  1. I just listened to Do The Clam…those damn movies. He sounded like he just went through the motions singing… and I can’t blame him.

  2. Hans, I always enjoy these Top 40 lists. It’s an enjoyable trip down memory lane.

    BTW, kudos to the Pirates taking two against the Padres in this week’s series.

    • Thanks…. I don’t know what got into the Pirates this week actually winning two against the Padres… that game the other night with all the walks and hit batters was brutal to watch– but i hung in there. My goal is to watch every single Pirates game and I am determined no matter how bad it gets to do just that.
