"Tell Me Why" I'm Shooting These Washed Up Boys?

Backstreet Boys
Today Show- Rockefeller Plaza
7am

Now which one is Justin....ooops...wrong group.

With rain threatening, this intrepid crew of 20 photographers filed into the photo pen to await their impending doom. It seems that the photo pit has once again shrunk down. And after barely fitting everyone into a spot, the rain came. And came.....and came.

As the Boys began their set, it had lightened up to a small sprinkle. By the time they ended, it looked like a tropical rain forrest. Drenching rain, with no escape, no tent or shelter. Most photographers scattered for shelter, but a few fearless shooters stood their ground and kept shooting. We were all soaked to the bone (as Dennis illustrated.)

I never knew that Canon's were so absorbent! My camera swelled up to about twice it's size from all the moisture.

Yup, this is why I bailed out once the tropical typhoon hit the plaza at Rockefeller center and ran for shelter...

Because you know what ?

You five has-been's-can't-sing-can't-dance-anymore-have-a-beer-belly-just-got-out-of-rehab-need-money are never ever gonna pay for my damged equipment...

You've cost me $ 541 and change already, where shall I send the bill for my battery pack ?
