Trivial Trivia and Today’s Song

Leave it to me to come up with something like trivial trivia… but seriously, today is Greg Maddux's birthday, lovingly referred to as Pinstripe by my best friend and I. Later, he became the Traitor, but that's something else totally. LOL Ah, childhood love scorned is a marvelous thing…

So, in that light, I thought John Fogerty's "Centerfield" would be a good song of the day for today… Enjoy!


Well, beat the drum and hold the phone - the sun came out today!
We're born again, there's new grass on the field.
A-roundin' third, and headed for home, it's a brown-eyed handsome man;
Anyone can understand the way I feel.

Oh, put me in, Coach - I'm ready to play today;
Put me in, Coach - I'm ready to play today;
Look at me, I can be Centerfield.

Well, I spent some time in the Mudville Nine, watchin' it from the bench;
You know I took some lumps when the Mighty Casey struck out.
So Say Hey Willie, tell Ty Cobb and Joe DiMaggio;
Don't say "it ain't so", you know the time is now.


Yeah! I got it, I got it!

Got a beat-up glove, a homemade bat, and brand-new pair of shoes;
You know I think it's time to give this game a ride.
Just to hit the ball and touch 'em all - a moment in the sun;
(pop) It's gone and you can tell that one goodbye!

[Chorus x2]

It's a beautiful day for a ballgame. Let's play two! ~ Ernie Banks, Mr. Cub, eternally #14
