From AZ Central via Shakedown Sports comes the news that the Super Bowl Kickoff thingy the NFL had planned now has a band! The band is one of the staples of American music. U2, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Coldplay do not hold a candle to this force of melodic perfection!
If you remember these hits from the 1990s and early 2000s, you'll want to rock out at the free party at Glendale's Westgate City Center marking 100 days until next year's Super Bowl."We feel this will appeal to a broad audience, including families, everyone in the community who wants to come out to a fun football festival, and our sponsors," said Erin Brin, vice president of events for the host committee.
Sugar Ray, the Southern California rock band led by singer and Extra co-host Mark McGrath, will be the headlining act at the "Countdown to Kickoff . . . 100 Days and Counting" celebration Oct. 27.
("Is Right Said Fred not available? Maybe the Proclaimers??? No? Damn. Fine, tell Sugar Ray we'll take them."- Erin Brin)
True story....I saw Sugar Ray play at the Fairfax Virginia County Fair last year. Mark McGrath is as dreamy as ever in case you were wondering.
