Like many, my March Madness bracket is hanging on by a thread. My winner, Kentucky, went down tonight and my only hope lies in the Bears of Baylor. So, Baylor WIN!!!!!!! Well, that was unprofessional. I guess it is better to still have a hope. I know many whose Final Four picks have all been ousted from the NCAA Basketball Tournament. But, pick up your head and don’t be so crestfallen. Opening Day for all baseball teams is coming fast and I am ready for the Mets to begin. Nothing is better than the first pitch in April. This is one of the reasons why my favorite sports song of all time is baseball’s rock anthem (I guess it is not really an anthem) “Centerfield” by John Fogerty.
How can you not love John Fogerty’s baseball bat guitar. That is just awesome. The song is great too. It just gets you in the mood to get up and do something…preferably play baseball. Besides the fact that the song is synonymous with countless baseball movies and videos, it is also well-written and melodious. It is an effervescent, fun-loving song and people can’t get enough of its great beat and message. It is optimistic, inspiring and its melody provides listeners with visions of outfield grass, home run hitters, stolen bases and…you get the picture. Happy baseball everyone.
