The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are performing in Limerick, Ireland tomorrow and we’re having a limerick contest to celebrate! So, kiss the Blarney Stone, grab a pen, and send us your Springsteen or E Street Band themed limerick.

Here’s one from our own Susan McDonald:

“There once was a girl from Cape Cod,



Who thought it’d be kind of odd,



To visit the motherland,



And pass on the E Street Band,



Now she’s on her way to the old sod”

Thank goodness Susan doesn’t live on Nantucket!!!

And what’s a contest without a prize??! First prize is an 8×10 A.M. Saddler original photo of Bruce Springsteen, donated by yours truly, and runners up will receive whatever we can find lying around the desk drawers at Blogness Headquarters.

Submit your limerick in the comments section of this post. Winners will be announced July 18th!
