Yesterday, on my way home from LA, I received an additional birthday present. I've been a fan of The Amazing Race from Day One and have lurked on this website for forever, but have never had the time nor the burning desire to post, but yesterday was too much not to share.
On my way thru security for American Airlines, I damn near bumped into Brandon and Nicole. Who could miss the big old head of hair! I tried really hard not to stare as they made their way thru security at the lane next to me. Then, I tried really hard not to be too obvious as I followed them to their gate. They were headed out to New York on the 8 am flight, WITH all of the rest of the top four teams!
Holy Cow! I nearly fainted. Instead, I found a seat nearby and watched and listened for over an hour until their plane left. (Good thing I was really early for my flight). At the last moment, final boarding call, even Phil appeared from nowhere and walked on!
Pretty cool 40th birthday present...must be my good karma! For what it's worth, everyone spoke to everyone else, almost....
