My Best David Fricke Impression

The Cold War Kids- Loyalty To Loyalty CD Review

Loyalty To Loyalty, the 2nd CD from The Cold War Kids comes off as boring and redundant. Lead singer Nathan Willett's constant whining becomes tiresome almost from the get go. There are no real keepers in this set, unlike their 1st CD Robbers & Cowards . Yes, they still have the heavy guitar riffs and cool piano chords, but Loyalty lacks in the songwriting, something Robbers was strong on. After a few songs, Willett's voice becomes more of a distraction than anything. I was a big fan of their debut, and maybe, just maybe, this will grow on me. Sophomore slump? I'm voting yes. GRADE C-

Stuff From The Sports World
Prince Fielder's 2 run walk off HR wins it for the Brewers last night. Tough loss for the Pirates and the six fans in Pittsburgh that still watch them. Tonight it's Paul Maholm (9-8, 3.68) for the Bucs, and CC Sabathia (15-10, 2.85) for Milwaukee. Maybe the Pirates can get a "real" hit tonight. Hang in there, the Pens will be taking over soon. The game is on FSN.

Speaking of the Penguins, Pittsburgh demoted 13 guys to the Baby Pens, most notably Ryan Stone, Kris Beech, and Jonathan Filewich. Beech just can't seem to stick in the NHL.

Plaxico Burress has been suspended for one game for violating team rules. Hmmm... if the Giants were 0-3, would this happen?

Jim Leyland says he will return to Detroit next year. Good, I would hate to see him bail on a team.

Matt Millen out as Lions President and CEO, the city of Detroit riots in celebration.

and finally... enjoy the golf!
