EJ Busts a Rap

Yo!

I bust a phat rap cause I’m a fat cat–okay, I’m not saying that. …I’m just, I refuse to say that. Let’s try this again. 1… 2… 3…

Yo,

The Yankees beat the Blue Jays and upset the Doc

Longoria in Tampa gave the Red Sox a shock

We got some breathing room when Evan hit one out

A walk-off blast to left made the Red Sox pout

1 and a half games is a nice improvement

Than the half game of work room we were usin’

Andy Pettitte scuffled at the end but

He got a W for the pinstriped men

Damon and Tex went back to back

The main component of New York’s offensive attack

Matsui gave us breathing room by drilling one to center

And when Mo got the final out I sang like Eddie Vedder

I guess, it’s just, a day in the life

Of a Yanks fan when the AL East is alright

It’s tight, the feeling of being in first place

Now if only we could win one on Virginia’s birt–no. I’m not saying that…

You don’t get that oppurtunity in baseball’s rat race

Meanwhile, the Mets’ Castillo made us scratch our noggins

He got more NY headlines than Igawa’s joggin’

When he took a fall and sprained his ankle

You look at that and it’s only a sample

Of the sheer bad luck the Mets have come across

Every day there’s an injury another player lost

So nowadays baseball fans wonder “Who’s next?”

Well today Niese is the newest victim of the hex

Yeah… that’s it… no more rapping…

The Song of the Day is a very touching, sensitive war-themed song and I think you all should hear it, it’s not a heavy rock song or a catchy rap song, it’s an acoustic song by a band I really like. The song is called Hero of War by Rise Against

Stay positive, Yankee fans.

An Interesting Question…

I’ve always wondered this about people. I’ve asked my brother, my dad. It’s a really interesting, fun question in my opinion. What is this question? Here, I’ll ask you: what song would you want to be your entrance music if you were a hitter? I know, I didn’t word that perfectly.

A lot of active major league baseball players have entrance music. Alex Rodriguez uses “This Is Why I’m Hot” by Mims when he steps to the plate. Evan Longoria comes into the opening strings of a fantastic song, “Down and Out” by Tantric. Carlos Beltran enters to “El Esta Aqui” by David Y. Abraham. You get the picture.

As for me, the songs vary. They vary from the hot and heavy guitar riffs of Becoming the Bull by Atreyu (don’t mind the video) and Scream by Avenged Sevenfold to the funky, catchy hip hop songs that aren’t cruddy like most of today’s music, like Check the Rhime by A Tribe Called Quest or High Road by Fort Minor (do not mind the video or the song at the beginning, song starts with piano loop).

A Tribe Called Quest

So, reader, what would your entrance music be as a hitter? Or even as a closer? That counts even our female readers– looking at you, Julia– because they like music too. It’s something that I really want to know, so I’d appreciate finding out. This is one of the ways where two of the most beautiful things in life– baseball and music– are combined, and that’s why I’m so fascinated by it. Also, it’s awesome to get the crowd pumped up with a really energetic song.

Stay positive, Yankee fans.
