The opening table was stripped pretty clean and fast this year. Last time I saw it collected that fast was before they started putting the chain up so VIP could actually get in and see the blades on the table.
Huh, I was not aware of that, I got there at 9:45, I suppose the knives were made available at 9:00. Guess I shouldn't have stopped for breakfast on the way down. I won't make that mistake again, thought that was only Friday they did that.
