    Default Packed and ready to go ... to Azerbaijan

    All,
    Making my first trip overseas and it's to Baku (of all places). Will be doing some very different things with coverage and I think you guys will like it. If the site's news is a bit dated for the next two weeks (in terms of a release not getting up within five minutes of its release), I'm 12 hours ahead of you guys (east coast ... 16 for those in the Pacific Time zone). So basically the night and day is switched -- which for those of you that know me, that's not too much from the norm for me.

    I'll try not to be the kidnapped American journalist, although Grips would like you all to believe it'll be the reverse Borat ... me stumbling around AZE making boneheaded blunders and getting deported or something.

    Looking for a very unique cultural experience.

    Oh, and keep an eye out for Grips' Quality Inn Monday Knights updates. We won 3-1 on Monday over The Riverside. Solid game by all the former wrestlers on that team.

    I was going to say something to the effect of "I'll bet you'll fit right in there" but Grips was funnier.

    Dart,
    My overseas travel tip is if you have to deal with non-english speakers (God forbid), speak slowly and LOUDLY.

    I am sticking with the kidnapped American Journalist angle...

    Oh yeah did you manage to pick up an electrical adapter?

    We need a "Misadventures of Twink in Azerbaijan" thread immediately.

    At the airport, just ate McDonalds (blerg), really want a gatorade. Flight is delayed. Hot chick about 10 feet from me speaking something I've never heard.

    That's the latest ... and I'm in Philly.
