Re: Playoff Rituals

3-0 WITH THE CROWN/GINGER/ICE CUBE COMBO, LEATHER PANTS/JERRY TAGGE JERSEY/MUSIC COMBO.

WAS THINKING OF ADDING A FOURTH OR FIFTH SONG TO THE MIX:

1. PHIL COLLINS: "IN THE AIR TONIGHT"
2. FOREIGNER: "URGENT"

...BUT MAY HOLD OFF FOR NOW. 3-0 WITH MY CURRENT COMBO IS WORKING FINE SO FAR: 8-)
