I was going to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving, then realized that most of the team is from outside the US. So, happy Thursday everyone! By the way, in case any of you care, my anguish over missing the Dylan concert earlier this year was mitigated by my seeing the Springsteen On Broadway show in NYC last week.

This is my worst pool performance in quite some time. Thankfully it's a short tour leg.

Mine arrived in the mail today from Amazon, but I'm not allowed to have it until next month!!!! I guess it will be up to youtube to tide me over until then.

I've been listening to the gospel box all night. I've listened to 4 discs so far and oh man is it a blast.

Since hearing Bob's rendition of Once Upon A Time, I've listened to 7 or 8 versions by other singers. Sinatra, Bennett, etc. I find Dylan's singing to be much more believable than any of the others. A great, great interpretation.

SO many 20-pointers and none of them mine. The Gospel Box is going to be one of the best Bootleg Series for sure. All of the new Bob stuff comes out in November each year and I always have to wait until early December (the wife gets mad if I buy it for myself when my birthday is only a few weeks later!)

I more aspire to be like Captain Beefheart, Willie. I am really, really looking forward to that gospel box. It took me a while, but this lapsed Catholic has grown to love those albums.

go put on a fancy feathered hat and have a shot of spiced rum...you deserve it, Captain. Can't wait for the next Bootleg Series. A lot of tracks from the Toronto Massey Hall show, the best venue in the city. Maybe a Wilbury tune will make it into the set for Tom?

It's so seldom that I get to do something "captainy." "Captainish?" Anyway, my pleasure.

Hey Skelly, you don't seem to have picked a 20-pointer.

I will be back as well. Why try to change us now?! I was just happy to catch two shows on the tour. At our local mall they replaced the HMV store with an independent record store and they carry all kinds of great stuff. I picked up a a bootleg of Bob and Tom Petty from the 1986 Australia tour. Bob is very chatty between songs. He tells the audience to "shut up" at one point when he's talking about "heroes" (very similar to the opening of Hard To Handle, if you still have a VHS player!). Great live show, lots of Empire Burlesque in there and a killer Watchtower.

You know, Willie, I was waiting for the scores from the very last night, but I don't know if we'll get them. It seems to me this has happened more than once on this site, and I don't get it. Not that it would make a difference to our number 7 ranking. After being in the middle of the pack most every tour, it was good to see us have some success. I don't know what the future holds, but if there is another pool in the future, I'll be here. Hope to see you all then.

Not that anyone seems to bother checking in anymore (can't really blame you) but we did finish 7th as a team. Way to go Pounds of Headlines.

Bob really got stuck on the setlist for 3/4 or more of this leg. It just might be enough to keep us in the top 10 as a team though.

The Oshawa and Toronto shows were great. Bob was more playful in Toronto and seemed more energized by the crowd. I had 5th row in Oshawa stage left and had a direct view to Bob the whole night, but couldn't see George or Stu very well. In Toronto, 7th row, same spot. the stage was bigger so it was easier to see everyone. In Oshawa everyone put their cell phones away, in Toronto, it was a bit a struggle between security and the crowd, but all in all pretty good compliance. Highlights for both shows include Stormy Weather, Once Upon a Time, Desolation Row and Ballad of a Thin Man. Duquesne Whistle fizzled a bit in Oshawa, but came together the next night. In Oshawa,the guy next to me at the merch stand bought the last poster, so I lost out (long story involving the world's worst dinner and getting there just in time).
