I found a nice Catholic* boy to spend the evening with. Later, bitches!

*I originally said "Jewish," because it's always been kind of a joke that he is Jewish because of, well, the nose and, of course, his last name (like the Berenstein Bears). I was trying to be funny, but I guess it didn't translate. So, I changed it. I know The Boss is a nice Catholic boy. I've heard enough of his 15-minute-long stories. And, come on, even if I hadn't known, I could have easily figured it out by singing The Chanukah Song.

Bruce isn't Jewish! He's Catholic. Geez!

I'm so jealous you are going to that concert. Promise you'll post a full, insanely detailed recap.

Um, yeah, Bruce is a good Catholic boy not a nice Jewish boy.

i don't care what he is, i love him ( are we allowed to love him? Or is he too popular to be cool)

I saw him in Philly in 1979. Great show.

Cora said...

Ohhh man, totally jealous.


words...words...words... said...

So. Jealous. I wish I could have seen him back home, but he was all retired and shit while I was still there.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

He's one of those nice Catholic boys who only get better with age too.

I just love him. I'd only ever seen him once, in Philadelphia years ago, but then my husband surprised me with tickets when he played the Verizon Center in May. It was awesome, they played for over three hours. I hope you had fun!

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

I would have just said "working class" man cause we all know that's what he represents. I always assumed he was jewish. Next you're going to tell me Max Weinberg is Catholic too.

My mother was convinced he was Jewish. Such a nice boy; such a great voice (what that had to do with it I had no idea) and the name and nose....

She knew Billy Joel was--the Jewish mothers Long Island connection--I didn't believe her and uh thought I could meet him and marry him

I so wish I had been at the Meadowlands. You will remember that concert forever

He played Shea about a year after 9/11 and paid for the subways home. Will never forget that

Max Weinberg is Latvian Orthodox, I think. He converted.

Of course, I may be thinking of another bespectacled Jewish guy.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
