Surely, you can cut the tension with a knife about now in and around Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Monday night is opening night for the 137th edition of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. The show runs two nights with the Best In Show being selected on Monday evening.
Tonight winners in the Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding groups will be picked and Tuesday night it's the Sporting, Working and Terrier groups. Those seven winners then vie for Best In Show.
And the local angle here is that the judge for the Best In Show is from Escondido.
You can watch both nights on tape delay from 8-11 p.m. on CNBC on Monday night and on USA Network on Tuesday night.
