The internets are a buzz with a leak of an mp3 of the new Bruce Springsteen single Radio Nowhere. I've yet to hear the tune but those who have say its very rockin' and showcases the E Street Band in all its glory. One other post I saw compared it to Warren Zevon. Judging by the lyrics it seems similar to Tom Petty's Last Dance with Mary Jane. Here's a nice preview from NJ.com:http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2007/08/springsteen_is_lost_at_start_o.html
I enjoyed Devils and Dust and the Seeger Sessions, but I'm anxious to hear the E Street Band for quite possibly the last time (if the rumors of this being the last tour are true).

The Portland Beavers need a new nickname. Let's go Wet Sox!:http://deadspin.com/sports/portland-beavers/your-socks-appear-to-be-somewhat-damp-292736.php
A few things I think:
I think this Halloween remake is gonna suck....big time.
I think 2 years after Katrina this country is still unprepared for a major disaster be it an act of God or terrorists.
I think Brady Quinn will be starting for the Browns earlier than the bye week. Charlie Frye is terrible and Derek Anderson will not survive to opening day.
I think its sad to see the Cincinnati Reds be so awful.
I think Ohio needs to legalize gambling. The state is broke, there is no industry and the economic future of the state looks horrible. Set up casinos in Cleveland, Columbus and the Queen City and have at it.
I think I wouldn't be surprised if Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears had an STD.
I think if I win the MegaMillions tonight (over 200 million bucks) I'm going streaking.
Have a great weekend....more crap as it happens....
