Also, a bit of Romostradamus on calling the td pass route when Dallas called the timeout. Little Belichick didn't see it coming

Romo was calling a bunch of plays. He's as much fun to listen to as the game was to watch.

Max being Max.

The Dodger's catcher had to have told Pederson to expect the deuce.

Yeah, Johnny has been the lead singer of Lynyrd Skynyrd for a while now. If you've never hear Brickhouse Road, it's a great song (and terribly depressing as it's a tribute from Johnny to Ronnie).

I saw LS in 2019 at a corporate gig in California. There were maybe 2,000 people in a big parking lot and I was able to get up to the stage. They are pretty much a cover band now as Gary Rossington is the only one left from the glory days, though Ricky Medlocke has been with them for a long time. 

They played Freebird as the second encore / final song of course. After Johnny sung the first verse, he grabbed what appeared to be Ronnie's hat from the drum riser and put it on a microphone stand at the edge of the stage. He then waved to the crowd and walked off. Behind him they displayed the names of all the members of the band who had died.

The second verse was a video of Ronnie, with his vocals being accompanied by the live band. It was incredibly emotional and something I'll never forget. I'd see them again in a heartbeat.

I found a crappy YouTube clip from 2019 of another performance in which they did the sam thing:

Maybe Max gets frustrated at being pulled early by Roberts and does not re-sign with LA?

Saw .38 Special at the Beacon Theater in Hopewell last night.  Nice recently renovated theater dating back to 1928 with a seating capacity of 669. 



There were likely 500 of us there last night.  Not sure how they kept such energy with such a small crowd, but they rocked it...

They have an impressive catalog of their own and added several well done covers:

Setlist
 
Rockin' Into the Night

Rough Housin'

Wild Eyed Southern Boys

Medley:  Back to Paradise / The Sound of Your Voice / Somebody Like You / Honky Tonk Dancer / Teacher Teacher / You Keep Runnin' Away

Second Chance

Like No Other Night

Feelin' Stronger Every Day
(Chicago cover)

Ride the Storm
(Don Barnes song)

Guitar Solo Jerry Riggs

If I'd Been the One

Fantasy Girl

Good Times
(The Easybeats cover)

Trooper With an Attitude/Drum Solo

Caught Up in You

Encore:

Chain Lightning

Hold On Loosely

Travelin' Band
(CCR Cover)

Don Barnes is the only remaining original member, but it's his voice on most of their hits that carries the day...
