    I just saw that he had been offered a trial by the Cleveland Browns, but was in a car accident the day before and was injured which pretty much ended his football career.

    Funny how the fates played out.

    Wow. That makes me sad. His son, Clarence Clemons, was friends with my brother back in the 80's. I'm not sure if they've kept in touch.

    My first Springsteen concert was at the Carlton Theater in Red Bank. (now the Count Basie theater). I was in junior high. The last time I saw them was the first real date with my husband. Springsteen and the E-Street band has been a big part of my life.

    I know what I will be listening to today.

    my first show was Madison Square Garden 1985. I was so blown away I arranged for tickets for the following night while I was there. I'm 65 shows and more than 25 years down the line and I don't think I'll ever forget the first time I saw Clarence do the sax solo in Jungleland live.
