A sort of Buffalo band
A sort of Buffalo band
The band's music was a quirky blend of smart pop and psychedelia crossed with the more experimental side of new wave. Though they never received widespread recognition outside of critical acclaim, they provided a key link between Big Star and '80s alternative guitar acts such as R.E.M.
Pretty Fountains of Waynesie if you ask me.
I know that I played this song before but come on, Liriano just threw a no-hitter!
There is a saying here in Buffalo, New York about our football team, the Bills. It goes something like "I don't care if the Bills go 2-14 every year as long as the beat the Dolphins those two games". I am sure Vikings fans have a similar saying about the Packers or the Bears or whomever it is Vikings fans deem their biggest rivals. It's funny because I honestly believe that statement to be true. Well, maybe not every year, but if there were a season or two where the Bills only won two games I would be pleased to stick it to those south beach jerks who wear aqua and white.
Now, I know the Twins have been playing poorly. You can chalk it up to injures, ass-batting middle infielders, me giving my child the middle name of Mauer, or whatever else it is you want to blame. You could write off the team this season for all I care. But I will tell you what, if you can't get up for a Twins/White Sox game I don't know if there is any hope for you.
Sure, a baseball team going 18-144 would be embarrassing-- no question about it. But hell, wouldn't it be great it those 18 wins all came against the White Sox?
It is across the horizon and his name is Toby Gardenhire.
Beck might go down as one of the more underrated musicians of the past 20 years.
Let the argument commence in the LTE's below.
As in 1% of our team is healthy.
Rather than making the easy joke about Smokestackelcrack starting tonight for the Twins I used this site to create a comic about Ron Gardenhire looking for players.

I saw these guys last night along with the New Pornographers. I will comment on how wonderful the show was in LTE form when I sober up a bit.
