Take me out to the ballgame (but I wish it were the Giants)

Just a quick note as I dash out the door on this (rainy) Friday afternoon to go potentially freeze my butt off at a Rockies game up in Denver with my sister tonight. I’ve been looking for a reason to post up this mp3 of Eddie Vedder singing the old baseball classic, and jumped for joy when I realized today was the day:

Take Me Out To The Ballgame” – Eddie Vedder
From 5-14-06
with a special Mother’s Day dedication for the mamas
(Link updated 9-26)

I really want to root, root, root for the home team now that I have relocated to Colorado, but I secretly miss the San Francisco Giants like nobody’s business. Whether it was the old cheapie bleacher seats my family used to regularly occupy when they played at Candlestick Park, or the beautiful sunny days spent at the new Pac Bell Park with some garlic fries, a cold beer, and the view of the Bay, all is well in my world when I am rooting for *my* home team.

Sigh.

  • I left my heart in San Francisco.

    Yay, for the Giants! I was born in San Francisco, but I’m currently residing in Stockton. Luckily, I’m not terribly far away from the Bay Area!

  • Let’s go Yankees…
    Hey, I went to many-o-games in the 80′s were the Yankees were just bad. I am no fair weather fan at all…
    Nothing like watching a game live.
    I was lucky enogh to catch a playoff game in Arizona a few years ago…NICE ball park!!

    Pick up GREG GRAFFIN’s (Bad Religion) new solo cd yet??
    “Cold as Clay”. Really good. I would never guess this type of music from him.

    Peace.

  • I left my steroids in San Francisco.

    What a pitiful route the team has gone. Once a storied franchise, now a joke for the rest of the league. (The undying support the fans give for Barroid doesn’t help the image any better.)

  • I don’t give Barry any kind of undying support, I don’t care much for him. But when you’ve grown up loving a team, I think you kind of see that the team is bigger than the individual players that come and go.

  • Aww, too bad the Giants got eliminated from the playoffs yesterday.

    I’m just teasing you since my team (Braves)got eliminated too.

  • Heather – could you repost Take Me Out …? The yousendit link reached the hit limit.

    Thanks.

  • Merkin Man, teasing accepted, although I am still defiantly wearing my Giants tanktop today in honor. And yes, the Rockies defeated your boys, the Braves, last week at the game I was at. So we can commisserate together.

    Ah baseball, you heartbreaking SOB you.

    Dan, I reupped the link for you.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
