Christmas Idea

I have been involved with the same fantasy baseball league for about 18 years. Most of us are really good friends. One year one of the guys put together a CD for everyone in the league. It wasn’t just a bunch of songs that he liked. Each song on the CD was dedicated to each team in the league. So there was hidden meaning to each song. One guy’s team was the doormat of the league; his track was U Can't Touch This. The guy who made the CD burned Sinatra for his team, My Way. It was really fun to tease another manager about what song his team got. I enjoyed that CD for a long time. It was a great gift.

I thought I would share that as a Christmas idea for my blogging friends that stop by and leave nice comments. With all the downloadable music that is available, it is probably an easy thing to do. Most bloggers hang out in groups. Why not make a CD with each track dedicated to a blogger? Here is an example from my PPE list. It should be playing on the player right now.

Mocha Momma-Black Coffee Inn Bed
Queen Of Disfunction-Superfreak

Here are some other tracks that would be on my CD.

Hyperbolic Hermitage- Renegades of Funk (Rage Against The Machine). I’m not going to let her librarian persona fool me. I’m sure she is a renegade of the atomic age.

Long Drives To Nowhere- Nowhere Road (Fastball). How do you get to Nowhere? Nowhere Road.

Rantings of a Crazy Woman- Pump It Up (Elvis Costello). Kristi stopped breast feeding this week.

Seeking Camelot- I’ve Done Everything For You (Rick Springfield). G was in love with Dr. Noah Drake back in the 80’s, probably still is.

White Hot Magik- Never There (Cake). What the hell Nora, where have you been?

This Side of Patty O- Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad (Meatloaf). Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics.

That IS eerie, Tom!!! I loved that song!!! Can still sing along with it on the fact, it's playing in my head right now. You're a hoot! Hope you had a great weekend!!! :o)

OMG, your pick for Rantings of a Crazy Woman had me laughing out loud! Get ibuprofen and ice packs to that woman stat!

What a great idea though, and funny. Because you know, any list that includes Cake is kick ass.

P.S. - I've never received such a compliment as my pick either. (voice of Elvis) Thank ya, thank ya very much.

Haha, that is hysterical. It's true too, I think any fan would take two out of three winning teams. I've done fantasy baseball for two years now, and I have yet to get that elusive first-place finish. I snatched a third-place trophy last year on the last day, and I was satisfied. I got third place again this year, but it kinda sucked because I had been in first place for almost a month before.

You know with the whole Santana thing, I can just picture how loud the Royals and Rays fans will be screaming if the Sox get him. I think I'd honestly like best if Santana stayed in Minnesota though because I don't want to see that doofus in Hank Steinbrenner getting him, and if the Sox get him and sign him to a gigantic extension, you might piss off Beckett. And then I don't want to lose Ellsbury either. I'm a little surprised the Mets haven't shown more interest.

Great idea you have here, Tom!

I am going to have to check out that song. Where am I? Where am I? I don't know, some days I think I may have just lost that blogging feeling. ;)
