Monster Jam 2010

Smoke and dust envelope you like a cloud...exhaust so thick it burns your eyes...a mixture of cheering and music blaring to maximum heights...

Just when you think it can't get any better... your seat starts to rumble... the stands start to quake...and before you know it, you have intimidation and danger staring you right in the face.

Teetering on the edge of fear and are at Monster Jam 2010!

Can you even tell how excited we all were to see this show at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL this past weekend?

If not, you need to experience this display of man versus machine for yourself! It's still here for one more night. Be sure to get your ticket savings promo code - details here (I do believe this is a national code.)

An action packed performance of racing and freestyle, our attention was never lost. Racers included: The Grave Digger, The Felon, An Escalade, The Grinder, El Matador, Monster Mutt Dalmatian, King Krunch, Taz and for the first time in Chicago, Nitro Circus! There were even special appearances by the Megasaurus and 4-Wheeling racing teams.

We were so fortunate to have awesome seating; 4th row right behind the judges. Of course, that allowed the boys to wave and make faces on the jumbo tron. I was so proud, as you can imagine. *wink*

After the show, we realized all of the night's drivers were signing autographs at the other side of the arena. By this time, it was already late - but what the heck, right? Why not make a great memory even better! So, after standing in the quick moving line for about 45 minutes, we got to meet and talk to each one the monster truck drivers. The boys had their books signed and took pictures with George Balhan (the awesomely mo-hawked Chicago native that drove An Escalade) and Charlie Pauken (driver of the "Bad to the Bone" Grave Digger.) Of course, I had to get a quick snapshot with Candice Jolly (Monster Mutt Dalmatian) and thank her for being a successful woman in a man's world! We were so impressed with the genuine kindness and patience of each driver; taking time to talk with everyone and thank them for coming.

Was this a fantastic night of affordable family fun?

You bet!
