MLB Bullets Needs A New Natitude

The terrible season in Washington just got worse. The Hudson--Zito matchup didn't last long, but no one cared. Mike Trout made a catch for the ages.

I've got another classic rock rant, although I don't think this one is going to be very controversial. As I watch the Cubs game Sunday night, a commercial for a brand of liquor (I won't mention it because that's what they want) invites us to celebrate the Rolling Stones "legendary" 1972 North American Tour with their brand of spirits because that's what the Stones drank. They also did a lot of heroin but I don't see anyone recommending that to commemorate the Stones.

OK, fine. The Stones want some money and this alcohol wants the "cool" factor associated with a 50-year-old rock and roll band. I've got no problem with that. What I do have a problem with is that the song they play is "Miss You," which is from 1978. Seriously? You couldn't play "Tumbling Dice," which is actually from 1972? Or even anything from 1971's Sticky Fingers album which has several of the Stones' most famous songs? It's like if Don Draper listened to "Disco Duck" on the car radio in the final episode of Mad Men for no reason whatsoever.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
