DAVID JONES – JOE’S LAST STAND – Patriot-News I did not see the “Outside the Lines” special on the problems that Penn State is facing with its football players, but Jones did and does not believe that Joe Paterno handled it well, while university president Graham Spainer did.
I am down the Shore this week, so I thought I would choose something by the favorite, Bruce Springsteen. I realize “Girls in Their Summer Clothes” would probably be more appropriate, but it is not one of my favorites. “Fire” on the other hand is one of his best. The staccato guitar is fantastic, exceeded only by some incredible lyrics like these:
Sometimes its like someone took a knife baby Edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley Through the middle of my soul
At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet And a freight train running through the Middle of my head
On Saturday evening, Erica and I were watching the Yankees vs. Red Sox game on FOX. Joe Buck and Tim McCarver were talking about Boston starter Tim Wakefield‘s rookie season with the Pirates when he won two NLCS games against the Braves. Of course, those wins merely prolonged the inevitable for Pittsburgh as they lost in game 7 when Francisco Cabrera knocked in Sid Bream to win the NLCS. McCarver then added it was the most famous hit in Atlanta sports history.
