I mean, it's a tweet saying that an annual event is coming and asking what you are excited for. It's an annual event so you already know it's coming. There's literally no news in that tweet. I was at least expecting it to have a list of confirmed music acts.

... None of which was in the tweet linked in the original post, so I'll stick by my assessment.

It's like when you were at the Drive In years ago and they would flash pictures of Popcorn & Hot Dogs & Sodas on the screen. Giving me a picture of boiled crawfish in early February only get me anxious for a BOIL - maybe it's the Bayou in me. :wink:

My guess is that Pete was less surprised by the content of the tweet relative to their overall media campaign, and more surprised that THAT was THE tweet you chose to link to :angel:
