AND Oingo Boingo was the opener. Ahhh, the 80s…

My colleague was utterly confused by the reference…damn young’uns!

I always liked those Tigers uniforms and Comerica Park is one of the better of the new ones. Definitely don’t want to see the T. Rangers and Milwaukee playing under a dome!

Back to your regularly-scheduled thread…

(Baseball-related non-sequitur.)

I haven’t watched baseball for probably the past 7 years, but when your team is in the pennant race & there are extra innings, it is fun!

(Games are on too early out here in Western time, though. Who the heck can make a 2:18 start time?)

I can never remember which was Difford & which was Tillbrook. I think Tillbrook is the nicer looking blonde guy, right?

I think Elvis Costello tightened up some of their stuff later on. The only thing I remember, though, is their radio/ iconic “Tempted,” which for some reason I associate with the 1982 World Series, with the Cardinals and Brewers. This may be why it’s coming back to me now.

Funny how you still find me, right here at home,
Legs up, with a book and a drink.
Now is that love that’s making you think?

Difford & Tillbrook … brilliant pop songwriting.

That was me in the teal parachute pants with the white Capezios, pouring out my soul.

Thanks, H-Ann.
