Buy Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Born to Run’ House for $350K!

This modest rancher in Long Branch, NJ, is the site of one of the most important acts of creation on this planet or any other: the writing of the Bruce Springsteen album Born to Run.

The screen door slams
Marys dress waves
Like a vision she dances across the porch
As the radio plays

This 828-square-foot, two-bedroom home may be the inspiration for the famous screen door, and the immortalized porch. There’s a fenced yard and patio (one’s personal Jungleland, if you will), and it’s 120 feet from the beach. The building’s lot is zoned commercial-residential, so it would be perfect for a Springsteen mini museum or a cafe with memorabilia. Broker Susan McLaughlin’s listing is uncharacteristically soulful: “Of course, we would love to see the house maintained as an important piece of rock & roll history.”

    I think ‘unnoticed’ may be the ceiling for Jordan this season and that’s not a bad thing. If he can go week to week without screwing up royally then this unit will be really solid if not spectacular all season due to the play-making skills of Ryans and Kendricks.

    Akeem Jordan has always been good against the run. Remember, the run defense improved last season when he was inserted as the starter at SAM. Don’t discount him just because he had one quiet game.

    the best think could happens to Kendricks was to be selected in the same year we finaly have a real MLB. He´s potential is unbelievable, and Ryans will help a lot his development. Huge exemple inside and outside the field. He will help the rookie get on top without losing focus and humility.

  • “Through two games, [Ryans] has five tackles for loss. In all of 2011, no Eagles linebacker had more than six.”

    That is a crazy statistic. Without Ryans, we’re still getting gashed by the run game I think. Great to have a real MIKE ‘backer, and even better to have a field general.

      I’m really glad the Ravens got away from the running game in the second half. Sure, the Eagles D started playing it a little better, but Rice was still tearing it up. I couldn’t believe it when they called a pass play on 3rd and 1 on one of the last drives. You have Ray Rice in your backfield, and you don’t trust him to get one yard? Reminds me of Andy’s play calling…

        Adjustments. Please give credit where credit is due. Juan made quality adjustments at half time and almost nullified Rice in the 2nd half. He did have carries, but they didn’t go anywhere

        • ohitsdom

          Just for you, I went back and looked at the play-by-play for the second half. In the 3rd quarter, only 3 rushes for Rice for 17 yards. In the 4th quarter, 4 rushes for only 4 yards. The Eagles D definitely stepped it up in the fourth, I’m not denying that. But the Ravens had terrible play calling, especially in the 3rd. If they kept running the ball, it would’ve kept the Eagles offense off the field and given their D some rest.

  • Just feels good as an Eagles fan to have a solid starting linebacker group. Feels different, but satisfying. But for some reason, the Cardinals may be a much tougher opponent than everyone is thinking, this one scares me a bit

    kendricks is the real deal… boykin and cox look good… best draft class in a loooong time!

    Brush – the Eagles Defense will face a huge dilemma this week, namely, “How do you tackle Kevin Kolb without giving him a concussion?!” You shouldn’t be scared that the Eagles will be beaten. You should just be scared for Kevin Kolb – he may be beaten to a pulp.
