A Plague of Monsters

As you hurriedly pack the entire family into your standard-size pickup for this Saturday's Monster Jam, you'll inevitably have some last-minute questions, such as: (1) Should Grandma wear noise-canceling headphones? (2) Do babies need tickets? and (3) Is it true Grave Digger is possessed by the souls of the million compact sedans it has crushed in its lifetime? The answers are yes, no, and yes.

So feel free to bring your soundproofed granny and your ticketless 16-month-old to Sun Life Stadium, but don't be surprised if one of the weaker members of your brood returns home haunted by the spirit of a 1996 Ford Taurus. The Digger can't claim them all, you know. El Toro Loco, Maximum Destruction, War Wizard, Predator, Pouncer, and Instigator will also prowl the pits, gobbling up automotive souls.
