NBA back to backs are nothing

I cringe sometimes at some of the back to back games that have teams catching overnight flights and settling into their hotels near dawn, but they don't have it so bad.

Last night I saw proto-punk/new wave/glam rockers the New York Dolls (including both of their living original members) at the Granada. Great show, a real slice of rock history, and as I've become really interested in the roots and early years of the punk and new wave movements this was a real treat.

But here's the thing - David Johansen pointed out that they were doing the second of their own back to back - Sunday in Dallas after Saturday in Buenos Aires! That's 5267 miles according to an online calculator, in any case that has to be a hellish flight. If only they had brought along Gabriela Sabatini, maybe a little nicer.

Anyway, I'll try to refrain from bitching about the Lakers some New Orleans-Minnesota back to back in the future.
