Endlessly Wired

I actually was able to pick up the new Who CD on Wednesday. So far I have really only been listening to the first nine songs of Endless Wire and have not gotten to the mini-opera. The first nine songs are home runs which has really surprised me. I am always skeptical when old rockers try to reclaim past glories, but this time there is no letdown. This is not The Who of Who's Next, it's something different, but it is much better than It's Hard, their last album 24 years ago. Of course, this is a much different Who with Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend being the only two living members of the original band.

When listening to the new CD I hear bits of Quadrophenia, pieces of Tommy, and pieces of Pete Townshend solo. I guess it is kind of like a collaboration of fragments. Ironically, the first song is called Fragments. I really am enjoying the new CD and it leaves me wanting more!

The New York Rangers return home to host the Buffalo Sabres about two hours from now. The Blueshirts had a great trip out west going 3-1. But most importantly playing better defensively than they have all season. The question about today's game is who will start in goal, Kevin Weekes or Henrik Lundqvist? I go with the hot goalie and that is Weekes. He won back-to-back on the trip scoring victories over Anaheim and San Jose. Last season Head Coach Tom Renney would ride the hot goalie. I don't see why he should not follow the same format this year. No question Lundqvist is the number one goaltender, but in the current NHL you need two netminders. Hey, Buffalo does it why can't the Rangers?

New York Yankee Johnny Damon turns 33 today. He was spotted last night at a swanky NYC nightclub celebrating his MVP performance in the Bombers' Subway Series win in seven games over the New York Mets. You know, the one that the "phone slammers" guaranteed us. The one that only an evildoer would question the two all knowing radio guys about...

Stay Onsides!
