Baseball is the only sport where I like pros more than college and after ted turner sold my braves to AOL and shipped off the all timer pitching staff, I lost interest. Baseball is such a great game to watch live. If I played a pro sport, baseball would be the one I’d choose. Only one where you can have fun and goof around while playing.

Vanderbilt should have been the school I partied out of but chose Millsaps college instead as they have high schoolers come down and get them wasted as part of an official recruiting program. No shit. They put you with a frat guy and you go party all weekend and I puked my guts out and decided that was the school for me. I was partying out of wherever I went year 1 so UK was going to be my inevitable landing spot. Nice thing about Kentucky is you can get a degree never going to class.

Given my partying ways in the 80's, it amazes me that I kept it together enough to earn a degree at Vandy. Nashville was the most awesome college town ever for me, for obvious reasons!

I will be the first to admit defeat when it comes to the MN Twins vs The New York Yankees in the divisional series.  Even though the second game is still in the third inning as I write this,  the Yankees hit a grand slam to make the score 7-0.  If the Twins had pitching (which they don't) and our bats could come alive (they are deader than a doornail),  we would have a then only a slight chance against them.  I gave up a chance to go see Little Feat to watch game three of the series which is a home game for my team the Twins.  I think I made a poor decision, but I made the day of a woman that I know for which the ticket made it into her hand. Such is life.

Yep, it happened.  The Yankees swept my MN Twins 3-0 in the first round of the playoffs.  We have lost the last seven matchups with them to tie the record for the most continuous losses in playoff history.  Way back before they were the Twins, they were the Washington Senators.  Their nemesis? The Yankees.  This was so bad that they actually had a broadway musical made after the rivalry.  It was called "Damn Yankees". Yes, this still fits today.

LA's 200 Million Payroll shows it's hard to buy a championship.  It's doesn't help when your manager goes brain-dead in the post-season and your 3-time Cy Young pitcher lacks any clutch.  Congrats Nats!

 

Does Tampa shock the Stros tonight?  MLB executives might faint.....

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun
      By: gr8fulpair · 06/23/2019
      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.
    • Deal 9/5/89
      By: Ammagamalin Crew · 05/01/2019
      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.

      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.
