Tap the Breaks
I am a big Cardinal fan. I have a few friends that are unabashedly homers. These are guys who enjoy Mike Shannon. (I cringe every time I hear John Rooney introduce the "Moon Man" as "The Voice of the Cardinals). We are all tempted to be proud of the fact that the Cards won more games this April than any other April. That is great compared to what the "experts" were expecting out of this team (fourth or fifth place in the Central). But the "record" has to be looked at with some perspective. This year the Cardinals played more games in April than ever (29). They used to only play about 21 games every April (season didn't start until the 6th with several off days).
Still great, .621 winning percentage. That translates into a 100 win season. I'd take that!
Underrated band again
I used to love the Smithereens. Mid to late 80s band. Albums like Especially for You, Green Thoughts and 11. "Blood and Roses" has a great opening bass line. Green Thoughts was their most complete release with "Only a Memory", "House We Used to Live", "The World We Know". Smithereens 11 had "Girl Like You" (probably their biggest hit), "Cut Flowers", and "Blue Period" (with Belinda Carlyle on background vocals). Great pop songs with a hard rock edge.
Check out "Drown in My Own Tears".
