Remember when we interviewed Zizzy Mane? Well here is all that work by the artist put into action in the above clip.
And this is the song that will play on the loud speakers as Jay Bruce walks up to the plate in 2010 at GABP.
If you like this song and want to own it, look no further:
So did any of you see the list of the Top 100 Players of the Decade compiled by Rob Neyer over at ESPN?
We’re just six short days away from the Opening Day festivities and five days from Opening Night this Sunday.

This team figures to be about as entertaining live as they are on paper; there aren’t a lot of reasons for fans to venture out to the park and watch them play. That’s what makes the arrival of Strasburg paramount for baseball in Washington. It will be a league-wide story each time he pitches this season, and it would be good for baseball if he could have a nice debut as a rookie.
Classic. Look at those little old ladies second guessing a rather business-like Piniella.
Quinones forte was being shitty. He never hit above .244 in his career. So I think it was okay of me even as a kid to get frustrated with him and wonder why the Reds seemingly gave away at-bats to him.
And THIS is why we miss 1990 folks. Back then, you could win World Series’ with guys like Luis Quinones on the roster and contributing. Those days are gone.

I know WWE gets a bad rap; and it’s honestly not that enjoyable anymore. It’s certainly not in the Golden years that I grew up watching in the late 80s an early 90s.
But tonight, one of the pieces of my childhood walks off into the sunset.
Shawn Michaels wrestled for the last time, as the Undertaker sent him into retirement remaining unbeated at the biggest pay per view of the year.
Nothing goes on forever.

The Braves have had big prospects before. Andruw Jones was twice the minor league player of the year, but he arrived in the middle of a season and joined a team coming off a World Series title. Chipper Jones was a big deal, but he likewise joined a team grown accustomed to winning. Jeff Francoeur was the hometown hero, the Golden Child, but he arrived in midyear to bolster a team working on its 14th consecutive division title. Heyward is different.
That’s why Jason Heyward is the grandaddy of them all. He’s the great Bobby Cox’s last blue chip prospect ever. He’s like the last Halas Bear–only from Atlanta where it’s warmer and there are even more hold-ups at gunpoint then in the ChiTown.
Seriously, as a fan of baseball; I’m excited about Jason Heyward and the 2010 Braves. Like; wish they were still on TBS every night to give me something to watch when the Reds are getting plowed excited.
As a baseball fan, I’d love to see the upstart Braves win the East this year and allow a couple of good old cowboys like Cox and Chipper Jones to ride off into the sunset like they rightfully should.
Hell, let’s not forget this team took a chance on Billy Wagner to come out and be their closer after everyone and their brother thought the guy was done. This is a more likable Braves team then back in the day when they were fielding Jeff Blauser and Terry Pendleton and they were on TBS 5 nights a week. How fucking sick did you get of Charlie Liebrant? And Don Sutton? Yup, me too.
But this Heyward kid could be really something. He’s a smart kid, flashy. He tweets. He can run, throw, and drop bombs. He’s got the build that once he learns the strike zone he could put up Ryan Howard numbers. If he does anything close to that this summer, Heyward-mania will ensue.
And if guys like Tommy Hanson can continue to develop and give this team some starting pitching depth behind Tim Hudson, Derek Lowe, and Jair Jurrjens; this team is going to be pretty good. They’re better than .500 for sure.
And let’s face it. There’d be worse things in the world then seeing this team win the Wild Card and giving Bobby Cox one more crack in the postseason wouldn’t there?
And then the real Philly fan in you comes out! You’ll cuss them, you’ll hate them, you’ll wish them death.
