I had no idea he founded Fastway. I loved this song way back in the day - the guitar hook in particular. It sure sounds dated now...

OK, this one is just for us old timers:

"Doreen Tracey, a former child star who played one of the original cute-as-a-button Mouseketeers on "The Mickey Mouse Club" in the 1950s, has died, according to Disney publicist Howard Green. She was 74."

I liked J Gruden in the booth. Not that I was hung on every word of his but I'd take him 10 out of 10 times over that annoying as all F named Tony Romo. He is a pompous douche. I don't give a F what you would do on any certain play Romo.

I liked Gruden on MNF more that Sean McDonough. Man, that guy grates on me.

Romo is good.

That's "Impossible to ignore."

My g/f in my mid 20's liked the Cranberries after they just broke big (her face looked like Dolores' but w/ green eyes), so I went scrambling in to my local record store where everyone knew me for buying heavy metal and when I asked the owner, a fellow metal head, if he had the cranberries in house, he looked at me and said, "WTF! Has the world gone mad?! I'm sold out." We laughed but I think he was laughing at me because he thought I wanted it for me.

RIP young lady Dolores
