Was listening to the "home run calls of the day" or some such nonsense on sports radio today. One of the calls was from Texas. Sammy Sosa hits one out, and over the PA at the stadium they play the theme from The Natural.
Now, the Rangers are 17 games out of first. Their magic number is like negative 14. Sammy Sosa has just hit a home run to put the Rangers up 3-0 in the first inning.
Is this really the time to cue up the song that might be the most dramatic melody in baseball?
And, more importantly...The Natural
? For Sammy Sosa? Come one, dude who chooses the music at Ameriquest Field in Arlington. There have to be better options.
