True story: Nickelback once headlined a show at my college. Before the concert there was a band playing outside (Starsailor, I think — I’m a sucker for Britpop) in a free concert. So I walked all the way to the other side of campus to see Starsailor for free, bought a CD, then walked home. All without seeing Nickelback. Why did I need to? I saw a band that was 50 times better for free. This was like a decade ago, and they sucked back then, too. For all I know the members of Starsailor now work at Starbucks — just like Nickelback founding member Mike Kroeger did when he came up with the name for his awful, awful band. Anyway, this story is funny.— Ernie @ SFB
They must’ve reserved them during the offseason, thinking it was going to be another season that the Lions still sucked. Unfortunately, they’re good this year, and now it’s like inviting a bad omen to play at your game.
