Yeah, but, you really didn't have to. The radio  did.

But I put in that 8 track player in my 1965 Ford Econoline Van so I didn't have to listen to it on the radio. 

Ok I'll admit it, I had one just like this but at least I put fat tires with Cragars on the back and skinny ones in the front.

I'm going to bring up one particular play that wasn't mentioned in the article as an example.   When the coaches did call one of those rare pass plays (the one I'm thinking of was in the scond half) - JT missed a wide open Braxton about 25 or 30 yards deep across the middle.  JT was forced to hurry his throw, however, as Nick Vannett uncharacteristically whiffed on his block. 

If I remember that pass correctly it was in the second half and JT was throwing into the wind, the pass was short of Braxton....and yes he would have most likely scored.

Great article!

 I added that after 40-plus years in the business, we all would understand if he just wanted to get on his bus and go to bed! Ronnie then turned to me, wagging a finger at my face, and said. 'Lzzy, it's a moment in time. You may never remember these venues you play or the names and faces of the people you meet, but they will remember that moment of meeting you for the rest of the their lives. So you gotta make it good for every single one of them!' This statement is something I carry with me every day through my own journey and career.

.....and so true!

COACHING! Plain and simple the Bucks got out coached that day......and I still can't figure out how Sparty got the ball to start the second half and get the wind in the 4th quarter. IMHO the final drive would have been much more difficult had Sparty had to make the final drive into the wind and into the student section....but that doesn't mean the Bucks would have won, it would have been well let just say Barrett up the middle, Barrett to the right and then let see.....maybe Barrett to the left and PUNT! 

The best seats I ever had (thanks to a vendor) and the worst game I ever had to sit through, soaked in the first have and just plain pissed in the second. 

But still can't wait for the season to start. GO BUCKS!

One of Rocks great vocalists and frontmen. Ronnie was a staple of my early rock years and he had so many great songs and always found a way into my 8 track player and have several of his CD's in my current collection... ROCK ON RONNIE!

Thanks Whoa Nellie another great job as always.

Everyday is a great date to show you just how you feel about TTUN!

 BIA secured a place in history when it became the first CD to sell a million units. You’d be hard-pressed to find a CD collection amassed in the 80s that did not include this album.

Well my 80's CD collection didn't have BIA. I didn't really get into Dire Straights but did like listening to Money For Nothing whenever I heard it on the radio or saw the video on MTV.

Awesome! I can see that being a challenge getting around that day. There always seems to be a festival or street fair going on that day. 

If I see someone rockin some 11w swag I'll stop and say hi.

Yes and also coaches from the Meyer tree don't fare well against their sensei. It’s good that they have their bye week prior to the Rutgers game, they aren’t a real threat but neither should Indiana be but somehow they find a way to make it a game.  How they handle Oklahoma the game before Rutgers will be a good indicator of how they handle their business for the rest of the season.

GRANVILLEBUCK.... not sure if you still live there but I truly appreciate the support Granville shows for Pelotonia every year it's a really pick me up rollin through your town. Can't wait to roll though again on August 6th!

Sorry for the hijack of TIMH but just had to give Granville a shout out!

Just a little before my "influential" music years but I do enjoy listening to House Of The Rising Sun and We Gotta Get Out Of this Place and as always after reading TIMH I had to dig in more. I was amazed at just how many versions/members there where in Animals. I think I've Got To Get Out Of This Place with be going through my head all day....well at least until 5!

Another great job Whoa Nellie, Thanks!

Another one that brings back some memories is Eric Burdon & War - Spill The Wine
