Obviously, those are two of the biggest rivals to the Philadelphia 76ers, so I wanted to get a feel for what to expect when we see either or both of those two teams in the playoffs.
And as much as it pains me to say it, it was also going to be a really good basketball game because both of those teams are in the upper echelon of the NBA, so I wanted to watch just as a fan of the game.
Funnily enough, I was not the only person in the rock and roll universe to be enjoying the game!
Though, the other person had much better seats than I did last night!
While I was watching the game on TV from the comfort of my couch, I noticed that Sheryl Crow was sitting courtside with her son, Levi.
Apparently, her son is a huge fan of the Bucks, and mom is too!
When I saw her, I instantly thought of the time I interviewed her many years ago at the old WMMR studios at 5th and Market Street in Philly – I wrote about those studios last week if you want to check it out here!
This interview aired on my show called Planet M, which was an alt-rock specialty show I hosted from 10 p.m. until 12 a.m. on Saturday nights!
She was doing a media tour promoting her debut record titled, Tuesday Night Music Club.
This was all the way back in the fall of 1993 – almost 30 years ago!
What’s even better than Sheryl Crow stopping by to do an interview on your show?
Sheryl Crow stopping by to do an interview on your show with her dog!
She brought her mixed lab rescue dog named Scout!
Scout was a big hit to the entire staff, and Sheryl could not have been nicer to everybody!
By the way, a few years later, I actually adopted a lab mix dog from the Morris Animal Refuge and named her Scout!
Funny how things work!
Maybe, Sheryl will make the trip to Philadelphia to see the Bucks lose to the Sixers in the Eastern Conference Finals!
