Today, Blues Traveler frontman John Popper turns 53 years old. In honor of the harmonica master’s birthday, we’re taking a look back at one of our favorite Popper stories from his decades-long career, as told in his 2016 autobiography Suck and Blow: And Other Stories I’m Not Supposed To Tell, written with Dean Budnick.The book touches on a number of amusing anecdotes, including a near-threesome with porn star Ron Jeremy and the time he congratulated Trey Anastasio on the birth of his first child with a literal truckload of diapers. The histories of Blues Traveler and Vermont jam titans Phish are certainly intertwined. The two bands and their various members have worked together on numerous occasions, most notably during the inaugural H.O.R.D.E. (Horizons of Rock Developing Everywhere) tour in 1992, which many people now view as the catalyst for the modern jam band scene. Their connections would extend beyond H.O.R.D.E. as well, with Popper joining Phish onstage a number of times in the early- to mid-90’s.While Popper and Blues Traveler admired Phish (Popper refers to Anastasio as “our Mozart”), the fact remained that the two bands were, in many ways, in competition for bookings. That friendly competition gave way to one of our favorite Popper/Phish stories. In 1997, Phish had a hold on Madison Square Garden for New Year’s Eve, but Popper wanted Blues Traveler to have the spot.As Popper writes,[Phish] had what’s known as a ‘first hold,’ and we had decided to challenge them for it… We put up half the money — it was over a half-million bucks — and they had 48 hours to respond, when they had to put all their money down.”Popper also timed the challenge to coincide with Phish’s trip to Europe, and the band and a majority of their representatives were in Scotland for the 48-hour window. The band’s accountant, however, was in town holding down the fort. Naturally, to distract him, Popper “sent a stripper every 15 minutes for eight hours to his office to read from Sammy Davis Jr.’s ‘Yes I Can’.”Through some frantic work, Phish’s accountant was able to muster up the $600,000 to reserve the gig with only two hours to spare. According to Popper, he never told the band who kept sending their accountant all the strippers, so they found out the news along with the rest of the memoir’s readers in 2016.You can grab a copy of Suck and Blow: And Other Stories I’m Not Supposed To Tell today to hear more fantastic stories from John Popper’s career.

What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Top Stories Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation And no running back in the Cardinals corral holds upbetter in blitz pickup.This is where Sherman’s role might really expand,heralding a new trend inthe critical confines of third-down in the NFL. TheCardinals are usingAnthony Sherman as a third down back. What? Shotgun? Four-wides? Third & obvious?Yes.Traditionally, third down backs looked more like LaRodStephens-Howling than Anthony Sherman. Third down backshave been more of a receiver coming out of the backfieldthan a runner — and certainly didn’t look like Sherman!But because of complex blitz packages and fire zones, theNFL may be looking to super-size the position. Teams mayneed a third down back that can hold up in protection,while doing all the things a traditional third down backhas done in the past. LaRod Stephens-Howling — the Hyphen — will still get themajority of reps on third & obvious, but Anthony Shermanand the Arizona Cardinals may have another option onthird-down: Tank Personnel. In addition, a fullback must have command ofprotection schemes, be able to adjust in an instant towhat the OL is doing while keeping his eyes open at alltimes.Like receivers, Sherman needs to understand routecombinations and where hebelongs in those combinations, when he might be the hot-receiver and how hisroute impacts a given play. And it’s not justunderstanding these componentsand knowing what to do and making theadjustments in a split-second, it’s also about beingcapable of successfully executing your assignment as acrash-test-dummy. Anthony Sherman does all of these things very well. Sowell the Cardinals might be expanding his role in 2012. The Cardinals may use more two-back personnel groups, likeRegular (2-Backs, 2-WRs, 1-TE), to move the ball thisseason. Regular used to be the base personnel group of theNFL. That is no longer the case, but it might be making acomeback and Anthony Sherman is in the middle of thatmaelstrom. The Cardinals ran the ball better out ofregular than any other grouping and used the talents ofSherman well. Sherman is an excellent lead-blocker,catches the ball out of the backfield and can run the ballwell enough to convert short-yardage and goal-lineopportunities. 0 Comments Share There’s something very cool about having a fullback on afootball team. The Cardinals have Anthony Sherman; he’s arolling boulder with ears…and a brain. In the truest sense of the word, “fullback,” guys likeSherman have got know so much and then be capable ofexecuting that knowledge. Other than the QB, nobody on theoffense needs to understand more about said offense as thefullback. Like an offensive-lineman, Sherman needs tounderstand defensive fronts and how those defensive frontschange his run-blocking assignments and be able to adjuston the fly.
