This week the NL ladies let us know what they thought their team’s theme song should be this season, in case you missed the AL edition of you can see it here.
1. Arizona Diamondbacks (Snakes on the Grass): Running From Lions- All Time Low- Cat chose this song because “Based on the fact that Kirk Gibson is a perfectionist and all he can say about last year’s winning of the NL West is that it wasn’t nearly good enough. (“Don’t forget, we’ve got unfinished business/ stories yet to unfold/tales that must be retold”). Though, it would be more appropriate if it were “Running From Giants” instead.”
2. Chicago Cubs (A League of Her Own): I Hate Myself For Loving You- Joan Jett- As Julie says “it’s self-explanatory.”
3. Cincinnati Reds (C-ing Red): Seize the Day- Newsies- Tara thinks this song is perfect for the Reds because “First, that movie is hilarious. And Homer Bailey looks a little Christian Bale. Second, this season, we seem to be taking the offensive. Trading a boatload of prospects to improve the pitching. Signing Madson, which did seem like an awesome deal at one point. And now the Joey Votto mega-extension. The Reds are taking matters into their own hands. Third, it’s really because I want to make people watch clips from Newsies.”
4. Houston Astros (Tales From the Juice Box): Take Back The City- Snow Patrol- Terri chose this song because “After a horrendous 2011 city, the Houston Astros lost some fans. With an energized new ownership and front office team along with a crop of young gun players ready to prove themselves…it is indeed time for the Houston Astros to “Take Back the City.”" Honorable mention: “if it’s supposed to be the current team, the Astros tune should be “Smells like Teen Spirit” – LOL!”.
5. San Francisco Giants (Third Street Kings): Ramble On- Led Zeppelin- Mac picked this song for the Giants because “it was once Buster Posey’s at-bat song and I feel like that’s basically what everyone is doing around the Giants: rambling. Especially when it comes to Belt and Pill.”
6. St. Louis Cardinals (Aaron Miles’ Fastball): We Are The Champions- Queen- As Christine says “Yes, I know. But, duh. I had to.”
7. Washington Nationals (Win for Teddy): Defy You- Offspring- Keara chose this song for the Nationals because they are “still thought of as basement dwellers even though they’ve made so much progress.”
