A Couple of Tidbits
Hey team, here are a few things to keep you going.
First, in my A, B, Cs, I think I forgot Graham Parker and I know I forgot Frank Zappa.
Graham is great, a long-time BRP favorite. Squeezing Out Sparks is an amazing album, but the catalog is rich and deep. I've seen GP many times, and he is best with the Rumour. Check him out, you won't regret it.
And if you don't know Frank Zappa, well, that would be amazing. Zappa was a one-of-a-kind guy, and was waaaay before his time. His music sounds contemporary today - what the heck did it sound like 40 years ago? Regardless, he was a big "oops" for me, and I apologize.
Second, I went to the OC, and happened upon a cover band called One Night Stand. They played an interesting mix of songs from Thorogood to ZZ Top to the Eagles. Here they are, all set up on the Boardwalk.
Third, I haven't given you a Hokie update in a bit. They had a great comeback win on the road at Notre Dame this weekend, 34-31. But the previous week, they suffered a home loss to a not-very-good Georgia Tech team. They sit at 8-3, and if they beat their in-state rival UVa this weekend, will win the ACC Coastal Division and play for the ACC Championship against Clemson. All in all, a good first season for new coach Justin Fuente.
And finally, with Thanksgiving fast approaching, it is time to get ready for the season of all seasons. Yes, the Christmas season! If you have been shopping anytime since Halloween, you'll understand that the season is already here. And BRP has found yet another wonderful American to get us in the mood. Without further ado, I give you the Christmas Suit:
Shoot, I can't get the picture to rotate. I tried about 10 different ways. Oh well, you get the gist, right? Sayonara you rock 'n rollers!
