Unfortunately, luck wasn’t on my side last Wednesday, as I got 0/2 match predictions and only 3/8 or 37.5% of game predictions correct. Hopefully I can turn things around for the semifinals!
Wednesday night, I will be seeing Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler at the Barclays Center. Here’s a video of a rendition of “Things Have Changed” that they performed a few months ago in Rome!
