One more big win, and these Yankees are World Series-bound…but the ‘Stros will play the next two games here at home, with game six Friday night at Minute Maid Park.

**Thrillist.com has a list of ‘The Best Band from Every State,’ and naturally, there’s bound to be a LOT of controversy over it . . . based on individual taste, as well as debates over which states can claim which bands.

As for the rules, the site says, quote, “The band must have been formed in or primarily based in the state . . . lots of groups MOVE to Los Angeles, Nashville, or New York City after scoring a record deal, but they’re not from those cities . . .

“Only groups, not individual artists, are considered. This admittedly skews the list away from hip-hop and country.”

And, quote, “These are not simply OUR favorite bands from every state . . . we considered . . . historical significance, influence, popularity, and ‘quality.'”

Here are a few of the best ones:

1. Alaska: Portugal. The Man
2. California: The Beach Boys
3. Florida: Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers
4. Georgia: Outkast
5. Illinois: Earth, Wind & Fire
6. Indiana: Jackson 5

They were actually seen there TWICE in the span of just a couple days, and witnesses to each encounter said they were definitely acting like they were on a date.

**People have strong opinions about celebrities and their hair, but this is a little ridiculous. Jessica Simpson’s Tuesday, October 17, Instagram post, where she is seen wearing pigtails caused quite a stir.

The image, captioned “Channeling my inner school girl,” has received more than 600 comments so far, but no one seems to be digging her ‘do, and have no problem telling Jessica. “Pigtails? Not flattering at all. Maybe if you were 2 lol,” commented one person. Added another: Pigtails Pigtails 👎.” A third dubbed the look “not age appropriate,” while a fourth wrote: “As a fellow 37-year-old, I’m not digging the pigtails, but you slay everything else! :)”

The feedback wasn’t all negative, however. As one woman wrote: “Gorgeous as ever.”
