Hello from Rochester, NY
Musical Notes and Sports Items:
♦ It's March and that means that the TV remote is going to be working overtime. Baseball spring training has begun, the NBA and NHL is playing again and college basketball is headed for “March Madness.” Throw in indoor lacrosse, golf, a few boxing events and the wives around the country will have to wait another month before their husbands answer them or resume their chores around the house.
♦ I wish Anthem singers would just sing it straight instead of thinking they’re auditioning for Las Vegas… Blue Bloods is consistently one of the best TV series ever… I can’t believe that vinyl records are outselling CD’s… I’d like to see a big time boxing or UFC event at Frontier Field… Syracuse basketball needs to sign a big center if they’re ever going to compete for a championship…This year’s Super Bowl featured a boring game, a bizarre rendition of God Bless America (with wrong chord changes) and a forgettable half-time show by The Weekend…I’m disappointed that the Major Leagues changed the name of the International League to “Triple- A East”… Am I getting older or is the supermarket playing some great music?... As a nation we are dedicated to keeping physically fit — and parking as close to the stadium as possible.
♦ Roger Eckers and I will resume our weekend gig at Charley Brown's when the nightclub restrictions are lifted. We'll be there on Fridays and Saturdays through June except when the Red Wings are in town and on those dates I'll be at Frontier Field.
