Playlist of the Week: Airport Commuter 7

"It's only the second period and I'm up 12 to 2. Breakfasts come and go, Rene, but Hartford, "the Whale," they only beat Vancouver once, maybe twice in a lifetime."

This week's destination: Hartford and Storrs, Connecticut
Airport Code: BDL
Connecting City or Cities: Atlanta (ATL)

As a native Texan and Oklahoma citizen, you'd probably assume I have little to say about Connecticut.  Not altogether true.  This is my first actual visit there (not counting the time I once got SO lost after arriving in New York that I accidentally ended up in Connecticut), but here's what comes to mind when I think of the Constitution State:

1.  The quote from the photo caption above.  If you can name that movie, I love you more than I love others.
2.  The word "Connecticut" is very clearly cheating at Scrabble.
3.  Rebecca Lobo was a hot in her day.
4.  I feel like if I don't see something historical/colonial, I'm a patriotic failure or somesuch.
5.  After seeing that photo, I realize I'm overdue for a boat ride.
6.  I know it's June, but I still feel a little uneasy about not bringing a jacket with me.
7.  I think I'd feel like a big man if I publicly ridiculed whatever they think passes for "Mexican" food while I'm there.
8. Thinking of peppering strangers with Good Will Hunting references in my best "Southie" accent in a manner which makes people think that I think that this is a brand new movie and/or I have somehow mistaken Hartford for Boston.
9.  I don't have a ninth reason--this sentence is just filler.  But let's be honest (Lesbihonest), is Hartford really worthy of more than 8 reasons?

Music I will be listening to as I fly above your heads and sprint through America's airports that you should also consider filling your headspace with:
