It's very cool that they are showing it. I wonder if it ever gets played? :smile: :smile: :smile:

Jim is trying to create some local goodwill since the team went 2-14 and he fired the longtime GM, I bet. :lol:

Anyone make it there yet? Reports?

We're shooting for April, double-dipping the RRHOF.

I cannot describe how I feel seeing Irsay playing that guitar. I just don't have the words.

Probably something like the Baltimore fans felt on March 29, 1984.

There follows a wagon behind him that's loaded with clay.

Though comparing the younger Irsay to his dad is a little unfair. Some rich fool was gonna wind up with that guitar - I don't have 3/4 of a million dollars to spend on anything much less a guitar.

Well, unless not having the OBEL going makes a huge difference, it's a big show of support for "it's all in the hands" (or the head) :lol:

It worked for me originally. It's not working now. Only conclusion I can reach is it was removed by its owner (which, had you seen and heard Irsay with the guitar, would surprise you as little as it does me).
