    One way to not go 0-2 for the weekend is for one of your teams to have a bye week.

    Yikes!

    For us, after setting a 12 month record for total rainfall a few months ago (and that shortly after setting a calendar year record - it just kept coming!), we're about a month past our last real rain. And with no more rain in sight, I've been watering all around the house this weekend. Not so worried about our (paltry) grass, but the azaleas we relocated (they're not yet very resilient) and the new and old pachysandra.

    We could use a little rain here. Maybe not 5 inches, but 2-3" would work out well.

    Happy 70th birthday, Bruce Springsteen!

    The local indie radio station played their picks of 70 songs this morning. Started my Monday off on the right foot.

    YMMV.

    I think the varying mileage will come from the heavy bias to a couple albums at the top of the list. The list very much appears to be from someone in their late 50s at their youngest. While I recognize the brilliance of his early work and now prefer it, I still have a soft spot for some of the songs much lower down on the list.

    And FWIW, they have some incorrect references...or maybe not. Definitely at least one that I saw immediately.

    I agree. I sort of expected the classic rock tilt; although I doubt no one has "Incident" as high as #4; I guess it was only there to pair with "Rosalita" at #3...

    Also, I wouldn't have restricted the list to just the studio albums; adding a few versions from the live albums would have freshened things up a bit.
    (And I would have made another pass with the editing - #29 "She's the One" is on Born To Run, not USA.)

    "For those scoring at home, and for those who are by themselves:"

    Born To Run - 7 of 8 (excluding "Night")
    Darkness - 7 of 10 (excluding "Factory", "Something in the Night", "Streets of Fire")
    Born in the USA - 10 of 12 (excluding "Working on the Highway", "I'm Going Down")
    Wild, Innocent - 6 of 7 (excluding "Wild Billy")
    Greetings - 5 of 12
    Tunnel of Love - 6 of 12
    Nebraska - 4 of 10
    The River - 9 of 20 (supporting my decades-long opinion that The River should have been pruned down to a single album!)

    So that's 54 of the 70. Of the remainder, the highest-ranked is "Streets of Philadelphia" at #17.

    I feel like "The Rising" and "Wrecking Ball" are the most under-represented, with only 2 songs each. I would have included two, maybe even three songs from each album over the lesser songs in "USA" and "River".

    I suspect most people would have the same 50 or so songs, and the remaining 20 would be the fun ones to talk about.

    Good vibes for tomorrow morning appreciated. Something that should be routine, but you never go wrong with extra vibes.

    Thanks, all! SonPK had a routine medical procedure this morning but those are never routine to a parent. Docs located the problem; fix should be routine.

    Much appreciation to all yall.
