Music seems to be on my mind. Was able to catch both Pearl Jam shows this past week at the Wells Fargo Center. Springsteen made it Monday night too. Here is a review from the Inquirer. PJ changed up about half the songs in their set list each night. Staying with music....for Arcade Fire fans or those that are interested, here is a link to their new album you can stream. And lastly, Phish is playing in Reading on Tuesday (10/29) and then three nights in AC (10/31-11/2) - if going to any of the shows, let me know.
QB controversy over? From PhillyMag.com: 2.76 was Foles’ average yards per pass attempt against the Cowboys. It’s the worst mark this season by any NFL quarterback who threw at least 10 passes in a game. If you extend it back and include all of 2012, only one quarterback has posted a lower number in a single game. Ryan Lindley (Cardinals) went 10-for-31 for 72 yards against the Jets, averaging 2.32 yards per attempt last season.
For those thinking about ski season, I thought this was a good advertisement from Killington.
I enrolled this week in the GOES program. It allows you to get through TSA security quicker at the airport. Will let you know how it goes after the next step which is an in person interview. The cost was $100 to sign up.
If you or anyone you know has video security cameras on their property, please ask them to register their camera with the Philadelphia Safecam program. Here is an article from CBS on the program.
