Jungleland (Live) - Brce Springsteen and the E StreetBand

 

Clarence Clemons passed 13-years ago today. This is perhaps the greatest sax solo in any rock song ever.

Wednesday Flotsam and Jetsam

Have a new miscellaneous thoughts and observations post up on Substack.

Saddened by the passing of Willie Mays but also that baseball lost both an icon and its greatest living player. Current generations now may have to decide between Barry Bonds or Alex Rodriguez as the greatest current living player (non-pitcher). Look no further than that as why baseball is in decline.

Banner 18 Flotsam and Jetsam

Have a new miscellaneous thoughts and observations post up on Substack.

Last night the Celtics won banner 18 in a home game at the Boston Garden. The biggest cheer of the night was as the clock wound down to 0.0 with the second largest cheers for when first Al Horford was removed from the game then both Jalen Brown and Jason Tatum were. I really enjoyed this championship. Please Subscribe, hit the Like button, or share the Link. Now time for banner 19!

Linky Links

Stuff I found interesting or amusing and thought I'd share.

- Every week it seems Joe Biden seems to be making the case for being the worst US President in history. Question has to be asked if Merrick Garland has also been week by week making the case to be considered the worst Attorney General in history?

Watched this interview live on TV. The second part in Spanish was just as entertaining.

- Taxes

- Boston coach Joe Mazzulla on his Catholic faith. Knew the Celtics coach was a staunch Christian but didn't realize he was Catholic. Boston goes for their 18th championship title tonight.

ABC Nightline - the Birth of Fake News?

It can be argued that ABC News: Nightline was the birth of fake news. The show's original tagline was  "The Iranian Crisis: America Held Hostage." That was highly editorial and jingoistic in nature if you think about it just for a minute. This should come as no surprise when you realize it was the brainchild of Roone Arledge who was promoted from heading ABC Sports to heading the news department as well. It's even less surprising when you realize that Arledge is the same guy who lost the rights to televise the real sport of NBA games and replaced it on Sunday afternoons with made-up competition of the Superstars

Superstars did better ratings on ABC than CBS did with NBA games in the same time slots. Likewise ABC News went from a 3rd place also ran to a ratings juggernaut under Arledge with the creation of ABC News: Nightline. The fact was not lost on ABC's competition and programming news stories for ratings (the clicks of the day) was off and running.

Friday Flotsam and Jetsam

Have a new miscellaneous thoughts and observations post up on Substack.

Given the overwhelming reception and applause for Bill Belichick at Foxboro Stadium the other night you'd have to think Donald Trump would be wise to select him as his running mate. Belichick has great name recognition - especially in the NFL cities across the country. Of course this would never happen. Perhaps make him the Press Secretary for a spell? That would be fun.
