Speaking of, here’s Paul McCartney and Ernie K-Doe, live at the Warehouse. Surely someone recorded this?

Tom Dempsey, 63-yard, game-winning field goal vs. the Lions, November, 1970. The actual kick is about halfway through the video.

Dempsey’s record has been tied several times in the last few years, including yesterday by David Akers, but it hasn’t been bested. Amazing, given the league-wide improvement in kickers, that this record still stands.

Allen Toussaint - Sweet Touch of Love

Posted by The World Keeps Going Round, this is another excellent track off of Toussaint’s From a Whisper to a Scream. I would be surprised if you didn’t like these songs, surprised and concerned.

Such a good tune. This was the cake-cutting song at our wedding, 2 years ago today. (an idea that you should totally steal)
