Not much comment on the game Saturday night...however I will chime in on the Rushmore of female singers...There are no others to even be considered....First on the list is Linda Rondstadt if you were and JG wasnt around during the 70's (she was the biggest selling female artist of the decade) you missed the voice of a lifetime...Patsy Cline indeed belongs and a huge influence on Linda...Dione Warwick and I am going to throw a more recent artist on the Rushmore and that would be Amy Winehouse, a true talent with huge demons
well said chas...these young whippersnappers (under 40ish) have no clue about growing up when there were real talents
JG...I had children when New Kids broke, so no I dont remember lol...music begins and ends with the best selling act in history...John, Paul, George, and Ringo lol
This will be one of those seasons where the Super Bowl champs REPEAT...book it, take it to the bank..Seahawks are the best in the league and second is not that close...but then again everyone here thinks Peyton is entitled lol, although Eli is still unbeaten in Super Bowls heheheh...
Mike Piazza is indeed getting shafted, the guy was a next to nothing draft pick that turned out to be one of the all-time best among catchers that could hit...
Beyonce??? Beyonce??? Queen of the lip sync??? Tons of people with boatloads more true talent than her...Justin Timberlake is tops on the list, although my years will deceive, he IS the modern day Sinatra, can sing and act rather well...Top concert draw so far this year is occupied by the number two on the Rushmore, George Strait, who actually does COUNTRY music, not this insane skinny jeans crap that passes for hillbilly music today...Third, you must still include Mick Jagger on there and yes he is current because the Stones still pack 'em in each and every time they tour...Last but and a nod to the tweeners, Taylor Swift the kid can sell records, draw incredible numbers on tour, and just broke a new single on top of the charts...Then again, I could have included some of the niche artists that so-called music snobs bring to Noogaville (tongue firmly planted in cheek)
There are NO EXCUSES for fewer than 17,000 at Finley Saturday NONE WHATSOEVER!!!
The drama in the NFL is rather intense I would say, Mark Cuban is quoted as saying the NFL will implode within a decade...I remember growing up you had NFL on Sunday and then Monday night..now you have NETWORK (CBS) taking Thursday...Cuban goes on to say there is too much television, not to mention adding a team in London ANGLAND (veiled Ernest T. Bass reference)...
Ironic that todays 5 at 10 is talking NFC, but there is a photo of Peyton Poo, NOT the Super Bowl winning QB Russell Wilson...Seahawks take the Lombardi again...best team in the league and second isn't even close..
JMC you are spot on with your perception...I would say something but I shall refrain...It is indeed sad when the mighty JR is gone, Mocs game tonight is an afterthought on sports reports and not one mention of the Lookouts and Smokies division deciding series starting tonight...perhaps you can go to Riverfront Nights and enjoy the money the Blue Cross shelled out to enjoy some his favorite NOBODY HAS EVER HEARD of bands lol
JMC there is so much ill will against the Mocs today, and I guess they want to suffer through another washed out year by the Clorox Orange...who knows what their issue is with the Mocs program...The most idiotic thing I heard all week was Jeff Styles asking Jim Reynolds on air, if the Mocs could compete attendance-wise with the CFC...my god, is Styles that far removed from reality?????
True enough on the Fonz JG...I will give you that one...Can't wait for the Mocs home opener year 8 lol
Jason Priestly?????? that was on television when aluminum foil was required to watch any Fox program....
THE DEFINITIVE RUSHMORE
High school films Rushmore...First and funiest Fast Times at Ridgemont High reminds me of my days at the REAL Hixson High School during the early 70's...Dazed and Confused...Cooley High, the inspiration for the series What's Happening...and last but not least the best of the best Blackboard Jungle...I know a little before your time JG, but still the measuring stick
