    A cop calls in to report a shooting on his radio: " It appears that an elderly woman shot her husband because he walked across the floor she just mopped" Captain: "Well did you arrest her?" Cop: "Not yet sir, the floor is still wet"

    I like having defensive players in Kevin, for exactly the reason you mentioned, it's just kind of fun to move them around and see how many extra points you can garnish.. I'd missed that. I'm ready to go, hopefully my football team is slightly better than my baseball team this year. Good luck everybody!!

    Cave in Hall of Fame

    [big]Cave enters Aria Hall of Fame on his own terms[/big] [smallest]October 29, 2007[/smallest] [smaller]Source [/smaller] SINGER Nick Cave has accepted his induction into the Aria Hall of Fame, but it was on his own terms. The Australia-born songwriter last week said he was "dreading" tonight's induction during the annual music awards. But on the night, he was gracious in accepting the honour. However, there were a couple of conditions - that his band mates from The Bad Seeds and his former band The Birthday Party be inducted as well. "I cannot really accept this until we get a few things straight," Cave told the crowd at Sydney's Acer Arena. "What I can't figure out is why I am up here and The Bad Seeds aren't? "I would like to do a bit of inducting myself." Cave then thanked the members of The Band Seeds and The Birthday Party, the 1970s Melbourne gothic rock band which launched his career, for all their work with him over the years. "I would like to, by the power vested in me, induct these people also into the Aria Hall of Fame." Cave also thanked his mother, his wife Susie Bick and four sons. Later, he told reporters there were a few other Australians artists he would like to see join him in the select club. "Is Kylie in there?"asked Cave, who recorded the duet Where The Wild Roses Grow with Kylie Minogue in 1996. "She f---ing well should be!" AAP And there's a slightly older article on his reluctance . (I wanted to make the title something to do with "Cave" and "Hall", but I'm not as good as RJ at these things. Any suggestions?)

    Meaning of Ribbon in the Sky

    I was wondering if anyone out there knows the meaning of Stevie Wonder's 1982 hit Ribbon in the Sky? I love that song; it has its own meaning to me, but is there a general one most people use? Thanks for your help!

    What do I have to do!!! 7 freaking touchdowns from Brees and I still lose! Guess it's a team game, and if there's nobody catching TDs, you're still vulnerable.

    Vick is fun to watch, but the numbers show he was never as good as we thought he was.

    An excellent call, Kevin. I have always hated the "no cut" rule. How often do stars get injured in football? It does not make any sense to be stuck with them if they can't contribute to your team.

    I'm definitely interested. Check out espn's fantasy leagues, Kevin. I belong to several leagues in both Yahoo and ESPN, and I find ESPN's leagues more user friendly. Just a thought.

    The Who kicked off the North American portion of its 50th anniversary tour tonight in Tampa, Florida. The British rock legends actually have two separate stateside legs scheduled for this year, with the first winding down May 30 in Forest Hills, New York, and the second running from a September 14 concert in San Diego through a November 4 show in Philadelphia. The trek, which has been dubbed The Who Hits 50! tour, is being viewed by some as “a nostalgia trip,” with the band looking back at its long history by playing a bevy of its classic songs, as well as a few select rarities. At a recent press event, The Who’s two surviving founding members, singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend, had slightly differing views on how to characterize the tour. Daltrey agreed that the trek was “a nostalgia trip,” noting that when the band’s plays its old songs, it brings fans “back to the time when [they] first heard them.” He added, “I kind of accept all that now, and I’m very happy with the fact that we’ve been around this long, and can still do it and still do it well.” As for Townshend, he said he views the outing more as a multigenerational celebration, and not just simply a commemoration of the group hitting the half-century mark. Explained Pete, “It’s a celebration of the fact that when people gather together to be in the company of a band and their music, they’re celebrating not only their own experience but, you know, sometimes too this will be a grandfather who brings his son and his son’s wife and their children.” Townshend also maintained that he finds it “very poignant” that he and Daltrey are still performing together after so many years, while adding with a laugh, “On the other hand, it’s also a bit sad…You would have thought we’d find something better to do by now.” Speaking about what kind of set list fans can expect from the concerts, Daltrey noted, “We’re not gonna get away with not playing ‘Baba O’Riley.’ We’re not gonna get away without playing ‘Behind Blue Eyes’ and those ones. But it will be nice to do songs that we haven’t done.” Townshend added that tour will give them “the chance maybe to do a few things that are a bit different or a bit new, or we shall see.” Since The Who launched its 50th anniversary tour with a U.K. leg last November, the shows have indeed included some relatively obscure songs, such as the mini opera “A Quick One (While He’s Away),” “Slip Kid,” “So Sad About Us,” “The Seeker” and “Pictures of Lily.” American fans also likely will be treated to a few interesting gems. Both Daltrey and Townshend have insisted that The Who Hits 50! Tour will be the last major trek the band will do, although no final show has been scheduled yet. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts are serving as the opening act for nearly all of The Who’s 2015 North American concerts. Here’s a full list of the band’s stateside dates: Leg One 4/15 — Tampa, FL, Amalie Arena 4/17 — Miami, FL, AmericanAirlines Arena 4/19 — Jacksonville, FL, Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena 4/21 — Raleigh, NC, PNC Arena 4/23 — Duluth, GA, The Arena at Gwinnett Center 4/25 — New Orleans, LA, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival* 4/27 — Austin, TX, Frank Erwin Center 4/29 — Houston, TX, Toyota Center 5/2 — Dallas, TX, American Airlines Center 5/5 — Kansas City, MO, Sprint Center 5/7 — St. Louis, MO, Scottrade Center 5/9 — Louisville, KY, KFC Yum!

    Jim Morrison

    I just finished reading No One Here Gets Out Alive, Jim Morrison's biography. Wonderful Read by the way. Anyway, just wondering about what people think about his death. No Autopsy, No Doctor or Police Signature, No-one saw his dead body but Pamela Courson. Apparently. Is he really dead?
