It feels a bit awkward to say this, but I think I watched last night the best show ESPN has ever shown. It was a 2018 Eagles live concert at the Forum in Los Angeles, not a sporting event. The Eagles closed out the show with Hotel California, Rocky Mountain Way, and Desperado. Wow!

It's almost unfair that the Eagles picked up Vince Gill to tour with them to replace the recently deceased Glenn Frey, adding to an immensely talented harmonizing southern rock band of Don Henley, Deacon Frey, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit.

The Eagles had 5 number 1 hits: "Best of My Love" (1975), "One Of These Nights" (1975), "New Kid In Town" (1977), "Hotel California" (1977), and "Heartache Tonight" (1979).

How lucky am I to be a kid of the 70s, the greatest music era ever!
