Soul Glo, coming to Miller Park?
So, I went to the White Sox game tonight (slobber-knocker by the way) and was very excited to see Ken Griffey Jr. in person. I think the last time I saw him play in person the Brewers were in the AL and they were playing the Mariners on a Turn Back the Clock Night at County Stadium. I had this friend who wore his Mariners Griffey jersey religiously... what a gay-rod.
Anyway, so Griffey comes up to bat and his batting music is the Soul Glo song from Coming to America... classic. I had an awkward moment when I realized that I got excited and identified the Soul Glo music prior to Beth's date who was sitting next to me (yes, he was black. Jamaican black, not African-American black but still an odd moment). Here's a link http://www.imeem.com/people/hC7Qw//music/1q8YcCut/soul_glo/ for those of you unfamiliar with the Soul Glo.
At the end of the day, awkwardness aside, I'd really like to see a Brewer have this song as their batting music. So I'm running through the list of... um, not to be racist... "playas"... and nobody is Soul Glo worthy. The only person I can think of is Gagne with his nappy-pachouli-smelling-Canadian-hair. I've had a few beers at this point but the thought of him coming out of the bullpen to the Soul Glo song just makes me giggle uncontrollably.
