But the song is one that makes you want to poke your ear drums with sharp knives?
That is my problem today. All because I heard this song on television this morning.
I'm assuming that most of you New Englanders (at least those of you in Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts) have heard it on the radio or seen the commercial.
I don't know where to even begin with why the song bothers me so much.
Maybe it's that the singer just sounds horribly off-key. Maybe it's that I'm so turned off by the commercial, what with the woman
Maybe it just offends me that Twin River markets itself as a "gaming" facility and not a casino. But to me, slots machines + restaurants + entertainment = a casino.
Mostly, though, I hate the dog racing.
It's just interesting to me that Twin River was originally called Lincoln Greyhound Park.
Then it was changed to just Lincoln Park. (But the greyhound racing was still a major draw.)
Now it's Twin River. Investors have poured hundreds of millions of dollars into making it the third-largest slot machine facility in the country. And the dog racing is spun to be part of the "entertainment."
So no, I won't be taking myself to the River, thankyouverymuch.
And the song on repeat in my head is only serving to further solidify that vow.
