Well, Johnny can dance and Johnny can love
Johnny can push and Johnny can shove
Johnny can hang out; Johnny can talk tough
Johnny can get down and Johnny can throw up
But Johnny can't read
Summer is over and he's gone to seed


- "Johnny Can't Read" by Don Henley
I wondered if I'd be the only one to remember this song.

We can read if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
'Cause your friends don't read
And if they don't read
Well, they're no friends of mine

...

And say, we can read, we can read
Everything's out of control
We can read, we can read
They're doing it from pole to pole
We can read, we can read
Everybody look at your hands
We can read, we can read
Everybody's taking the chance
Safety read
Oh well, the safety read
Ah yes, the safety read

We can read if we want to
We've got all your life and mine
As long as we abuse it, never gonna lose it
Everything'll work out right

I say, we can read if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
Because your friends don't read
And if they don't read
Well, they're no friends of mine

I say, we can read, we can read
Everything's out of control
We can read, we can read
We're doing it from pole to pole
We can read, we can read
Everybody look at your hands
We can read, we can read
Everybody's taking the chance

Oh well, the safety read
Ah yes, the safety read
Oh well, the safety read
Oh well, the safety read
Oh yes, the safety read
Oh, the safety read, yeah
Well, it's the safety read
It's the safety read
Well, it's the safety read
Oh, it's the safety read
Oh, it's the safety read
Oh, it's the safety read

I am a big sports fan.
I am a big soccer fan.
I am half-Brazilian.

I can't imagine there has ever been a more wheelhouse FJ for me.
I am also a big sports fan.

EXCEPT for soccer. Hate the game.
No South American genes in me at all, either.

However, J! asked one of the few bits of trivia I know about team jogging, errrr, soccer.

Good enough...
Not a fan, either. But the game does give us stories like this.

That could have been in the "Ooo, Sorry" category from Friday... I bet the guy was p***ed off about it. :)

I will posit that one of the clues was not properly written. An echo is a bit of sound that returns to the originator, not to the listener.

You go, Mackenzie!
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

TIL that only the originator of a sound can hear its echo
