Like thousands of ants marching their way to a giant picnic

We boarded the bus at 2 and by 4, Daryl Morton and I have made it through security to our seats a mile high in Mile High Stadium. 

It's a little toasty, but we have sunscreen, a seat and finally got a little lunch.  Basically we are happy as clams and that seems to be the general consensus of everyone around us.  As we have had the Presentation of Colors by the Disabled Veterans of America, Pledge of Allegiance led by Olympic champion, Shawn Johnson and National Anthem sung by Jennifer Hudson, we are anxiously awaiting, Congressman John Lewis, Governor Bill Richardson and of course the main man, Barack Obama. 

In the meantime, we can see out of the stadium as lines of thousands continue to snake their way towards the stadium like ants towards a picnic.
