Townsend says, "Goodbye, Indy!"

- Thanks to my daughter, Jasmine, for directing our video this morning. Note the early dabbling in avant-guarde style. [Like mother, like daughter ...]

June 11, 2014 - Indianapolis

1:30 p.m. E.T. - The adventure begins. Flight for Fortaleza, Brazil, scheduled to connect through New York and São Paulo, cancelled in Indianapolis just after all passengers boarded and ready to take off at 12:30 p.m. E.T. Pilot says New York's O'Hare is buried in traffic. Is this the first sign of an epic global traffic jam of soccer fans heading toward their Shangri-La?

Still standing in line for re-ticketing. The party is on people!
