Slow News Day Tuesday: The Major League Baseball Edition

New, 71 comments

Welcome to the second edition of Slow News Day Tuesday, the counterpart to Free Form Friday that attempts to address offseason boredom in the interminable final month before kickoff. As always, this feature will be discontinued immediately upon (a) the occurrence or reporting of the inevitable offseason disaster on a Tuesday, or (b) the start of college football season. Please let it be (b), please let it be (b). . . .

Although I thought about asking whether you’d allow yourself to be strip-searched for a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich and a ticket to a college football game, here is the scenario instead: you’re about to take an at-bat in a major league baseball game. It can be for any team you like, in any situation you prefer, but you’re playing at home. Your name is called over the public address system, and you begin walking from the on-deck circle to the batter’s box as the crowd cheers.

What’s your walk-up music?

For me, the choice is easy: Warren Zevon’s "Lawyers, Guns, and Money." What song would you choose, and why? Let us know in the comments below.

Go ‘Dawgs!
