Spinning Playlist – August 29, 2013

I know, I know … I apologize for a hiatus … then take a longer one. Well, a lot has definitely happened in the last week, and I’ll fill you in a little on that later. But for now, I’m celebrating the start of college football season (a.k.a. one of my three favorite days of the year – the others being Christmas and my birthday).

Anyway … getting down to business. Here’s tonight’s playlist, straight off the bike:

Have a great Labor Day weekend, everyone – see how much football you can fit in (you know I will). Here’s hoping my Tigers can pull off the win vs. Georgia on Saturday (kick-off is at 8 p.m. in Death Valley) – make sure you check out ESPN’s College Game Day, coming to you from Bowman Field in beautiful Clemson, South Carolina. GO TIGERS!!
