Entrance music has quickly become a fan favorite at ballparks across the country. Players expressing themselves through song as they march to home plate is a neat little sideshow that left me thoroughly entertained this weekend during the Yankees-White Sox series. So much so, that I had to bring the old video camera out to U.S. Cellular yesterday to capture, what I believe, is the greatest and funniest entrance song there is. The award goes to Mr. Gordon Beckham who has chose "Your Love" by The Outfield. The song debuted on the music charts in 1985...Beckham was BORN in 1986. I don't know what's funnier...the southside Sox fans belting out the words (that they know by heart, btw) to the song or 3K looking up to the sky, smile on his face, as he lip syncs the words with a fondness I have never seen before in my life (part of his whole man crush, which we'll get to in the comments section). The best part is, the White Sox use ANY opportunity to play that song while Beckham is up to bat. Beckham hit two doubles yesterday, and yes, they played the song after both doubles. Let's think about this for a second, they play the song as he walks to the plate, he hits a double, and as he's standing on second, they play it again. It's like groundhog day....Beckahm.....I don't want to lose your love....toniiiiiiight.....fans singing, 3K fawning like a love struck schoolgirl. Beckham, I don't want to lose your love....toniiiiight....fans singing....more fawning from 3K. It's rapidly turning into a cult classic on the Southside and I've gotta be honest with you, I've been singing that damn song ever since Saturday. Now everybody, sing with me!!!!!!!!....JOSIE'S ON A VACATION FAR AWAY.....COME AROUND AND TALK IT OVER....SO MANY THINGS THAT I WANNA SAY....YOU KNOW I LIKE MY GIRLS A LITTLE BIT OLDER..I DON'T WANNA LOSE YOUR LOVE...TONIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT!!!!!!!!
Another big win by the Gorilla's as they try to get out of the cellar. Will be interesting to see how they fare this week. Tough loss for Rocky Mike, gonna slip in the power rankings.
Not even Gordon Beckham could have saved 3K from this whooping. Not a bad performace, but T-Dub's staff and speed carried the day.
A great contest all around. Both teams played at a very high level, and that showed with the final score. Hackman's squad was just a little more powerful this week.
I wonder what New Linc's reaction was when The Ger handed his ass to him on a platter?
Clark & Addison-1
Probably was the same reaction his brother had, tough week for The Brothers McCreery.
Was great to see Fenway Ed out this weekend, despite his feeble attempts to move some of his bushers. Great win, still interested in Choo, call me.
