You can talk about all the football you want, but it doesn't mean a thing unless you're the owner.
In my mid-life I bought a record store (I was fired during the Air Traffic Controller strike 1981) and ran it for ten years. After that I sold CD's and videos for 15 years via mail order and internet, I was ten years before Amazon. So when an interesting music thread comes up, it gets my attention. As with most people who are around music all the time, it's nice to listen to something that's not mainstream. I have XM Radio in my car, so I can get all the oldies I want on there.
I retired and moved to Florida two years ago, so I had to discard 4,000 record albums, downsizing. Now I play golf, workout to make up for 35 years of smoking and drinking, play softball, stay in shape. It's not a bad life, sunshine, nice weather, I drive my golf cart from the garage to the course. I use to have a guitar, keyboards, drum machine, and digital recorder but I couldn't make music that good.
Here's my toys now, a 2011 Yamaha gas golf cart and my 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo;
