Just a quick thought in between rolls of packing tape
As I pack, I have Green Day's pre-Saints & Falcons game performance on.
And as I sealed up the boxes and bags, I thought to myself: "wow, self, this is the first time that the song 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' didn't suck."
And that's because Guitar Jesus, David Evans, was playing. (yeah, I mean the Edge)
Odds on U2 playing "Beautiful Day?"
I'd say about the same as Michael Vick running the ball tonight.
(author's note: Vick, running off left guard, forced out of bounds after a pickup of eight, and it's 2nd and two for the Falcons on their own 36...)
(another author's note: When Hank Williams Jr. does his rendition of "Are You Ready for Some Football?" - the ESPN Monday Night Football theme song - he looks more feminine than Pink, who sings the Sunday Night Football theme song for NBC.)
George H. W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States, inexplicably was the ceremonial coin-tosser for tonight's game.
And yes America, it was the closest anyone named President George Bush got to the flood victims and damage caused by Hurricane Katrina.
And judging by the reception Daddy Dubya got, the only Bush getting cheers tonight is Reggie.
Or the kind you find on Bourbon Street. (I'm not even sure what that means)
And what do you know, an NFL game with some sort of tie in to the Manning family.
Who has received more facetime - Michael Caine during the 1980's or the Mannings in 2006?
