I really can't stand the Fox Baseball broadcasting team. Tim McCarver has a terrible habit of making inane observations, usually involving words that rhyme. "Wouldn't it have been great if Fidel Castro had tried out for the Astros? Get it.....Castro/Astros?"

Anyway, last night during the AS game he recited the lyrics to "Enter Sandman", Mariano Rivera's walk-on music. Must see TV.

I decline to watch, as this would surely ruin Metallica, baseball and the internet for me.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

I loved it!!!

I'd like him to quote some "Rage Against the Machine "Killing in the Name" next.

McCarver was praising the song as if Mariano Rivera wrote it himself.
