Hello from Rochester NY:
Back by popular demand……..
JUST THOUGHT I'D ASK:
▲ Why do all the Anthem singers at sporting events think that they're really auditioning for Las Vegas?
▲ Where are those 200,000 fans of the Rochester Jazz Festival the rest of the year?
▲ Why do we sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" when we're already there?
▲ Why don't the Las Vegas lounges book more contemporary entertainment rather than the stream of retro 80's bands? In Las Vegas' heyday, the lounge groups were as good as the headliners in the
▲ Has anyone used algebra since they left high school?
▲ Can the reality shows get any more ridiculous? (Who's Your Daddy?, Naked & Afraid, Duck
Dynasty, Real Housewives of New Jersey, The Kardashians, etc.)
▲ What if the Hokey Pokey REALLY is what it's all about?
▲ Why do super heroes wear their underwear on the outside of their clothes?
▲ If the Cincinnati Reds were the first major league baseball team, who did they play?
▲ If Leo Fender hadn't invented the Fender Guitar, what style guitar would the rockers be playing
▲ Why doesn't the fattest man in the world become a hockey goalie?
▲ How do fans in China form the letters when singing Y.M.C.A.?
▲ If laughter is the best medicine, who's the idiot who said they died laughing?'
▲ If parents say, "Never take candy from strangers" then why do we celebrate Halloween?
▲ What must Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Willie Mays & Mickey Mantle be saying to themselves when today's ballplayers have to have a special song played before they get up to bat?
▲ Why do the same fans who sit in sub-zero blizzards at football games run for cover when it sprinkles
at baseball games?
▲ The single most mystifying question in sports: Where the hell did we park the car?
▲ Why do marching bands try to play U2 and Guns & Roses songs with 50 trumpets, 50 trombones
and 150 drummers?
▲ Why do I even think of these things?
