Sky by Joshua Radin (3). First allow me to clarify that this is the new version of the much anticipated new album by Joshua Radin. Yes, I bought the whole CD even though I already owned a few of the previously released tracks. Let's move on. I am not sure which version I like better. The fact is that Joshua could be singing about worms and it would still sound sexy because he has an amazing voice. I am not sure what about this song makes me love it so much but I do. There is one line that always gets me every time I hear it...and it is my pick for the Best Line: "Sometimes I forget to love you like I should but I'd never leave you, no I never would." As difficult as it is to be patient, I know in my heart that I am not going anywhere.
Got To Give It Up by Marvin Gaye (58). This is one of my favorite tunes to dance do while trying to accomplish another task. I think that it is because it doesn't make you want to dance around all crazy but at the same time, you cannot stand still whenever it comes on. It makes you groove just a little bit and sing in a higher pitch than anyone ever should. This makes it a great song for dancing to in the kitchen while cooking dinner which I did tonight in spite of my strong desire to get takeout. Best Line. "Now I've got myself together baby and I'm havin' a ball."
So in spite of the pleas to stop talking baseball...I am not going to. In fact...I am going to relish every last moment of the Yankee season before fully immersing myself in football season. So let's end with a few of my current thoughts on baseball at the moment.
- Good for Joe Girardi for pulling Cano yesterday. He is not that great that he should be allowed to think that he can pull that kind of shit on the field. Someone needs to give him a wake up call or he could go down the same path that got Manny Ramirez. Speaking of Manny...
- Clearly my hatred for the guy was due to the jersey that he wore. I wouldn't say that I am fond of him now...but I don't want to throw things at the TV when I see him. Though I know that it is highly unlikely...I would find great pleasure in seeing him go further in the playoffs than the damn Red Sux. I can't wait to see them choke early in the post season.
- Speaking of choking...what in the hell happened to the Devil Rays. The town of Tampa should be threatening to tear down the damn stadium. How can a time spend so long in 1st place and now be at risk at not winning the division? They deserve to give up the divisional title with the way that they have been playing over the past couple of weeks...even if it is to the damn Red Sux. It pisses me off...if only because I really don't want to see the Red Sux win it again this year and the damn Devil Rays are handing it to them.
- In effort to not close out the blog in a bad mood after that rant...let's end with Joba. Sure we only had him for one inning tonight but it was enough. I will be the 1st to admit that he still doesn't look completely at ease on the mount...but it is not his fault. I have no doubts that he is going to dominate the mount next season when he is 100% healthy. I hate that they are handling him with kid gloves but now that it will be worth it in the end when we get season after season of him being the star of the Yankee pitching rotation.
