    Springsteen in Rochester

    If anybody from that area hears any updates on the status of the show Tuesday night, it would be greatly appreciated if you passed them on here.

    Thanks in advance

    School: University of Wyoming / Height: Mucho Grande / Stats are for losers
    Pros: Josh Allen is one of the best prospects in recent years. His arm strength makes Superman cry like the baby he is. He would be the perfect fit in a place like Buffalo where it has never once stopped snowing or had winds under 30 mph (according to the national media).
    Cons: Josh Allen is one of the worst prospects in recent years. If you were unaware, his accuracy is really bad. He also suffers from poor decision making which is reflected in his haircut.
    Pro Comparison: Josh Allen is equivalent to playing your drunk friend in Madden. One play, he lofts a screen pass over the running back's head out of bounds. The next play he throws a perfect 50 yard pass into triple coverage with one eye open asking "which team am I".

    Re: Springsteen in Rochester

    Which of those three categories does Jack of All Trades fall into?

    Or American Land?

    Or This Depression?

    Or Dancing in the Dark?

    Or I'm on Fire?

    I don't know what you're referring to, nor was I being serious. Its always struck me as odd about how fanatical people get over music. Though if I had to guess without having heard any of those songs listed (and if I did I wouldnt know it) I'd just say Jersey. Because well its Jersey.

    Re: Springsteen in Rochester

    I've lived in Jersey since 1990 and although I've tried I could never go gaga for Bruce like a lot of the people who grew up here.

    It's like a religion or a cult to some people.

    I was never 'gaga' over Springsteen either, but my youngest son latched on to his music and I've developed a heightened respect and enjoyment through him...which has been very cool. The live show is tremendous...should be on anybody's bucket list IMO.

    I went with my son to the Buffalo show, but my wife and I decided he could bring a friend with him to Rochester instead of one of us, and that worked out well. We went to dinner, and actually 'snuck in' to the arena to hear the last couple of tunes. While we were in the lobby, an older gentlemen and younger lady requested we take a picture of them. Father and daughter...her first Springsteen concert, his 51st.

    I've been to 4 of them.

    Don't get me wrong, I like him and I like his music but the people here (Jersey, not the Zone) seem to take it to a whole other level.

    Agreed. The guy has some talent and definitely some good songs, but he's not what some people make him out to be.
