This will be my 8th Rush show. My first was in Cincy on Easter weekend in '86. They opened with "Spirit Of Radio", but the crowd was so loud, you couldn't hear the guitar intro. We got 10th row floor seats for that one. 'course, this was back when all seats cost the same & the only determining factor of how good they were was how soon you got to the Ticketron machine at the local record store (Buzzards' Nest, anyone?). 

My fav album is "Moving PIctures", mostly because that's the one (like most of the rest of the Great North American Nerd Herd) that turned me on to the band as a kid. Fav song is a toughie. I guess if I was trapped on that mythical island & could only have one tune, it'd be "Red Barchetta". The story line, time signature changes & musicianship literally stopped me in my tracks the first time I heard it.

I'm going with 3 friends. Interestingly, I've been to Rush gigs with all of them, just never all at once. I'm geeked for it, but it's bittersweet. The band's saying this will be their last major tour, so I'll probably never see/hear them live again. They're all in their 60's now, so I imagine they've earned the rest.

I don't believe that quotas are a real thing. I do believe that traffic tickets are are one factor in how a patrol officer's "productivity" is measured, especially in smaller departments. And DUI/narcotics arrests always look good when promotion time rolls around.

That having been said, it's been my experience in 26+ years in public safety that most cops are just like the rest of us. They want to come to work, do their jobs to the best of their abilities, then go home. Those guys & gals, however, don't make the evening news all that often.

FWIW, I had my shoulder scoped about a month after Braxton's. 4 mos. later, I MIGHT be willing to toss a Nerf ball about 15-20 feet.


The thought of getting hit on or near it terrifies me. The thought of a Div. I D-lineman doing it makes me want to cut the arm off, curl up in a corner & suck my (other) thumb.

You give me way too much credit, Jeremy. I wouldn't have the first idea how to change a Wiki entry. 

Flattered, but it wuddn't me.

It would seem the trolling has extended to Wikipedia.....

Check out the "Owner" info in the box on the right.

Kid's a gamer. Of course he's disappointed about not being on the field.

Anyone remember the look on John Simon's face during the senior intro's before The Game in '12, when he couldn't play? Or Bobby Carpenter's when he broke his leg early in The Game in '05?
