Radio: WFAN 660 AM
Previews: Check out Fischer's here, and our pals at Pensburgh have the black and gold news.
Songs to Get You Pumped Up But Also Make You Think Deeply About Tonight's Game: How about one from the year the Devils came to New Jersey and first donned the red and green (1982) and the final year until now that they wore those colors (1992). 1982 was kind of a lame year for music until Thriller showed up, so let's use "Beat It" from that record, something the Devils would very rarely do during that inaugural year.
1992 is another curious year. Many of the greatest albums released in my lifetime were either 1991 (Which might be rock n' roll's best post-Beatles/Stones/Zep/Sabbath year ever: Nevermind, Ten, The Black Album, Achtung Baby, Out of Time, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Use Your Illusion I and II) or 1993 (Siamese Dream, August and Everything After, In Utero), 1992 is kind of light. So let's give Alice in Chains some love and go with "Would?", my favorite tune off of '92's Dirt.
I'm actually at the game tonight! So is Fischer, but he'll be mobile commenting. Behave yourselves. Da' Rules: Tangents are acceptable and talking about the Pens or Devils in general is OK. Keep it clean and relevant at all times. But please do not use this for other purposes and to talk about your favorite albums of yesteryear. Above all, go Devils!
