Aubrey Huff Knows How to Offend a City (old news)

I mentioned Aubrey Huff quite awhile back in regards to the Oh Say Can You Sing CD he was featured on along with Matt Ginter, Ben Broussard, Scott Linebrink, Coco Crisp, Jimmy Rollins, Omar Vizquel, Jeff Conine, Sean Casey, and Kelly Wunsch.

Well his song was spoofed after he called Baltimore a “horseshit city”on Sirius Radio’s Bubba the Love Sponge show and I know I’m in no way breaking ground here, but I figured since I had video for his version I should put up the video of the spoof. It’s pretty funny, but watch out for language. After the break.

Quick Conversation With Jeremy Fikac

I graduated from Texas State University in May of 2008, but like most alumni from most schools, I continue to take an interest in their athletics.

Oh Say Can You Sing?

I just got my “Oh Say Can You Sing?” CD. It was released in 2005 apparently, but I just now heard of it. All of the recordings feature vocals by current Major Leaguers, plus one by Ozzie Smith. It’s a very cool concept, but several of the songs just sound like someone recorded karaoke. But the guys who play their own instruments (Matt Ginter, Ben Broussard, Scott Linebrink) more than make up for the karaoke sound. The CD also includes Coco Crisp and Jimmy Rollins who perform their own original rap songs. Omar Vizquel, whose accent… Well I feel mean but it’s funny. More importantly it’s endearing. That’s not a knock on Omar. The list is rounded out by Jeff Conine, Sean Casey, Kelly Wunsch and Aubrey Huff. (more…)
