Battle of the Bands: Eight Miles High

 David Crosby passed away earlier this year. I thought I would pay tribute to him with a song like I did Jeff Beck last go around. A song from Crosby, Stills and Nash would make sense, but I thought I would go farther back to The Byrds. A group Cros founded and pick a song he co-wrote.

The Byrds "Eight Miles High"

Contender One: Roxy Music

Contender Two: Tom Petty &The Heartbreakers

Tell me who you like best in the comments Roxy Music or Tom Petty and I will close the polls around the 8th and announce a winner.

R.I.P Ted Lerner

 Real estate tycoon and the principal owner of the Washington Nationals baseball team passed away at the age of 97. He was a founder in Lerner Enterprises which is the largest landowner in the Washington DC area. Forbes named him the richest man in Maryland in 2015. His family currently owns the Nationals but from 2006 when they arrived in Washington through 2018 Ted Lerner was the principal owner of the team. In a lot of ways, the man responsible for bringing baseball back to the Nation's Capital.

He won the Power of Baseball Award in 2022...

The world lost a wealthy, successful businessman. A person who bought baseball back to a city providing joy for thousands of fans. He gave back. He will be missed by his family and friends.
