Catching Up With BBTN's Take Me Out To The Ballgame Performances

Monday, June 23, 2008

I swear I've been watching Baseball Tonight a lot as of late but I didn't see any of these performances when they were aired for the first time. Anywho, here are the first set of musical acts including John Pizzarelli, Lloyd, The Cab and Gretchen Wilson. For some reason the Punch Brothers (who were third on the list) won't load, so we'll have to do without them for the time being.



My favorite part about those is how Gretchen Wilson strung out a :20 song into about a 2-minute version. This is what happens when you throw in a violin solo though. Pretty boring if you ask me, but I did enjoy the Pizzarelli version. And yes...it's still the most boring Sports time of the year.

Here's the rest of the schedule....

Monday, June 23
(after Arizona at Boston)
Ozomatli

Wednesday, June 25
(after Arizona at Boston)
Branford Marsalis

Saturday, June 28
(after Indycar Richmond)
Candlebox

Sunday, June 29

After REO's, they should have an ugly-off between Kevin Cronin and Gammons.

I'm looking forward to the Ozomatli version...

well not so much looking forward to it since I more than likely won't see it... but it'll probably be better than all the others... `

Branford Marsalis seems like an odd choice for the ESPN crowd... as did that first guy.

That Gretchen Wilson one was fucking annoying.

Unless Gary Richrath is back, Reo Speedwagon is a fraud. Great we get to se Kevin Cronin eating another Microphone.

Why does Lloyd sound like Marilyn Monroe singing Happy Birthday to JFK?

Candlebox? Is it 1993?
