Billy Corgan poked fun of my home town nickname "Sactown" during the concert. Yes, the word does have it's unattractive traits I'll admit. But we don't care. I feel like I've been defending Sacramento my whole life, and from our own natives most of the time. I'm pretty sure even I briefly jumped on the "let's hate Sacramento" bandwagon at one point when it was the thing to do. But over the years I've grown to love it here. It's diverse, smack dab in the middle of Tahoe and San Francisco so snow ski or surfing is less than 2 hours away, and if you look hard enough... Sactown has some flavor! I totally stole that off a guy I dated once but he'll never know ;)
Here's a little of the flavor I saw on my walk to the Crest last weekend.
