Mix in a few new ones between “Thank God I’m a Country Boy” and “Orioles Magic” this October.
1. My Morning Jacket – “Holdin On to Black Metal”
You may recognize it as the newest addition to Camden Yards’ mix of “O”-themed sound bites, a list which also includes snippets of “Icky Thump” and that creepy Wizard of Oz chant. Jim James, leader of the legendary Louisville band, also bears a pretty remarkable resemblance to Wild Bill Hagy.
Back with another guest post is Caps correspondent/DJ Brad Parker.
The trade deadline is a distant memory. Filip Forsberg is not coming to DC. Any significant changes the Caps make for the postseason (if we’re fortunate enough to make the playoffs) will not involve on-ice personnel. But that doesn’t mean it’s too late to do something that can have an impact.
It’s time for the Caps to get a new goal song. No, more than a goal song – an honest to God rally song. Something that makes the fans go nuts. Something we can play in our headphones all afternoon on game day. Something that tells others you’re a Caps fan.
The fact that we don’t already have the perfect song is not for a lack of trying. There have been tunes associated with the Caps before, but none stuck.
In the fourth or fifth grade I kept having the same argument with the same girl about Bon Jovi, which I was not a preteen fan of. That was a thing we did then, because I hadn’t yet understood the brilliance of “Bad Medicine.”
I’m fully aware that a post about JMU is only interesting to about three percent of you, and that a post about the Dukes band is only interesting to about one third of them, so here’s to the one percent. It’s a JMU drumline, featuring two guys playing drums UPSIDE DOWN (wait for it).
This ship sailed with Tampa Bay signing Vincent Jackson and the Redskins signing Pierre Garcon, obviously, but here’s video from Sunday of SOJA (Soldiers of Jah Army, bumbaclot) taking time out from their San Diego show to try and persuade V-Jax to come play for their hometown Redskins. RG3 references abound, as do some pretty amazing dreadlocks.
Programming Note: I’m saying this a lot lately, but posting is light around these parts right now. Sorry about that. We’ll be back to normal soon.
(Many thanks to reader Peter Stuart for the tip on this one.)
