            • Got me an 8 on that one, and a 6 for when he played between Dead sets, or should that be a 6.5?

                I will have to send your query to our esteemed (or is it steamed?) panel of stoners, slackers and ne'er do wells for a ruling.

                    Well, the Dead are a favorite of Threadheads and Threadheads buy raffle tickets....so I'm guessing yes.

                      Real Deadheads get theirs for face or below.

                      On the other hand, Brother Luke is probably trying to flog his raffle tix for twice face, as we speak...

                              And this makes me even happier:

                              "The pay-per-view event will be hosted by CNBC reporter Steve Liesman and feature special guest host Bill Walton, a Basketball Hall of Famer and perhaps the group's most famous Deadhead."

                              For my money, one of the greatest sources of unintentional comedy on the planet.

                                taking the role perfected by Ken Kesey......Gotta wonder if he is going to use a bunch of basketball references when he does the FTW shows?
