Where Are You Playing Next?
« on: February 17, 2024, 10:02:02 AM »
Hello, Slippery Sliders.

Today, at about 10:30 a.m. Central Time,
I'll perform at the local Food Bank, a
resource for financially challenged people.
I perform there 2X a month.

The last time there, I played "Take Me
Out to The Ball Game". A woman got
up from her chair, and said "enough
baseball, what about the Packers?"
(USA professional football)

I asked her, what (Green Bay) Packers'
football song would she request? She
didn't have an answer.

The only Packer song I know is "Go, You
Packers, Go!", by Eric Karll, performed by
The Lumberjack Band in 1931. It was the
1st USA professional sports song. In 2011,
the 1st recorded version was played, with
lyrics.

Since she couldn't name it, I didn't play
it. Was I wrong, was that discourteous?
Give us your opinion.

I could have played "On, Wisconsin", but
that's not a Packers' tune.

Best Regards, Play "Something" Today

JB

IMHO, you handled it exactly right!  A smile to her, and then play whatever you had planned.
She was the one who was a bit rude!

I don't believe you were being unkind.
I am typing this from the Adult Senior Wellness Center, a new facility at which I am playing every Saturday from 1 to 2.
No dough, but a community service, and it enhances my sense of well being.
I'm here to set up, lotta gear.

Yeah, I know food banks; we go every month too, but not to entertain.  ::)

Their lifetime attributes (good or bad) seem to have a momentum that keeps going in
that same direction as they age; if they were always nice, they get nicer, and if they
were mean they get meaner, which is why I only deal with the mean ones in regard
to where they think they'll be after they take the old "dirt nap." ::)
