(We’re off Monday, so T10BD comes a day early. Enjoy. Celebrate. Don’t labor. Cheers. For week of Tuesday, 9/3 to Monday, 9/9.)

Honorable Mention: Golf-Champions Tour Montreal Championship (Friday-Sunday 6:30pm from Sainte-Julie, Canada on Golf Channel); Boxing: Chris Arreola vs. Seth Mitchell (Saturday 10:30pm from Indio, CA live on Showtime); WNBA: Chicago Sky @ Washington Mystics (Sunday 4pm from Verizon Center live on Monumental Network)

I really don’t want you to know that I’m WAY into Keith Urban. Honestly. Please don’t tell anyone.

Hopefully my affection for Old Man Brown will help to make you forget my previous statement…

How much do you think it will cost me to have Carolina Chocolate Drops play my wedding?

I’ve been using “Pompeii” by Bastille as a rejoiner recently. Are you in?

I’ve said publicly that there are two options for birthday gifts for me-which I’m sure you’ve been thinking about for awhile now. One is the hat my friend Tara is holding in this picture…

The other can be found on eBay…

Like I said, either is fine.

There’s few shows that would get me to Jiffy Lube Live, but if the Birds were to wrap this series against the Yanks in 4, I’d be there for Zac Brown Band…

Silversun Pickups are so underrated…

I saw Passion Pit in Chicago once. I don’t really have anything to follow that up with. This is a good song…

Noticed a billboard for the Spin Doctors show on 83 going in to the baseball game Sunday night. Thought to myself “hell yeah, I’d go see the Spin Doctors…”
