This past Friday night, celebrating his 67th birthday, Springsteen sat during the four segments of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about his 50-year music career, life and the current state of politics....more
I've been practicing basketball with my son. This is the equivalent of saying that Paris Hilton is your math tutor. The chances of advancement are slim to none.
I'm not afraid to say out loud, the kid is the worst one on his team. It's six-year-olds playing in a no-score game. Being the worst one is saying a lot. They're all terrible, but he's worse. He's very good at running back and forth on the court. Other than that, it's just not his game....more
