Mr. Jones & Me

Pairs Well With… “Mr. Jones” by Counting Crows [wpdevart_youtube]c3Q_MSbmhA4[/wpdevart_youtube] Rolling on only four hours of sleep after a long (and winning) evening of football the night before, I boarded an early ass flight to Denver to see my favorite band: Counting Crows.  Choosing between two loves of my life, the Vikings (first home game at…
