Bristol in Neshoba????????

Neshoba ---- The 116th annual Neshoba County Fair is getting attention from what might be considered an unlikely source this year. The cable sports network, ESPN, has contacted Fair officials about doing a live broadcast from the fairgrounds on Thursday, July 28 at 6 p.m. eastern. The visit is part of the channels 50 states in 50 days promotion. "We are so excited and honored by this planned visit," said Fair Board Member Laura Thrash. "They actually contacted us about coming, so it was really nice that they knew about the Fair and wanted us to host them at their Mississippi stop."

Of course this would happen while I am hundreds of miles away.
