Why to love the Rays even more

Unless I’ve mistaken, but in between innings at Tampa, I’m pretty sure they play Ministry. Yes, that Ministry. Specifically, it might be “Scarecrow”, but I’m not 100% sure. In any case, it is a strange, but wonderful choice. So much for them exorcizing the devil, eh?


EK100 Preview (of sorts)

I have almost completed my Erik Gonzalez 100 and will likely start posting the list in the next week or so, but to get things rolling, I will post my top 10 favorite “Live” albums. I didn’t count live albums in my EK100 (except for one exceptional case), so this list is separate from the Top 100 for the most part. I feel I should mention that, on the whole, I don’t get too excited about live albums, I mean, not like the rabid Phish or Pearl Jam fans out there who want to own every concert the band has ever performed. Mostly, I feel that live albums can be a bit of a bore, but these stand out in my mind. Feel free to comment, but remember what rules I’m playing by here if you’re upset I left something out.
