This morning on my way to work I was listening to my favorite radio station and the DJ's were talking about the Tigers "at bat" songs. All three DJs then said what their at bat songs would be if they were a Tiger. Of course, this got me thinking about what I would choose. So I spent the first couple hours of my morning listening to my ipod, trying to find the best song if I were a different person (a man who's good at baseball and is a professional player) and had to pick the perfect song. These are the top four I came up with:
Back in Black - ACDC
Tom Sawyer - Rush
E-Pro - Beck
Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
I decided E-Pro would be the best of the four but it was a tough call. (My day has obviously been really stressful.)
I'm really curious what the rest of you would pick. What's the song that gets you pumped and that would get the crowd going?
You don't know how hard it was for me to leave out songs from musicals from this list. But I wouldn't want the crowd turning on me so I stuck with these four.
Sidenote: I want to talk to the guy in charge of the music about NOT playing Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" because inevitably someone sitting by me says, "you know, there's really no such thing as 'south Detroit.'" Then I have to politely respond when in my head I'm thinking sarcastic thoughts about how I've heard that a million times.... You know, I just realized I should save this rant for my "I've got a lot of problems with you people" feature. More later.
In unrelated thoughts, this Sunday is Easter which means, besides the religious aspects which really are important to me, it is also the day of my family's Peep diorama competition. You guys, I never win this and it's starting to bug me. Not just because I want to win, but because the same two people win every year (my cousin and her husband) and it's time to knock them off their throne (very Eastery of me huh?).
I have no memory of my Peep diorama from last year (probably why I didn't win) but for 2012 I did an election themed diorama. Note the attention to detail (Obama is a chocolate Peep):
In 2011, I did a "Hide yo Peeps" diorama after the autotuned "Hide yo kids" hit. Unfortunately, I had to explain it to too many people. That was my downfall there and cost me a lot of votes.
I have a pretty good idea for this year having to do with Adele Dazheem but I'm afraid it'll fall into the same trap is the Hide yo Peeps debacle of '11. Everyone gets two votes including the kids and if the kids don't know what it is, you're done. Just pack your bags. You never had a chance. Maybe a Frozen theme?
What do you guys think? I need your help!
