I love Sprintime

Former GH star (wait… current? didn’t he come back recently?) and singer of the annoyingly catchy “Jessie’s Girl” Rick Springfield is playing nearby tomorrow. Now, of course I’m not going to see him, but every morning I’ve thought about him as I drove past the concert location and seen his name on a billboard. Well… actually, it’s not his name. Instead, in big black letters on a white background, the headliner for this Sunday is:

Rick Sprinfield

No need for that stinkin’ “G,” apparently. Oddly, last year, Joan Jett’s name was properly spelled with both “t”s.

You have my permission to miss it. Heck, you can make up a better blog.

Clearly they're big fans of roc and rol.

I'm sure Rick is superpsyched to be playing Leesbur.

What, they couldn't get Eddie Mone this year?

That's gotta be a nice shot in the groin to the old ego when you used to be a rock star and the desire of women everywhere, and now they misspell your name on the marquee. Good times.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
