Thanks ROCCO! I checked NHL.com last night for the line up. Looks like I'll only get to see the NBC games on the weekends.

Are all the playoff rounds going to be televised in the U.S. on the Versus channel again? That blows. My stupid cable provider doesn't have Versus in the channel line up. I guess I'm not watching the playoffs again this year...

Wow, I haven't been around these parts in ages... Last night's show at The Vic was awesome, as usual, but I thought the sound was a bit off. I had a great spot along the railing on the first tier of the main flor, just to the right of the center stage. Maybe I was too close to the speakers or someth...

This one just might have to go into the WTF Hall of Fame. Although I am a bit embarrassed by the fact that it did happen in Chicago...

I already printed up my brackets sheet! I don't expect my team (Michigan State) to go as far as the Final Four again, but I'm still looking forward to the tournament. Man, I love this time of year!!

Thanks for sharing with me, T73. I hope you had as much fun as I did yesterday (slight hangover today, though - I'm paying for it). And thanks to Dev for the cute card and to everyone else for the birthday wishes :D

Not to steal anyone's thunder, but it's my birthday today, too. I am now 32 but with the same mentality I had when I was 22. So I'm heading out tonight to get my drink on. Yay me.

Hey I used to live just a few blocks away from that Days Inn. It's been a few years but I know the area hasn't changed all that much. One of my most favorite places to go around there is Duke Of Perth (here's more info including exact address http://metromix.chicagotribune.com/search/29460,0,1736334...

Kind of a sad song. It's about a guy who's had a rough life - was he a truck driver or something? - and now he's hooked on meth. Chorus goes something like this: "Will you take me back North Carolina / Will you take me back Arkansas.... methamphetamine is the last straw...." I missed a line in the m...

It was incredible, as usual. Jay took the stage a few minutes before 11:00 and played for a little less than an hour. He started the set with "Who" and, except for "Tear Stained Eye" and "Still Be Around" (as the encore), everything he played was off Okemah (if my memory serves me correctly. It was ...

When you're scanning them in, are you restoring or cleaning them up at all? Are you doing it "as is?" If you need help restoring, let me know. Incidentally - I call my Grandma "Mimi" too. Dev, I am scanning them in "as is". I honestly don't know how to restore them or clean them up. I'm so clueless...
