After the game we drove up to Treasure Island to the Bilmar Beach Resort where we have a room for the next two nights. We have a walk-out-onto-the-beach room on the first floor of the main building. Pretty nice. We had dinner at Snapper's, our favorite restaurant in St. Pete Beach, which is about 3 miles from our hotel. I had the blue tuna appetizer and a swordfish steak. Rachel split the appetizer with me and had Snapper with sea food stuffing.
We made it back in time for American Idol. We have a nice flat screen HDTV in the room. There was a Dixie Land Jazz band playing in the bar just down the hall, so we had some odd background music. A very noisy hotel at 9:30 is now eerily silent at 11:00.
Anyway, here are my AI picks listed in order from best to worst: Adam, Matt, Allison, Danny, Kris, Anoop, Lil, Michael, Megan Joy, and Scott. I'm afraid it's Megan or Michael who will be going home tomorrow, probably Megan. We won't be watching, however, as we have our last game tomorrow night against the Twins before we head home on Friday afternoon. I'm going to try to get up another video tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled.
