Seventeen is the theme of the day for Jan. 26. It’s obvious. Seventeen days until the Feb. 12 opening ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics. The Games are a 17-day event. Therefore it’s a good time to rewind to the 1980s’ favourite rockabilly trio, the Stray Cats, and their hit video “Sexy and Seventeen.”
The Stray Cats are still going strong with Brian Setzer, Lee Rocker and Slim Jim Phantom.
Grab your rock and roll queen and cut the rug. Seventeen days to go.
