Lukin -> Not for You 3:1


Parlay that with the over on number of covers played and there's your kids' college funds.


How high would the over/under on covers have to be for you to stay away? If it were 6.5 I would still put action on it.

Is Crazy Mary a cover?


I have long argued that it shouldn't be counted as one, but most setlist trackers do.

I wonder what the bookmakers will say.

Other scenarios:

Are songs from Ed's solo albums covers? (my take: no)
Are tags covers if it's not the complete song? (no)
Are tags covers if they play the whole song? I.e., The Star Spangled on YL (maybe?)

In that case, at 6.5 I'm taking the under.

Last four stadium shows have included this many cover songs:
Wrigley 2 - 7
Wrigley 1 - 7
Boston 2 - 4
Boston 1 - 6

Remind me to make a book for these come the summer time.

I once went to a show (Missoula 2005) with zero covers. How rare is that?

Agreed. Pearl Jam’s version came out first.

I'd rather be a devout baker and expert Christian than an expert baker and devout Christian.

This seems to be what killed the case for the commission. Experts are saying it's thus a narrow ruling, I hope that's the case.

Geez. Make a damn decision you p***ies. Does a private business have a right to decline a commercial transaction based on sincerely held religious beliefs? WHY IS THAT SO HARD?!?!?!?

This seems easy.

Failure to acknowledge and protect exactly that right - to refuse to engage in a particular behavior (in this case is situated in a commercial context), regardless of its (a)political or (a)religious motivation - amounts to compelling behavior. This seems like a dangerous precedent to set.

We already compel behavior to eliminate (or pretend to eliminate) discrimination against protected classes. I don't think it's that easy.

Smart legal scholars are suggesting that today's ruling should make the case against Trump's travel ban even stronger.
