You could lose a lot with me/A young lady like you/You could lose your luck with a drummer like me

This may seem cliché but TGIF! Longest. Week. Ever.

And we’re back!
Tonight I will be in attendance at the game (evidently along with the rest of the blogging world!) Third Base Line and I will be parked in her seats chatting about music and sports happenings. It’s been a while since I’ve been to a game so I am looking forward to the sounds of the dome. I am sure there will be some people-watching down at field level. Hopefully I can bring baseball back to this “baseball” blog.

In the meantime…I fangirled over The Who last night.

Non-baseball but no less important

Who are you / Who who who who
Last night I parked myself in front of cable television to watch VH1’s Rock Honors: The Who. I have been waiting for this since…well; they started airing those damn commercials. Here are my thoughts (mild warning for slightly tipsy rambling because of a happy hour which involved Mother Booze):
* Foo Fighters opening the show couldn’t have been better. I love that band (proved from my concert notes from when I saw them earlier this year.) To channel a 16-year old girl fangirling over David Archuleta (runner-up in American Idol) “They are hawter than hawt.”
* The Flaming Lips are made of Win! I have always had a crush on the lead singer Wayne Coyne.
* The red carpet photos are filled with random celebrities that I never imagined would be Who fans but evidently are fans of publicity (*cough*KimKardashian*cough*)
* The Who fucking sang my song (they sunged ma song)…Baba O’Riley. Something about the opening that makes the hair on my arms stand on end.
* Whoa, they sang my other song…Behind Blue Eyes. Fuck ya!
* You can bet your damn pony that I will be rocking out to The Who on my iPod in the morning.

*Sigh* Yeah, those were the thoughts in my head at the time.

What level of offended should I be?
A co-worker (affectionately called Ass Clown) said whilst standing in a group setting “Actually Jen, I am surprised you know who The Who are.”

Friendly reminder…
Saturday, July 19 is Willie Nelson Day at the Electric Fetus! Be there or be square!


Hey, everyone have a fan-fucking-tastic weekend!

You'll have to let me know what you thought of it. Lots of people thought it was phony but I enjoyed it. Eh.
It would have been AWESOME to see live and in person.

Who DOESN"T know who The Who are!!! (thats a lot of who's)

I dont watch VH1 anymore, so I did not know about this until 1:30 am Saturday morning (or Friday night depends how you look at things)

I think I shall spend Saturday listening to The Who before I leave to go see the Twins and get my Delmon bobblehead

Live at Leeds WILL be spun at least twice :D

James,

I am sure you can see the important clips on vh1.com or Youtube. Everyone had great performances.

Have fun at the game tonight! Delmon had a good game last night so maybe the bobblehead will bring him even more good karma.

Ann,
It sure sounds like you had a rockstar weekend! Frampton and booze...mmm...good times. I am at Tom Petty tonight so I will be riding the Rock and Roll Train to the beer garden.

OMG, that was totally lame to type out. Oh well.
