U2 & GMC

A simple challenge is completed thanks to one of the world's greatest bands!

In light of the U2 concert tonight at Scott Stadium, Cheryn Stone said that I couldn't make a U2 reference during each of my weather hits this morning during Good Morning Charlottesville. Since I'm always up for a challenge, I set to work looking through my albums trying to prove her wrong. I was able to do it, but the more fun part was I got to integrate two of my true loves – music and weather – together. How can one argue with that?



Here are the references made throughout GMC, in no particular order. Did you catch all 25 of them?

There's no way I could ever pass up a legendary band like U2, so I ask for forgiveness in advance if I seem a little tired tomorrow morning on GMC. Hopefully you understand...

Three, two, one, fade out-
