Let the Games Begin

    Yeah, I heard there’s some worldwide sporting event going on, but for me tonight’s opening ceremonies were for tomorrow’s Comerica Park show and involved watching Jimmy Buffett and Mike Utley broadcast a video chat from backstage, on StageIt.com.
    Jimmy gave a spoiler about tomorrow’s setlist (about “All Night Long” specifically), played “Tin Cup Chalice” (by request) and “Boat Drinks” (for Hockeytown), and welcomed special guest Matt Hoggatt.
    Jimmy also gave away a Landshark surfboard and Frozen Concoction Makers to the highest bidder.  The show lasted about thirty-five minutes and was a very cool way to start this weekend’s festivities.
    Fins Up!

“Welcome…to Comerica Park,” says Richard Attenborough to Sam Neill

 

Jimmy reads my tweet!

Where’s the Party?

    We’ve been wondering what Comerica Park has planned for Jimmy’s big stadium show this Saturday, and it looks like today’s Detroit Free Press might have answered all of Schmoe’s questions.

    “More planning for Comerica Park, a brief look at the new Blu-ray, and highlights from the second leg of the summer tour.  (Cameo by Tori.  The Roger Clyne podcast starts at 29:56.)

    I’ll admit it, this episode’s title is probably our lamest and least inspired.
    00:38 - Mike means no music playing on the Prime Time jukebox
    02:02 - lots of links to choose from, but let’s choose the one brave enough to be cornhole.com
    02:20 - no surprise, read about Baggo at Baggo.com
    03:11 - tonight’s pronunciation of “fingale” is brought to you by Britta Perry
    03:46 - looking back, it’s remarkable how often Schmoe will bring up tailgate-napping over the next few episodes
    20:17 - “Margaritaville no longer holds world record for Largest Margarita”, from Buffett News
    20:46 - Amazon link for the Welcome to Fin City DVD/CD or Blu-ray/CD
    25:04 - NO!
    25:58 - as heard in Episode 35 (back in April 2007)
    33:30 - still waiting for someone to pass along those photos…
    35:39 - the Perseid meteor shower usually peaks around early/mid August
    35:50 - “Chasing Jimmy doc to premiere in Caseville”, from M Live.com.  “Chasing Jimmy follows Thumb resident Bob Brown as he tracks Buffet [sic] in hopes of inviting the musician to the Cheeseburger in Caseville festival.  The movie premiere is at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 18, at Caseville‚Äôs Bay Theatre, 6850 Main.  Tickets cost $15.”
    36:22 - as heard waaaaay back in Episode 13
    37:29 - get all your Cheesebuger in Caseville info at Cheeseburger in Caseville Fest.com
    39:27 - no, this isn’t the new theme song. I was just trying to keep the beat of the jukebox music
