Pathetic

No, not the game last night. That was nice, but I was limited to watching the first half of the game on a 20" television in a bowling alley and the second half until 3 minutes to go on espn.com's 30 second update GameCast. So, I'll leave actual game analysis and reporting to someone who actually watched the game. Now to the patheticism...

While making my daily morning blog tour, I stumbled upon EDSBS's posting of Dropkick Murphy's covering "Oh, Boston". The Murphy's kick ass, as do bag pipes. So, I says to me-self, "Self, there's gotta be a some decent Country Road covers out there." Well, I had to expand my definition of "decent".

First up: American Idol. How is this show still on the air?
Second up: Hermes House Band. Ugh.
And finally, the cover that made me chew off my own arm:



For the love of God, if anyone has a clip of that Morgantown jam band that played at Mutt's and 123 (request to BSR for band name) covering Country Roads, please post it and let us know about it. We need something redeeming to come out of this. But as everyone knows, no one covers Country Roads better than 60,000 Mountaineer fans in almost unision.

God this is awful. I immediately regret posting this. Would someone please track down who ever made that video and kick him in the balls. Repeatedly. Thanks.

I had a seizure 20 seconds in and almost swallowed my own tongue. Thanks.

You need to get over Country Roads, that got your ass left at the Thursday night Maryland game...and of course, you pouted for days..

Days? More like still pouting. And now that you brought it up I'll probably get a phone call bitching about it again.

What's worse is I actually clicked on all your links. I HATE with a capital HATE American Idol. That Hermes thing was like trying to infuse Country Roads with your favorite Rednexx tune. And that video. (............................?) That's me being speechless.

Btw, Flogging Molly > Dropkick Murphys.
