UCONN?  UCONN?  You mean CONN JOB, right?  This is the type of scheduling that made me stop getting season tickets.  St Edwards (if you knew me, you'd know how painful it was to type this) could give tOSU a better game than UCONN.  There are 75 1AA teams better than UConn.  With variable pricing of tickets now the norm, tOSU would have to throw in the weasel game for free to make it worth my while to get season tickets that year.  That might be the first game in my life that I would voluntarily skip watching.

Sweet Geezuz.  What kind of drivel is this?  Do you think this is NCAA Football on your PS3; set at rookie?  And that you should get EVERY recruit you want?  You should try to live in the real world and not in the matrix of your PS3's hard drive.

I'm on the table crew at Cleveland State.  Tonight we host the Cleveland Div 1 Boys Regional basketball Semifinals.  Only parents and essential personnel will be there.  Its going to be weird to be there for two high school games tonight.

We'll let 2,000 students still attend school all day, but they can't sit in the stands tonight to watch a basketball game.

Best live album of all time
 

You know, there's nothing more tragic than a man ruining his reputation in one stupid moment.

Money.  FM radio that you and I grew up on and that I worked in was art.  A DJ put his show together with music that would flow across a whole spectrum of the genre that was Rock n Roll.  I grew up listening to WMMS and WNCR.  Denny Sanders.  Matt the Cat.  Kid Leo, Betty Korvan, Donna Halper, Jeff Kinsbach and Ed "Flash" Ferencs.  Then the FCC loosened and deregulated the rules of ownership of radio stations which created conglomorate radio.  Playlists were set by "experts" to maximize listeners and generate the ad revenues necessary to justify the investment dollars by those same conglomorates....and just like that, an art form died.

I was originally turned on to this show by one of my best friends who was from South Yorkshire, England.  I watched the first episode and he asked me how I liked it.  I told him I had a hard time understanding the dialogue.  He laughed.  He said, "Hell, use the closed captioning!  I do!"

Many English shows are that way.  One of my alltime favorite English shows was Foyle's War.  It too was 6 shows per season.

I love me some <in rough voice> "Courtesy of the Peaky Fookin Blinders."

My wife Loves Rascal Flatts.  I refuse to go to their concert with her so she goes with our daughters and a couple of girlfriends.  She tried to sell me once by telling me the lead guitarist's instrument is Scarlet and gray and has Buckeye Leafs on it.  I still refused to go.

If they're nameless, they ain't that good.  Especially since you can self publish and get picked up by SPotify pretty easily.  So, I reject your position.

Goes without sayin.  Duane was specifically a slide guitarist.  I don't think of him as a traditional lead, although he did share lead with Dickie.  But he was the greatest Slide G of all time.

I'm not sure what to tell you.  Back in the day, he was considered in the same breath with Clapton, Hendrix, Kath, Robertson, Howe, Gilmour, Hackett.  I was in radio back then.  Its true....or call me a liar.

Well, back then, it was more than just technique and virtuosity.  It was show.  At that time, they were competing against Genesis (considered at the time THE best live band ever), Yes, Pink Floyd, ELP et al and their light shows and showmanship.  LZ and Jimmie Page in particular were acknowledged to be great musicians.  Just not great on stage compared to the GIANTS.  Nothing today comes close to some of those vintage shows.
