One of the best songs on that album was Corazon Espinado. It's missed on the American market since it's all in Spanish and features Mexican Super Group Mana from Guadalajara. That song is wildly popular in Mexico. If you are in a store and that song comes on, you will see people around the store singing along. 

I can't agree more that this was a resurrection of a great artist. It also helped Santana bounce back from cultural missteps he made in Mexico and opened the arms of the people to one of their long lost sons. The music transcends so many cultures, White America, Black America, Latinoamerica and Latinos in the US and beyond. It's rare that one artist can do something that reaches deeply and brings unity through music. And that 's the beauty of art isn't it? I think we need more artists and works like this in this day and age.

I saw U2 Saturday night at the Rose Bowl. We were about 5 yards away from the stage. Epic BTW...

Before the show, the warm up playlist included Black Hole Sun just after it got dark. The crowd sang along, belting out the lyrics as cell phones lit up the stadium. It was a lovely tribute to Cornell. 

The band also did a tribute and dedicated a song to his surviving family during the show. It was a nice touch by a classy band. 

RIP Chris Cornell. We will miss you.

I'm currently looking at a signed photo of "Little Animal" on the wall in my office (Along with Archie, Krenzel, and AJ Hawk). He's one of my favorite players at OSU, ever. Won't forget him stepping in against TTUN as a frosh and becoming a legend at LB. I've enjoyed following his Pro career as well. Not just a great player, but a great person.

Best of luck, sir, on your next chapter in life!

I figured those 2 would be #hottakes. I could go either way on those 2 guys. I think it depends on the type of year the individuals have. Arnette could be overshadowed by Sheff or Dez. Then again, he could be the star in the backfield. Who knows. Can't wait to find out though :)

Surprised no one has challenged the Parris Cambpel #hottake

Phi, I think you and I have the same thought about this being a special year. I don't want to go so far as to predict a Naty, but there is a lot of talent and strong coaches here. All the pieces are in place for a run.

With eligibility left, I could see Booker coming back to get some more tape out there and lift his stock. Depends on the type of year he has. If he breaks out, of course that could change. I don't think Baker stays barring injury.
