I went to the opening show of U2’s tour the other night. I sat way, WAY up top.

It was a good, but not great, show. They started strong, with all pre-“Joshua Tree” songs, including the one above. They sounded great. Then they played the whole album to the “conclusion”. For the encore, aside from playing “Beautiful Day” and “One”, because he had our attention, Bono started Bono-ing, with long soliloquies in-between obscure b-sides and discarded third-side songs from “Joshua Tree”. After his third lecture, as people were waiting for one last “big” song, the light’s came up and the show was over. So, this

Good thing it was a gift. Here’s the set list, if you are going to the show somewhere down the road.


NHL Western Conference Preview:

I realize Game-2 is tonight, and I should have been on this earlier, but Fridays are for teh sexy, not the hockey.

Anyway, Nashville has the goaltending to get through to the Cup. Pekka Rinne has been ridiculous this playoff season, stopping the Hawks in four and the Blues in six. His GAA is 1.41, and he has a .950 save percentage. Up front, Nashville has two solid scoring lines, and on the back end PK Subban has been the spark the Preds defence has needed to get over the hump.

Anaheim has to find a way to use their size as an advantage. They have some speed, but really need to crash the smaller Predators forwards around if they wat to make this series go longer than four games. Getzlaf & Silferberg really need to be more of a presence, and if Kevin Bieksa isn’t 100%, John Gibson, a goalie best described as “serviceable”, isn’t enough to get the Ducks to their second Cup final in team history. Plus, Fuck Ryan Kesler.

(Hopeful) Prediction: Predators in six. I hope it kills Gary Bettman whilst backhandedly validating his southern-ish expansion.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Predators at Ducks – 7:30PM | NBCSN / Sportsnet
  • MLB:
    • Astros at Yankees – 7:30PM | ESPN / TSN
  • MLS:
    • New York Red Bulls vs. LA Galaxy – 6:00PM | FS1 / TSN2
    • FC Dallas vs. New York City FC – 8:00PM | FS1

Also, what the fuck is so special about ABC’s Sunday Night programming they can’t put the real NBA Finals – Spurs-Warriors – on in the evening? The game was at 3:30ET. Do more people watch “Once Upon A Time”? WHY EVEN BOTHER?!
