  1. np FYI, Paul McCartney is referencing The Everly Brothers.
  2. You're right - oops! Do me a favor, open the door, and let 'em in. huh? I don't remember anything about Kip's Big Boy in that song.
  3. Andre the Giant at Fouts? Inconceivable! I would guess that he came to visit Bill Mercer, but why wouldn't the photo be of him and Bill?
  4. Actually... My point was that RV insisted (for football) that the helmets were marked with "North Texas", and didn't have a logo. You might say we didn't have even have a logo until the University's branding initiative, and then RV refused to put the logo on the helmet until the Heart of Dallas bowl vs. UNLV. His rationale was that nobody would know who we were otherwise. But your point is valid - the administration had disposed of the name "Mean Green" after Hayden Fry left, and RV did recognize the value of the uniqueness of the name, and the history of the years using that name,
  5. "And I love the fact that the shirts don't say North Texas... just Mean Green" RV, did you hear that?
  6. Too much going on in my life right now to be able to join y'all, especially that I'm on-call for work this week (chained to the computer). Maybe "when" we get to the sweet 16... 🙂
  7. No, this has nothing to do with COVID. I was just checking the Tower of Power website, and... they are scheduled to play the Denton Arts & Jazz Fest on October 2nd! They have appeared in Texas so rarely - this will be a real treat. https://www.bandsintown.com/e/102468734?app_id=squarespace-towerofpower&came_from=267&utm_medium=api&utm_source=public_api&utm_campaign=event&mkt_source=towerofpower.com Their second trumpet, Adolfo Acosta, is a One O'Clock Lab Band alum. For those wondering about the football schedule, that's apparently a bye week, sandwiche
  8. What's really impressive to me is the way he absorbs it and thinks out what he's heard. While I've never played the song before, I've heard it plenty of times, and I wouldn't have gotten the nuances of the song the way he does - I would have just played along, and while it would be "good enough", it wouldn't be anywhere near as good as what he does.
  9. This message brought to you by KNTU: 🎵 Get a dog Get a big dog Unless you live In an apartment...
  10. Cue Lyle Lovett Although, I think he'll sing it a bit sarcastically, being an Aggie.
