In honor of Opening Day fast approaching, here is R.A. Dickey's Knuckler in slow-mo. God I love Baseball.

Aah, R.A. Dickey ... another great player transaction by Doug Melvin (Brewers released him several years ago).

Yeah, I'm still mad about the Yucky Barfancrap re-signing.

At least it's finally baseball season.

Nice shot.

I've got my game day audio app on the ipad, and am ready to go.

This year I may follow the cubs more,than the brewers. I love the curse aspect, and my grandfather supported the cubs, as I think there was no Wisconsin team when he became a fan.

And I love wrigley field.

I would be even happier if UW would,have a team again, disgraceful being a big ten university with no baseball team.

Better go to a game there while you still have a chance.

My question is, why is Terry Cashman's "Talkin' Baseball" such a shitty song?

Because singing about baseball is like dancing about architecture?

Are you saying that in a theoretical universe in which singing about baseball is NOT like dancing about architecture, "Talkin' Baseball" isn't a shitty song? I think its failures are deeper than that.

What's missing, among other things, is a groove. Good baseball games have a groove. So does big band leader Les Brown's excellent baseball song "Joltin' Joe Dimaggio."

Not to mention Eddie Vedder's "Someday We'll Go All the Way."

If you guys wanna talk baseball songs, I'm all in. (Baseball? Not so much.)

You might want to check out "The Baseball Project", with Scott Macaughy (Young Fresh Fellows / Minus 5), Steve Wynn, Peter Buck and, er, a drummer lady who sings awesome harmony. They have a few albums out, all with great baseball nerd lyrics. They've been through town a few times and put on a great show.

I'm gonna write a song about how Ron Roenicke needs to be fired immediately for his inability to manage a bullpen.
