I’d wax poetic about that candle-burning-brightly-but-not-lasting-long thing, but I can’t remember the quote exactly. Meh, that was inspiring enough, right?

Moving to the bottom five, Cowboys fans are looking to see those last few games, as the Boys have a chance to reach the postseason. They’re followed by Bon Jovi, who will need to bring their a-game if they plan to crack the top 3. Like the other contenders, Bon Jovi will be on the road this spring, touring in support of their to-be-released album, What About Now.
Luke Bryan rounds things out on the concert side, while the Outback Bowl squeezes in an appearance for the season, and the Orange Bowl drops two spots to last place this week.
