If ">" is the sign for "perhaps sucks slightly less than, but still really sucks", then I agree.

Winner.

Comment 30 Oct 2015

That's pretty creepy, gotta say.

Wow!! Just listened to the isolated guitar and vocals from Layla.  Fascinating.  Incredible playing.

Upvote for TTB.  Have seen them a few times, last with Doyle Bramhall and Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.  Fabulous.  There was a video available of their whole Mad Dogs and Englishmen tribute set at Lockn' but it's appears to no longer be viewable.  Derek's a master at so many styles, Susan's voice is amazing, plus the huge, fantastic band and their wide ranging selections of songs.  They're just so good.

Great thread!  Going to spend some quality time with all these videos.  Never got to see ABB in the early years, but did get to see them during the Derek Trucks/Warren Haynes incarnation (with Steve Winwood also on the bill).  Great show.  Just amazing how Derek Trucks has been able to continue Duane's legacy while forging ahead and in his own way melding musical styles as did the ABB .  As was Duane, Derek Trucks, to me, is the best guitarist alive - excluding Eric Clapton.

I don't think the canon guys were really mad, it had to be pretty depressing to watch that as a Rutgers fan.   Right at the end of the clip you can see the guy gesture to the fans.  I was about 8 rows back and couldn't see what he did, but there was definitely a reaction to it from the Buckeyes fans.  Later on when Rutgers did score, the ABC showed Brutus reacting to the canon also, but what the camera did not show was the entire cheerleading squad flinging themselves to the ground like they had been shot dead.  So funny.

There were Buckeye fans everywhere Saturday.  Every bar we went to Buckeye fans were by far the majority of the group.  One place you could barely get a beer because they did not anticipate the crowds - waitresses literally running around.  The "Shoot the canon" chant was classic.  We were right down in that corner, those guys were not happy with us and Brutus and the cheerleaders all having fun with them.  Almost got the four-sided O-H-I-O chant going, the Rutgers student section in the other end zone didn't want to cooperate for some reason.

I watched the replay yesterday and Fowler said the Rutgers crowd was booing the defense on  Elliott's long run.  That was not the Rutgers crowd, there weren't enough of them left by that point to make any noise, that was the OSU fans with the Zeeeeeeeke chant.

Fun game to go to, would have been more fun if the Rutgers fans had showed some sings of life.  The most excited fans I saw were four guys with no shirts running into the stadium who said to me on the way by, "We're going to beat the spread!".  Pretty funny.

I'm in New Hampshire, so... check the best craft beer store near you.  Crooked Stave is based in Denver.  Pretty small outfit I believe.  This is part of their artisan beer project.  If you are interested in sours in general, The Bruery makes a number of them that are very good (though pricey).  Alvinne Undressed, an oud bruin from Belgium is my favorite sour.

Currently a Crooked Stave Progenitor (Dry hopped wild sour ale).  May go with Allagash Odyssey (Belgian strong dark ale) for the game.
