I will kick your prom king assBy: Melissa | March 13th, 2008
Here are Thursday’s Earthquakes Odds & Ends to get you through the day:
* According to the economic impact summary for the proposed SSS (and my fandom certainly DOES NOT extend to reading that thing) the new stadium will include a concert stage. Personally, I don’t have an opinion about this one way or the other. The stage design might not be as bad as some pundits are predicting. And a few outdoor concerts could wind up being a great revenue stream for the Quakes.
* The reserves schedule was released. Great news. Can’t wait until we have a reserves squad.
* I’ve got zero information on who made it on the plane to South Carolina. And to the trialists who did not, a guy named Richard Lee is offering classes here in Oakland to train people how to work in the medical marijuana industry. Don’t laugh. Its actually a thriving niche business here in this State.
And I think that wraps it up for today. I’d personally like to give a little shout out to two friends who got a write-up in a local magazine I’ve never heard of for their monthly DJ nights. I also implore everyone to click here to check out an amazing collection of graffiti art from all over the world. Lastly, congrats to our womens Nats for p0wning at the Algarve Cup.
Here’s today’s song. I’m a huge John Legend fan and I’m a huge fan of the Colbert Report so this video has been on constant repeat on my laptop all week. The last time John Legend had a concert here, I wrapped up an insane 12 hour work project then hiked my tired ass up to the hill behind Berkeley’s Greek Theater to listen to the man sing live. It was totally worth it.
