It's the stuff political junkies like myself live for.
Like every election cycle we've ever been through this year's has been full of high-five's, crushing defeats, and reevaluations.
In some cases we've watched victory speeches and concession speeches in others.
Despite his vow to carry on regardless of what happened last night Marco Rubio finally got the message that the American people weren't interested in anything he was selling.
Good riddance, "Little Marco."
I couldn't help but laugh when Kasich (The Captain's guy) got word that he'd won his home state of Ohio.
After being soundly and completely rejected by millions of voters all across the country Kasich finally got his first win and more or less declared himself King of the World.
He vowed to rent a covered wagon and sail it across the Rockies to California, then on to Cleveland where he'd proudly accept the republican nomination.
Then there was Ted Cruz.
And like most of you I really do like and support the guy, but come on.
He took to the microphone like he'd just won the whole ball of wax.
Sorry Ted, but you didn't win anything last night.
He gave a shout out to Rubio then urged his former supporters (both of them) to join his campaign as they set out to stop Donald Trump.
And wining three out of the four contests last night was the only guy who in my opinion is capable of crushing Hillary Clinton was Donald Trump.
And you have to admit his win in Illinois after the way "Unholy Left" went after him last week was awesome.
And that my friends is sending shock waves throughout the ivory towers of the Republican Party Establishment types.
At this point their only hope to stop Trump is to deny him the 1,237 delegates he needs to secure the nomination which is the only reason Kasich is still in the race.
The millionaires and billionaires who make up the (members only) Republican Party Country Club are obviously willing to disregard the will of the American people and place one of their own at a brokered convention which at this point is their only real option.
Don't think they'll do it even if it means destroying the Republican Party as we know it?
Of course they will.
They're fully aware that if it appears they've stolen the nomination from Donald Trump the vast majority of his millions of supporters will revolt and Hillary Clinton will be the next President of The United States.
They don't care.
They're so worried about protecting their own individual power structure and personal fortunes that they're willing to sell their souls and the American people down the river to keep it.
But that's politics and as we all know, it's a blood sport.
I guess we'll see who blinks first...
