Football... It's What's For Dinner




Ah, today is the start of Football Season! And what's more American than FOOTBALL? Ultra-violence, merchandising and the death grip of corporate control combine into the All-American sport. And much like any corporation, once you're of no use, they cut you off like a diseased appendage. And of course, Beer! Just make sure you don't kill any dogs, or get involved in Las Vegas gunplay and you'll be all right!
It's looking pretty bad for my hometown Giants. We lost our best player to retirement and our coach is on a death watch. As long as these assholes don't win it all, I'll be fine.
And The Jets are looking good; but hey, it's The Jets. So you know that somehow they'll screw things up!

Nazz, You gotta love Material Issue!
What is that track from?
Would you consider posting the whole show if you have it?

i believe the material issue track is from a 1991 live show from Ohio. My notes ay it is from something called "Gone But Not Forgotten:. I have some other live stuff from a chicago show called "going through your purse".
i'll post it up in the next couple of weeks.

Don't know what that game is your playing but the football season started on Saturday 11th August. Everyone knows that. (doing my bit for Anglo-American relations you understand) ;)

aaaaahhh you must be talking about soccer. that's the game where you kick the ball.
you europeans have always gotten it wrong!
a football, of course is thrown or carried; and rarely kicked.

it's the same mindset in which we americans speak english!!

Ah yes, football, round white ball, almost no scoring, wait, that's soccer but shouldn't American football be called soccer and football be called football since like 980 trillion humans world wide call it that everywhere except in the U.S.?

In any case - you're from East Rutherford, New Jersey? HAAA! Hey, Eli's hurt? Call Testaverde!

P.S. no Elton John "Benny & The Jets?" HAHAHA! (Thank God!) Coulda also posted that relic of an album Bear's Choice! Or "The Saints Are Coming" by The Skids (or U2 & Green Day.)

I'll refrain from joining in the "your football is an abonination and wrong in every way" argument and instead mention that Las Vegas gunplay can get you a lucrative summer job as a pretend wrestler.
