OFF THE RECORD

I cuss a lot. In other news, I have adorable pets.

Is this really newsworthy?

with one comment

Tim McGraw, for those of you who don’t know, is a country music superstar. Well, in my opinion he’s a superstar anyway – critics may think differently.

Anyway, at his concert at the White River Amphitheater in Auburn, Wash. Tuesday, one individual got a little rowdy and Tim decided it was best to kick him out. According to the AP, one of Tim’s representatives said the man attacked a female at the show and “he intervened when security couldn’t respond quickly enough.” The Seattle Times, Seattle P-I and even a blogger at the Washington Post covered the incident.

Is this really newsworthy? A cowboy at a country music concert gets rowdy and kicked out – OK, maybe it’s noteworthy that the headlining performing artist kicked him out, but still – and it’s in the news? I found it because it was on the “Featured” tab on my Yahoo! home page and a quick Google search resulted in a number of articles.

And here’s one of several You Tube videos:
