Just say no to “Bro”

It’s kind of a slow day for football news, so it’s a good time to cover some off-football stuff. I have two things today:

Saw The Shins live in Philly last night at a small place called The Electric Factory, which actually used to be an old factory. It’s a great place to see a show; I saw the Foos there in 1997 supporting The Color and the Shape album and I battled for 90 minutes in the front row for an incredible show. I was 28 at the time, and I remember feeling old while basically brawling with a bunch of 18 year olds (I kicked their asses). Last night, I certainly felt older. I thought I’d see more people my age, since The Shins are in their mid-30s and play mostly mellow and retro-sounding music. But I would say the average age of the people in attendance was about 30.

Of the my starting $500 Bankroll, I was left with $471 come Tuesday Morning. Not terrible. It’s all about having fun and hopefully winning a little money in the process. I […]
