Foosball Challenge #2! Today before the show there was another fan vs. weez foosball challenge. In many cities on the Enlightenment Tour, the local radio station will be choosing winning fans who get to come backstage before the show and challenge the band to a mini-foosball tournament! [your local radio station should be talking about the contest, if theyre not, then its not likely to be happening in your area]. There are usually 6 winners per show, and they divide up into 3 teams who face off vs weezer for one game each.

Todays match results: Round 1: Team Weezer (Cuomo/Shriner) V. The Psychos (Heather Deskins and Taryn Householder) : Winner: Team Weezer. Score: 10-1. Round 2: Team Weezer (Cuomo/Shriner) V. The Weezer Squeezers (Mark Skrovan and Christine Terrace) : Winner: Team Weezer. Score: 10-3. Round 3: Team Weezer (Cuomo/Shriner) V. Team Brockton (Tim Gauntner and Steve Large) : Winner: Team Weezer. Score: 10-1.

Well, the challengers had another rough day, with The Weezer Squeezers getting in some handsome volleys at times. But again, all had fun and were stoked to meet the guys. Then we all moved back into concert mode, at a place that was designed to house the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra. The dynamite acousticly designed architecture was challenged by the crushing decibels of the weez sound system, and a bit of temporary tech issues made it a little hard to hear clearly in the very front for the first few songs, but it all got sorted out and the rock reigned supreme as it should! Some fans reported the best setlist ever, others still wanted a bit more aggro in the song mix. Most people seemed to agree to disagree and went away smiling.
