  1. 880 small points away until you are…… ultra experienced? Just plain old? Either way, congratulations!!!
  2. I didn’t move to New Jersey until 1976…… when I was 4. Not that my father didn’t bring along to a bar or two with him at that age, but we weren’t making the club scene by any means. Left Jersey in ‘97 to work at a summer camp in Appalachian Kentucky. Ended up committing to be a full time volunteer there for two full years, met my wife, and have never left. Hard to believe I’ve live in Kentucky longer than I lived in Jersey but it’s true.
  3. By no means am I saying what I heard is true, just sharing what I was told a few times. Every time a big house was being built in my town the rumor was that it was Springsteen building it. There are all kinds of rumors about him around there.
  4. Which is (at least was 24 years ago when I left Jersey) next to Leggetts Sandbar, where I worked for one summer. Rumor in Manasquan that I was told more than once was that Kittie’s Back was about the owner of the Osprey. FWIW.
  5. Good point. Nobody will ever guess he’s in his 70s if he has obviously dyed hair.
  6. No, his music just makes my ears bleed. At least Manilow’s music can exist in the background, unnoticeable unless you focus on it.
  7. Yikes, another tough call. Honestly, I’d take Manilow. Now please give me a moment while I shotgun a bottle of grain alcohol to try to wash that statement from my brain.
  8. Man, that’s a tough call. I would probably take that money to attend. If you made me watch and listen, that’d probably be a deal breaker.
  9. I can hear “My Love Will Not Let You Down” somewhere in there. I listened to the album driving around town today. Didn’t think much of it, to be honest. Sounded like something I might like if I gave it more listens but I don’t know if I will.
  10. Absolutely, it’s disgusting to see. My second oldest daughter played soccer in high school for 4 years. My youngest is entering high school in a couple of weeks just tried out for the same team. She got cut. I was sad for her (though she doesn’t seem so heartbroken about it) but happy for me because I sat in the stands for 4 years with parents thinking they were the ones in the field. It was obnoxious and embarrassing, so I typically wouldn’t sit with them.
  11. I actually banned my father from coming to my baseball games in high school. What the hell did he know about baseball (other than playing in the minors for the Giants)? Sadly, I didn’t realize it was a selfish thing to do until I became a father myself.
  12. I would agree with you in general that it’s a shame the parents of the vast majority of competitors can’t be there. But on the other hand, it’s good for some of these competitors to get a chance to compete without thinking about their parents in the stands watching them.
  13. Might as well just have Phil Collins out there with him to duet on Real Man to finish the show.
  14. I was hoping to go my whole life without ever seeing Springsteen and Journey on the same bill. Not a chance in hell is even tune in to this on the TV on the chance that I might stumble into Journey.
  15. Hmmmmm….. interesting. Certainly looks like a book coming out. What does the response “Pre-Estreet Band” mean? If the book is about his time pre-E Street, I’m not interested.
  16. So is this actually a thing or just guessing/hoping? I would love to read a book from him. Different perspective and not afraid to speak truthfully.
  17. I really enjoyed the podcast. I can’t imagine buying a transcript of the podcast thought. At a certain point I guess you just sell everything for a buck. Would be nice if them to donate the proceeds to charity but they can do as they please.
  18. Just listened to it. Or at least a minute or so of it. That was rough. I really can’t take her voice.
  19. This will be cool to see. Pretty sure my oldest sister attended.
  20. Thank you. I don’t want to read the article, but I do appreciate the response
  21. That’s fantastic, thanks! For the record, I wasn’t questioning whether she belonged on the team or not. I live in horse country and know the amount of hard work these guys and gals put in. I didn’t think they would throw somebody in there just for name recognition. What I was questioning was whether or not she was one of the 10 Olympians to watch because she is one of the ten best competing in an event or because she is one of the ten most recognizable names, and I think you answered that. I appreciate it.
  22. I haven’t looked at the article either. Is it an article on 10 stars to check out, such as Djokovic, or 10 familiar names that’ll be interesting catch a glimpse of, like Djokovic and Springsteen? Is Jessica Springsteen considered the best rider on the US equestrian team? I saw the 4 on the team interviewed on the Today Show this morning and I didn’t get the impression she was the star of the team but I honestly have no idea.
  23. Why not? It’s just storytelling, like movie making or authoring books. As an aside, I’ve worked with some kids over the years that have since shown up on the news dead or having killed and I have been surprised by a very low percentage of them. Tough to overcome a dangerously dysfunctional upbringing.
  24. Yeah, make the quiet songs and play the quiet songs. Don’t dictate to the audience what they should do. By and large, the audience knows what to do. They’re generally quieter for the quieter songs (or heading to the bathroom), louder for the rocking songs. I find it arrogant, you don’t. Fair enough. I’m certainly not upset about it nor do I need to be told to stay home. I won’t spend that kind of money for a concert, nor do I really have any desire to go. I’ll listen to the albums.
  25. And that’s the arrogance. “I know you put out a ton of money to enjoy a concert but this is about me, not you!”
