Jennifer Lopez - Same Girl

So as I made it through the 20,000 people, down to the Bruckner for a quick stop at Taco Bell mesmerized cuz I saw JLO, right here in New York, in the Bronx.  I took the BUS there. I won the tickets from another Bronx superstar- Jimmy Rodriguez from Don Coqui's restaurant, @doncoquimy head was spinning and spinning.

I mean, I remember way back meeting Jimmy and remember him talking about his yacht.
