WallParser Phishjoy nailed it with her comments on Live Nation, but there's more to this story...

For anyone traveling east from Seattle (probably most of the crowd), the first lineup was about 5 miles west of the Columbia River, where I-90 merged into a single lane because the bridge over the Columbia was being painted. The resulting backup took well over an hour to clear. Then, just past the bridge (where you exit for the Gorge)--bam, the road was baked up (okay, backed up) for another 2-3 miles going into the Gorge. The two-lane backup barely moved, so all the good Phish Phans started the party, chanting "Still waiting...", and "Your trip will be quick"--you heard it everywhere. The chanting continued until well into the 1st set, maybe later.

Was the band tuned into this??? Was it just an accident that they opened the 2nd set with Crosseyed, WTU, NMINML, and then wove the message throughout the 2nd set? I don't think so. They were totally connecting with their Phans who endured this 2-4 hours wait and were just getting settled in. Thanks, guys--it was worth the wait and your acknowledgement is appreciated!!!
