Grote’s Gripe’s: Newsflash! 23 Rolling Stones Tied To Sports News

44 Comments

BROOKLYN, NY – The Rolling Stones hit the stage at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center this past Saturday in their first of three shows here in the New York area celebrating their 50th Anniversary.  Tickets for these shows are insanely expensive (think behind the plate seat prices for your average Yankee game), so I’m sure almost all of our readers will be sitting these shows out.  The addition of Lady Gaga to Saturday night’s Pay-Per-View show just shows how they are more about dollars than anything else these days.

Regardless, I was able to get my hands on the set-list for the first show and will provide a little sports association as to who Mick Jagger and the boys should have dedicated their songs to.
