Holliday's Departure Has Its Benefits


In the spirit of keeping a positive outlook in the aftermath of the Holliday trade, I want to point out a glaring silver lining. Matty always had the WORST fucking at-bat songs imaginable. This is especially notable in a lineup filled with the likes of Nickleback, Staind, and nameless country pop songs. It was so bad and tame it made Spilly's Gwen Stafani song from 2007 sound like Black Flag. Whatever that Creed/ex-Creed/Creed-clone music was that Matty had pumping through the PA at Coors 4-5 times a home game was enough to put a slight damper on any otherwise perfect day at the ball park. As ST once pondered, can you imagine how horrible it would be to have to sit shotgun on a long road trip with Matty driving and in complete control of the stereo the entire trip. If there is such a place as hell, that could be a decent approximation of what it will be like.

So, while we'll miss your offensive production Matty, the crew at BSB breathes a sigh of relief knowing that your music selections are now part of a bygone era.

I think that one of the Rockies should man up and make Til Tuesday's "Voices Carry" their coming to the plate song.

Especially if it's Til Tuesday's Boston brethern Gang Green's version of that song. Or just go with Skate to Hell.

I don't remember this being a problem with the likes of Dante, Big Cat, or Walker...

Maybe the Monforts have somthing planned after all...








.... no, they're just dumb-asses who don't give a shit about the fans.

Hey, if it's going to be a Gang Green song, I vote for "Alcohol".

TroutDog said...

Was Alcohol the A side or B side of that classic 7"? Can't help but notice talking shit about Boston on KTH, but giving props to the 80's music scene on BSB.

TroutDog said...

And your point is well taken, DT. The Bombers knew how to select tolerable songs that are widely recognized. Even a few years back, the songs seemed to be better across the board. Someone has to take a stand. Good job O'Dowd/Monforts.

Sonic Tooth said...

While I'm too lazy to pull out the correct 7" box, I'm pretty sure that Skate to Hell was the A-side and Alcohol was the flip. On Taang!

TroutDog said...

That was my recollection too. Both were A-sides in my book.

Sonic Tooth said...

Boom. Ass-felt to Giants.

TroutDog said...

I personally am dissappointed Assfelt won't be a Rockie in the 2009 season and a heckling fixture this season. At least we see the Giants a lot. I missed Assfelt last year.
