8:22PM – Well here we are! There are thousands upon thousands upon thousands here to mark, celebrate and take in this historical moment. 

I am in the stands that are filled to the rafters.  My fellow stand sitters are staring at me like I am nuts sitting here with a lap top 😉

We walked and walked for over a mile in the blazing sun and it was worth every moment.

Gov. Bill Richardson just concluded to rousing applause.  The lights are blinking and the sounds of Bon Jovi are in the background.

I will not be able to give a play by play as much as I would like, but make sure you listen to WEAA’s live coverage.  88.9 FM!
