  1. Not only is it a beautiful venue, but the acoustics are really good! Usually at DTE (or wherever...) we can hear the songs just fine, but when a band member may be talking to the crowd between songs, it's really hard to understand what they are saying. At Red Rocks it was all crystal clear. Just an amazing place.
  2. My wife was reading to me some of the comments in a Facebook group of local parents against the school district's mask requirement. Not sure what she was doing in that group, as apparently it's clearly labelled as "not for disagreement, but only for like-minded individuals". LOL! (Also, my kids don't even go to school in the local district.) Anyway, they included complaints about pediatricians refusing to sign exemption paperwork because the kids don't actually have a condition prohibiting them from wearing masks. How amazing is that? They were actually surprised that their pediatricians wouldn't lie for them!
  3. So we've been in school less than two week, and my high school freshman has been a "close contact" of a classmate with COVID on consecutive days. She's been vaccinated, so she doesn't have to quarantine unless she develops symptoms, but that is still putting the vaccine to the test a little more than I care to. Also, get your damn teenagers vaccinated people!
  4. I was at the Mud Hens game last night. So great to see all of those guys in a AAA game (Boyd, Baddoo, Hill, Greene, Tork, Paredes, even Stewart, Clemens and Kreidler). Baddoo is so friendly. He was happily signing autographs right up to the start of the game. Love that guy. I feel a little bad for Robson now. He gets called up to Det and now that he's going back down Greene has taken his spot. With Baddoo and Hill on rehab, it's a super crowded OF in Toledo right now.
  5. So who does the game tonight (Petry I would guess), and do they reference it on-air?
  6. In case anyone was wondering, "I Think You Should Leave" holds up 4, 5, even 6 times through.
  7. I have tickets in the RF seats for the game on Sat, so here's to Miggy doubles the next couple of games!
  8. The new Bleachers album is really good. A nice collab with Springsteen and another with Lana Del Rey, along with a bunch of really solid tracks. "How Dare You Want More" is a personal favorite.
  9. I'm really enjoying The White Lotus on HBO. I'm only three episodes in, but I'm hooked. Each actor is just perfectly cast, especially the hotel manager and Jennifer Coolidge.
  10. I noticed that too. I laughed when reading the FAQ. "Can I continue to work remotely if I choose not to be vaccinated?" "No."
  11. UM just announced a vaccine mandate for all faculty, staff and students. Must submit verification of vaccination or be subject to "disciplinary measures".
  12. Hey, he beat C-Mo and Rajai Davis by a mile in the "former Tiger OF turned announcer" competition. That Rajai Davis game was sooooo painful. LOL! Seriously, I thought Jackson was just fine, though I am actually not all that easily annoyed by announcers. There are ones I hate (Tim McCarver), but most don't bother me.
  13. Went to the Mud Hens game last night and it was like a who's-who of "oh yeah, we still have that guy in the org!". Got to see Stewart hit an inside-the-park HR though. That was exciting! JaCoby also had a couple hits, but he was only hitting .220 coming into it.
  14. My in-laws live in SW MO and we have plans to go in mid July. We mostly just float on the lake and keep to ourselves when we are there, so I am not overly concerned especially since all four of us are fully vaccinated. Still those reports will make me a little more cautious while we are there than I am now at home (in Ohio).
  15. It's going to just get worse. Ohio will be legalizing it soon. I expect it won't be long until nearly all states have it, because no one will want to let that revenue out of the state.
  16. Yeah, Manning, Skubal, Mize and two bullpen games is not sustainable. I don't think Turnbull or Boyd are expected back anytime soon, so no relief in sight (pun a little bit intended).
  17. The site is just getting in alignment with all of the Detroit area sports teams.
  18. Love the accountability check! Thanks man! I'm still (mostly) playing everyday. My chord changes have gotten much better. I started using Justin Guitar lessons, and the one-minute changes practice really helped. I still haven't really played a song all the way through, which is kind of a problem. Instead I keep bouncing from riff to riff. I can recognizably play Seven Nation Army though, even with the power chord on the riff! LOL!
  19. Agreed. Regarding Reyes, I've never been able to wrap my head around how he has so little power for such a big guy. It makes absolutely no sense to me and I don't see the point in continuing the experiment much longer.
