Ah Mondays. Who doesnâ€™t love getting back to work and starting the week all over again?
Allow me to borrow from the always hilarious â€œOffice Space.â€
â€œLet me ask you something. When you come in on Monday and you’re not feeling real well, does anyone ever say to you, â€˜Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays?â€™â€
So when Monday comes around I look for things I can look forward to throughout the week. Iâ€™m close to finishing a book, which I will review here. I got lots of magazine reading to catch up on and the new Madden game is a blast on my PS3.
Speaking of football I am 3 for 4 on my picks for last week with one game left tonight.
I correctly called the Saints Vikings and greatly enjoyed the disappointed look of fans in Jamestown.
Hereâ€™s a song with some pictures about New Orleans that is a classic.
This video brings up another item I can look forward to, the 25th Farm Aid in Milwaukee.
You see the always great-innovative-musical genius that is Neil Young covered this Fats Domino dity when I was last at Farm Aid five years ago in Tinley Park, shortly after Katrina.
I never knew it was Fats until I heard it on NPR on my way to the golf course, but Iâ€™ve been looking for it ever since.
The 20th Farm Aid was a truly awesome show, Obama introduced Wilco, and Widespread Panic played great as did John Mayer and Buddy Guy. The founding four of Willie Nelson, John Cougar, Neil Young and newcomer Dave Matthews were on their game. And for any old timers out there Arlo Guthrie rambled off a full version of â€œAliceâ€™s Restaurant.â€
This yearâ€™s lineup isnâ€™t nearly as strong but itâ€™ll be nice to get back home, enjoy some Spotted Cow and catch old Neil for the third time.
Hereâ€™s the lineup set for Oct. 2 at Miller Park.
