Today's Lyric: Road and Sky, Clemson Inspired

"When we come to place where the road and the sky collide
Throw me over the edge and let my spirit glide."

From "The Road and the Sky," by Jackson Browne, on Late for the Sky

That's just a really cool lyric.

The Clemson connection: During home games at Clemson the Tiger band would always warm up and get the campus excited by marching around playing "Tiger Rag." They always passed just below my window on Johnstone F-4 about 8:00 am. For some reason I also had developed a tradition of playing Jackson Browne's The Road and the Sky" as loudly as I could at some point on game day morning. My roommate in the fall 1977 season Bill Marshall and I would do a kind of hoe down dance with a broom in the middle, standing end to end handle down, doing spins and such and never letting the broom fall. It sounds really stupid and I suppose it was, but that's what we did.

I have posted a few pictures over at which have gotten a lot of views and comments and which have me thinking ORANGE big time!

Go Tigers!
