NHL PLEASE I BEG OF YOU RESUME!
As I sat through the Hurricane Sandy/12/12/12 concert that is all I could come up with.
Sure the show had its hot spots. As Alicia Keys closed the show out with a tear jerking perfomance of "Empire State Of Mind". Clapton was shredding on the guitar. Keith Richards looking cooler than the other side of the pillow and Mick jagger doing what Mick Jagger does best. Billy Joel whom I am not a huge fan of had a good set.. The Boss was the Boss (Bruce Springsteen).There where other good sets as well but those are what stuck out to me. But two sets that where long and just awful stuck out too me the most. And that is The Who whom i am indeed a big fan of but was long and not very good. And the second that was just WAY WAY WAY overtime and overkill was none other than Kanye West. First he wore a leather skirt or I do not know what I looked past that. But the set list was AWFUL and the performance was even worse.
Now you are sitting there saying "George you are a sports guy". "Why talk about this concert"?!
Well as I sat there last night watching said concert. One of my favorite NHL players not named Mario Lemieux. Mark Messier was answering phones. And all I could muster up was a. "God I wish there was a game to watch tonight"!
I am very sure some is like "well there were NCAA basketball games to be had". Or "there where Nba games to be had".
While both are legit statements. It is very hard for me to get into NCAA basketball until conference play (which is 3 weeks away). And the NBA is beyond hard for me to watch at this time. So concerts like last night have my attention. And al I end up thinking when I watch stuff that usually I never would is.
NHL I BEG OF YOU TO RESUME!
