The number of concerts these people give (performers in general), it’s a wonder they don’t make mistakes like these more often.

I hardly go anywhere anymore, and I still can’t figure out where I am half the time.

Well you get what you pay for. Foolish listeners! To Bruce they are all the same. He is just another liberal narcissistic Prick!

I vaguely recall a recent TV ad with this as the punch line. I forget the product, however. Wasn't it John Kerry who said “Go Buckeyes” during a campaign in Michigan?

Now I am beginning to have doubts as to whether the “Boss” was actually “Born in the USA”.

Not a smart mistake with the Ohio-Michigan game coming up.

Bruce Springsteen is still alive?

Someone should tell him his career died around 1989.

Stupid dumbass. Springsteen peaked in 1975. He’s a washed up has-been.

LOL. You know what trips me up? Days of the week — except Sunday, of course. Other than that, I have a 1 in 6 chance of guessing right.

Years ago when I worked for a well known national touring band I sometimes woke up in my hotel room bed wondering where the heck I was. After about 37 days on the road every town was Cleveland.
