Sadly, Springsteen is the ONLY reason to go to this show. Killers are out of gas, McGraw just sucks, fun = ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ, Aldean is OK, I guess, in a honky tonk after midnight when intoxicated.

Free, ok. I want to go!!!!!!!

...gotta go to CapitolOne bank, and put all my money in a new account with them.

Then, I will call my current provider to cancel, and switch to AT&T.

Oops, i cant forget to buy my NCAA march madness tickets!!!!

All this time I will be drinking a thirst quenching Coke.

Sounds fun, except for Tim McGraw.......I can go into any bar in DFW, and find 5 TM's singing about a truck, or momma.   I was a big fan of his dad though. 


ps-I didn't know you still wrote stories JT!?

@ohyeaok  


what?  this is like a 1970's guitar solo, just going in every direction without a purpose, or reason........like trippin' balls, from what I've heard.

FUN is like the Bay City Rollers of 2013. Or the Foreigner of 1984, or the Chicago of 1985, or the Pat Boone of 1958.....it's just sloshy pop for the frau, and the preteen. The whole band will be working fast food in 5 years.
