History is still the future

I went to the Rays-Yankees game last night hoping Derek Jeter would go 4-for-5 and break Lou Gehrig’s all-time franchise hit record. After he struck out his first three times at the plate, I knew the chances of anything happening were slim and none, and slim just went on vacation.

Such is life. I did see David Wells perfect game in person, so I have that going for me, which is nice. It’s not like receiving total consciousness on my deathbed, but still, nice.

Anyway, as the players kept coming up and I kept hearing their musical selections, it got me to thinking. What song would I come up to if I was a Major League player? I thought for a second and then it hit me:

Ah, AB Logic’s Hitman. It may be a little brash, or egotistical, like I am going to get a hit everytime I go to the plate, but isn’t that the idea?

Now I want to know what song you would come out to if you were striding to the plate at Yankee Stadium. I will mention the best responses in the “Off the Wall” podcast tomorrow!


I would do who let the dogs out

Boom by P.O.D.

Dean Martin: “Mambo Italiano”

If I were Derek Jeter right now it would probably be “Bridge of Sighs” by Robin Trower.. : (

Journey – Don’t Stop believing

TobyMac, “The Slam”

Daughtry, Who says you can’t go home.

I mean home plate, of course.

How bout some love for a classic?

“Bananaphone” by Raffi.

The pitcher would be laughing too hard to strike me out.

How about “Beautiful Dreamer…?”

Has anyone seen the video “Hey Jeter” on YouTube? check it out..he should choose that song.

I’d come strutting out to ‘Straight Cold Player’ by Lenny Kravitz. P.S. – My NBA theme song would be ‘Mr. Downtown’ by Freddy Fredrickson (from that movie ‘That Thing You Do’), but obviously I’d have to be good at 3-pointers.

Oops, messed up. “Who says you can’t go home” is Bon Jovi (still a good song). Daughtry’s song is called “Home” (I’m going home…). Both are good batting songs.
