No reason in particular for these songs. I head the Eddie Money in Five Guys this afternoon while eating lunch. You can never go wrong with George. We have stumbled across an oldies country radio station here in Omaha. It has been great and this song has been played several times. Nothing beats “hotter than a two dollar pistol.” I hope you enjoy.
One big thing to watch: Desperation: MSU needs a win to keep their season alive. A loss to the Bruins would end the season and UCLA would be crowned national champions. If MSU were to win, the if necessary game three will be played tomorrow.
