Of course, the roughly 1,200 fans who stood in a blocks-long line outside the East Colfax Avenue store to pick up their signed copies of “Born to Run” and get a photo snapped with Springsteen have not forgotten any iteration of the man known as the Boss.
“He talks to all of us. He carries so much energy and passes it on to people.
An Amazon shopper named Leah reviewed a pink MoMoCity iPhone 7 case Sept. 30, two weeks after the phone went on sale.
