This damn show theme has infected my head just like the show itself. A parody of Handsome Family's "Far From Any Road"

On the bleak horizon another season looms
And the Skins don’t have a draft pick till early in round two

Torie’s bringing in note cards about the Wizards game
Oh wait those are just flash cards to remember her kids names

When the last emails are read and Kevin has butchered the news
Its off to the refugee safeway, to pick up grapefruit juice.

I love this show (despite the final episode). This sounds great! Nice job on the guitar. Is this the one you were talking about sending me?

The playing and the singing sound tops- I'm impressed! Good to know that TD is still worth it.

The finale was not too bad Brad, and the build up is well worth the trip. Which bass notes do you mean the vocals or the guitar? They both sound pretty rough :).

Ha! Next thing you know Patrick will be complaining about not getting enough air time, or swag! I was really looking forward to this series until I heard them blast the inane final episode. Oh well, we'll always have the jingle. Don't hurt yourself on those bass notes.

I had an alternate lyric there but it was an over the line bash of the sports chix show so I scrapped it

I figured a song w/ "grapefuit juice" in the lyrics had to be by Brad, that's kinda his trademark lyric at this point. Nice & timely work, Patrick!
