Go Patriots! Congratulations to the AFC champs. The Patriots are headed to the Super Bowl to face the New York Giants. Sport has a way of bringing people together. A championship team in any market can grow the local economy. No sooner has your credit card bill come in from Christmas shopping and here we are back in the stores again just because some guy missed an “easy” field goal.
This, of course, is a music blog. So why talk about sports? Well, first it’s a sleazy way to get noticed on Google. An idea we don’t suggest you practice at home. J The other reason, and most important, is that for many years now, sports and music team up very well thank you. From the Star Spangled Banner, an old drinking song that no one could possibly sing well, But Steven Tyler did make the attempt, to the fight songs in the stands, The marching bands at high school and college football, the Super Bowl half time stage, pre game, post game music extravaganzas and the MBA All Star Week that tends to keep many music industry professional … Busy! Players themselves get in to the music game as well. Then again, some try. Remember the Super Bowl Shuffle? Frightening! J
