was like a ghost town. There was a soccer game downtown and what we thought was fair traffic on Eighth Avenue was actually soccer traffic going downtown. Last Tuesady the Metro Council voted to build a new soccer stadium on the fairgrounds, so this was probably the last state fair on that site. Apparently the council set aside 15 acres for the fair, but the fair board is gioing to sue the council because they don't think that it will be enough land for the state fair. And as boring as the state fair was tonight it was more entertaining than soccer. Soccer makes curllng seem exciting.
