Day 2:

I decided to catch a taping of a show I watch a lot called Fast Money which airs on CNBC. I made a quick sign in the lobby of our hotel which references an inside joke that I figured the producers would enjoy. Lindsay went up to our hotel room and watched it on the TV. This clip shows the particular commentator’s reaction upon first seeing my sign:
