Around 2PM I was driving home and for some reason I had my XM off, so I was listening first to 105.7 The Fan, but changed the station after some inane caller was asking if the Terps could win the tournament. Um, the answer to that question is no. Anyway, I switched to WTMD and it was some kind of cool twangy song, so I kept it there.
The next song came on and it sounded really familiar, but I couldn't really place it... it was just a piano and some guy singing about hanging on for the past ten years... and I was totally digging it. And then the song kicked up a notch and I knew that it was the How Bout Dem O's song.
Even though I've listened to the song a bunch of times on the internet, listening to it on the radio, especially when I wasn't expecting to hear it, was such a joy. I turned it up and was singing along... I was literally pounding my fist onto my gear shift knob to the beat as I drove.
I'm so ready for the season to begin. As one spammer on the Midnight Sun blog commented, "0-162 I don't care! Die Hard Fans just love 'em all the time!"
Hell yeah, spammy. Hell yeah.
