Sitting Here at the Munger-Moss Motel-- Part 6: The Band and the Hawks

April 23, 2016, Saturday

**  Jess McEntire played several of the songs fro his "Man on a Mission" album.  The Route 66 Band played a whole lot of country music, definitely OK with me.  One member of the Route 66 Band plays on Sundays in Nashville at one of the bars.

**  In between sets, they played songs from the Route 66 Radio show, featuring a lot of "Man on a Mission" songs.

**  We went back to the room very so often to watch some of the Chicago Blackhawks-St. Louis Blues game in the first round of the NHL Playoffs.  The Hawks were down 3 games to two and were losing 3-1 after the first.  Kip Welburn gave me a hard time about this.

**  Sorry, Kip, the Hawks tied it up 3-3 and went on to win 6-3.  I sure let Kip know the outcome.  That means that the final game will  be played while we are at the Curve Inn and Route 66 Hotel in Springfield, Illinois, on Monday.  At least we will be out of Blues Land.

**  The band kept playing well beyond when they were supposed to quit.  We enjoyed it.

**  After the band quit, we went over to the Skyline Lanes across Route 66 from the Munger-Moss and watched some music videos and some classic rednecks playing pool.
