Show Notes Chapter Markers

The promised Part 2 to the Ballparks Project is still in the works, we promise. In the meantime, Craig and Andrew riff on the Hall of Fame ballot, Pink Floyd experiences the Dark Side of "Woke" and the Houston Rodeo, a big deal around these parts, will be here before we know it.

This is the link to the Hall of Fame Tracker. This is a link to Aaron Williams' Upoxx article about the Pink Floyd dust-up . Here are links to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo performers for 2023 and all-time (including Lassie).

Check It Out Redux:
Andrew recommends Greywind's 2020 album "Afterthoughts."  This is the title cut.

Errata: We don't think George Jones sold a billion records, but we would not be surprised if his sales were in the 9 figures. The Houston Rodeo moved from the Sam Houston Coliseum to the Astrodome in 1966.
