Theory of a Deadman

Dave and I went to Rams Head Live in Baltimore last night to see Theory of a Deadman along with opening act Ayron Jones an The Way.  Ayron Jones opened with a 45 minute set of originals and a couple cover songs followed by Theory playing for about an Hour and a Half some songs from the new album which drops next Friday October 27 all the usual hits and a couple covers see the set-lists below along with a Tyler Connolly pick.  We didn't stay for autographs could have got Ayron Jones and the Way as they were at there merch table after their set for the rest of the night but didn't have anything to get signed and didn't really want a shirt or CD.

Steelers @ Ravens

I went to Sunday's 26-9 win by the Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.  The game was good but the home team Ravens offense is just so bad at this point it may be a long season.  The talk of firing ANOTHER O.C. under John Harbaugh has started my thought is it needs to probably be Harbaugh this time, as we cycle through OC's but still play the same way so a revamped coaching staff may be in order... I did do autographs before and after the game it was a pretty good day that way below is what I got signed 46 people and 78 total autographs.

Yesterday I went to the 1 PM game at M & T Bank Stadium and saw the Ravens hand the Browns a 24-10 loss was a good game nice win but losing your best player in the process is never good Marshal Yanda broke his ankle on the first run of the third quarter and makes a thin line even thinner.  Ravens also lost for the season back-up linebacker Bam Bradley so an expensive W.  I did autographs before and after the game and got 51 players and 66 total autographs.  Was also able to get 3 game used items after the game gloves from the Browns Derrick Kindred and Jamar Taylor a Skull Cap from the Ravens Tyus Bowser who recorded his first NFL Sack & Interception during the game.  See below for who and what I got signed.
