I've picked Tryin' To Get To Heaven several times in the wild card slot but this time I went with If You Ever Go To Houston. Whoops

Yeah that's gotta hurt. 20 pts every time it's played.
'Learning to Fly' becomes just a one-off 14 pts for a
'Non-Dylan Song Not On The List Played The First Time Live'.
More ERers should form teams c'mon y'all, still good gambler-ish fun

I agree with you, and I’m the one who creates the game. Admittedly I was short on time for this tour due to other obligations, but I still can’t believe I kept Summer Days in the Joker category and dropped Thunder down there. Planning this tour’s game just didn’t work well with my regular work schedule.

I like it when a song or two slip into the Joker section and end up being played a lot. A few pools back it was Scarlet Town, and I didn't catch it. The people who did were rewarded with great scores. This time around it's Summer Days and Thunder, either of which would make a great pick. And it's true, most people won't take the time to get all the way down to the S or T section, so it's kind of a test of who's paying attention.
I had Summer Days as my Joker for the summer tour because he's brought it back for summer tours before this year. I stuck with it for the fall because the new arrangement is so great, I had a feeling he'd keep it around. But there are never any guarantees, even in the era of "the set." That's what makes the game so much fun!
Thanks for your dedication in keeping it going, Mr. Jinx.

I can't believe I didn't see it there! I would have picked it.
I chose Gotta Serve Somebody, hoping he'd do a little Gospel thing since Mavis is the opener.

plus Honest with Me! - luckily no one can choose more than one. Based on the current leader's results, a combo of one of the jokers and September of my Years for 13 is the key so far. Zeppyfish picked it also
