So the past week or so I've been listening to music from the Woodstock festival from 50 years ago. The performances that we all are familiar with were great of course, but the others I found were not so compelling and downright tedious at times (lots of drum solos). Some of the Santana stuff put me to sleep. Also I noticed that most of the performances would fall under the rhythm and blues category of rock. I'd argue that if the same event was held today it would be classified as blue festival. Interesting how music has changed over the past 5 decades.
Anyway that's all I got. Drop 'em if you got 'em.
I stand by my general annoyance of this day.

I had to get all Stribbie, but seeing how Gardy is handling Capps/Mauer in the media, well, I think it might be time to start thinking about finding a coach who isn't going to throw the best player on the team under the bus. But hey, that is just me.
