On yesterday's show the fabulous Liz Clarke made a great comment (I'm not even sure any of the gang actually heard her) about the fact that she only comes to the show for Bruce and the bagels. I just had to...


Born to Run, Born to Run
I'm going zoom zoom down the Pike.
Not even stopping for a quick morning bite.
Born to Run - hummin' its tune.
Fists a bang bang bangin' on my dash like Boom.
But the chick chair's calling me,
I can't be late.
Don't want Harry's fate to be my fate.
My stomach's growlin' cuz it's not fed
But that's just fine cuz I know Nigel made that stop instead!

I show up for Bruce and bagels
I get both don't even need to finagle.
They play me Bruce and feed me bagels,
even like it when I breathe that sigh.
So I show up for Bruce and bagels.
Munchin' on Rye while talkin' Skins/Eagles.
I'd yak all day for Bruce and bagels, yeah
I'll say anything that you like.
Even give you that sigh, yeah yeah!

*A parody of "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by Wham!

Born to Run for Jitterbug cracked me up. Great "sigh" vocal at the end as well. I'm joining your comment bomb clique btw... although there's really no way I will completely catch up on two weeks so this is a great one to end on for now. :)

Odds are with Arrieta. The only one that can hit him is McCutchen and I don't think he's allowed to bat more than once every nine at bats. it's absurd to think the Cardinals have to play one of these teams in the 1st round. congrats on having the best record in baseball, St Louis. anyone wanna see third prize?

Thanks for the sweet comments, y'all. I appreciate it. Rob: Tonight, I'm an Astros fan. Tomorrow night and always, I'm a Cubs fan. I hope you'll forgive me. The Pirates will probably win anyway.
