Clarence Clemons, beloved member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, and accomplished sax player in his own right, died Saturday. He was 69. Among the best tributes to Clemons: ESPN talks about his college football career at Maryland State College (now University of Maryland Eastern Shore) and Superbowl half-time show appearance and the Washington Post's obituary makes mention of his ties to Virginia's Tidewater region and Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Guess we shouldn't be holding out hope for an Amy Winehouse U.S. tour: A European comeback show over the weekend was labeled "the worst in the history of Belgrade." If she ever makes it to town, Courtney Love's "worst show in the history of D.C." title is in jeopardy.

People who are home during the day may be interested in the results of the Daytime Emmy Awards.
