But this is one blog bitchfest bandwagon I don't mind jumping on....
The winning is nice. Very enjoyable. I would like it to continue ad infinitum.
HOWEVER, if the GB Leighton song torture continues all season...it's going to be a very loooong season. And there's no amount of winning that will quell the almost inevitable bleeding from ears.
That song is terrible. It's bad on FSN during games, and it's 10 times worse on the big screen at Target Field. It makes me cringe. I am embarrassed when I think of all the out of town tourists visiting Target Field, being subjected to that music video, and then inevitably thinking "Oh my...what have we gotten ourselves into? I had no idea that Minnesota, as a baseball franchise and a state, had this poor of taste in music and entertainment!"
It's forced and awkward, and tries to be a lot cooler than it is. Which is absolutely the worst kind of lame. And it's not even catchy. [Although, perhaps I should be thankful for that fact. If I ever get that song stuck in my head, bad bad things might happen.]
We deserve better, dammit. I'm happy to know that I'm not alone in my blistering hatred for said musical number. Eric from Call To The 'Pen has repeatedly, and snarkily, voiced his justified disapproval on his Twitter stream, which makes me happy in my heart. There was a very telling survey over at Twinkie Town, showing how much we all really hate this song. And I just joined Facebook groups called "I Hate GB Leightons Twins Song" and "Twins Need A Better Theme Song." Because if we can't make it stop, at least we can commiserate with like-minded people, I guess.
But aside from the daily dose of GB Leighton's terrible Twins song, and the occassional unfortunate Bieber appearance, the musical selections at Target Field seem pretty good to me, with lots of non-cringeworthy local flavor. The Replacements, Prince, Brother Ali....all good. "Sunday Girl" at Sunday games also makes me happy in my heart. If we could just snuff out that supposed theme song, we'd be nearing perfection.
