The Saints Are Coming

I haven't really mastered the YouTube/Blog thing yet, but in the mean time here's a link that a noble soul posted: "The Saints Are Coming," the Skids song that U2 and Green Day will perform together at the 9/25 NOLA reunion at the Sacredome (slideshow included). Here's another link if you want to sing and play along.

Oh, and there will be a football game that night too.

I don't know if the song's World Class, but I like it, and it's head-bangin' enough to get me ready to see Will Smith and Scott Fujita do a number on #7 of the Falcons. (That guy really bugs me. And I've got two reasons: I'm a Saints fan and a U.Va. grad. He's a Falcon and a Hokie. Bad combination.)

ALSO: Nice words from Green Day themselves:
New Orleans has always been a special city to us, being a hotbed of music and creativity, and it's hard to believe parts of the gulf region still remain devastated. We feel that it's important to continue to raise awareness.

The biggest problem with the Saints is that they don't play in the SEC.

No, that's your excuse.

It ain't all it's pumped up to be

Why isn't Green Day playing before the Tulane Game this weekend?

A Scottish tourist at his first baseball game...

A Scottish tourist attended his first baseball game in the US and after a base hit he hears the fans roaring "Run....Run!"
The next batter connects heavily with the ball and the Scotsman stands up and roars with the crowd in his thick accent: "R-r-run ya bahstard, r-run will ya!"

A third batter hits a slam and again the Scotsman, obviously pleased with his knowledge of the game, screams "R-r-run ya bahstard, r-r-run will ya!"

The next batter steadfastly holds his swing four times and as the ump calls a walk the Scotsman stands up and yells "R-r-run ya bahstard, r-r-run!"

All the surrounding fans giggle quietly and he sits down confused. A friendly fan, sensing his embarrassment, whispers to the Scotsman, "He doesn't have to run, he's got four balls."

After this explanation the Scotsman stands up in disbelief and screams, "Walk with pr-r-ride man! Walk with pr-r-ride!!!!"

Thanks, Oystah. That's way cool.

I went to Rock and Sake for the Fujita roll.

There was no drive-thru so I sat at the bar Joe Cullen style for my Fujita roll.

Pretty chilly after the rain.
