A Good Day for the Blues


So much for Seventh Heaven. We're Stuck on Six.

Too many mistakes: too much to overcome.

They won. No complaints; no excuses.

Well, at least we can look forward to the Pirates' season. No-o-o-o-o-o! ... just jaggin'. Not to be a jagoff.

As the immortal Ruth Brown sang, "It''s a good day, a real good day, for the blues."

Already on it. Here at Joey Porter's Pit Bulls, we're lining up the favorites that always make us feel better: B.B, King, Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, Dinah Washington, Lightnin' Hopkins, Ruth Brown, Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters, Albert King, Etta James, Albert Collins, Roomful of Blues, Billie Holiday, Robert Cray, Billy Price, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Irma Thomas, Kenny Neal, Koko Taylor, Charlie Mussellwhite, Tinsley Ellis, Dorothy Moore, Lonnie Brooks, Luther Allison, Roy Buchanan, Louisiana Red, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee and just about anybody from Louisiana.

Yep, as Ms. Brown says, "It's a good day, a real good day, for the blues."

Think how Brett Favre feels.

Bob Pompiani over at KDKA just said the whole week was pretty much a disaster. From the weather, the snow falling to the canceled flights, the unavailable seats to season ticket holders and the loss. Dallas was a disaster.

Screw that. This Is The Time to Keep Things in Perspective.

Yes, Mr. Pompeani, Dallas WAS a disaster -- in 1963. In fact, the entire USA and John F. Kennedy IN PARTICULAR had a REAL Disaster in Dallas.

The Steelers and all of us in Steeler Nation? All we lost was a damn football game. That sounds strangely sanguine for Joey Porter's Pit Bulls, but there it is.

The worst part now: People are gonna dissect it and over-analyze it till Kingdom Come.

Not here. Listen to the Blues. It'll make you feel better.

The Blues Channel happens to be playing a song called "Misty Blue" by Dorothy Moore. Beautiful.

Music like that, it'll take your mind off things you don't wanna think about. Granted, it might put your mind onto OTHER things you don't want to think about, but at least you'll be thinking about something else.

Hey, it's not so bad if you look at it this way: Imagine how Brett Favre feels.
