Last night, we were at the Curve Inn on Route 66 here in Springfield, Illinois. The music was loud, beer cold (10 0z-mug for $1) and the usual cast of characters you'd find at a true roadhouse.
All the TVs were tuned into ball games. Some of the music on the jukebox was classic rock, but most newer and a lot of it better than we'd expect. One song was a country rap one that we liked, something about country by a guy named Cole Ford. May have to buy it. But some of the music was very offensive.
One guy put some music on and people were giving him a hard time, saying that he was going to be judged by what he played. He got us all by putting on Air Supply's "Nothing at All." He might as well have played "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue" or "Feelings."
We were watching the Philadelphia Phillies-New York Mets game on one set along the wall, when it suddenly went to CNN and we saw that President Obama was going to have a news conference. With it being this late, about 9:15 pm CDST, it must be something pretty big.
