I said that exact thing to 2 people this week…Don’t know if you know this, but before the pregame starts, Kim Jones and I usually chat a bit, just to make sure we’re on the same page, make sure she can hear me and vice versa, and to double check the mikes, etc. So, tonight, she mentions that she can do with a little less cowbell, because the Rays’ fans go crazy shaking their cowbells. Well, of course, what’s the line I’m gonna lay on her?! “Kim, I gotta have more cowbell!” That’s the key line from the great SNL skit featuring Will Ferrell as Gene Frenkle of Blue Oyster Cult, smacking his cowbell much to the dismay of his bandmates, and much to the delight of record producer Bruce Dickinson (Christopher Walken). Well, it seems that KJ is one of the 5 or so people left in the world who hasn’t seen that! I tried to explain it to her, but I think she glazed over midway through. I hope she’ll search it on YouTube (or just click the video link below). Enjoy the magic, Kim.
The other time took place a couple nights ago…I threw out a line from the movie Groundhog Day and our resident writer/researcher/web sensation Glenn Giangrande, who’s also the voice of our Just for Men Hold of the Day on the pregame, told me….no, admitted to me…that he’d never seen the movie Groundhog Day! Who hasn’t seen that, except Glenn?! I can’t count the number of times, when a day seems the same as another, I either say or I’ve heard others say, “It’s like Groundhog’s Day”, and everyone knows what that means! So, right now, I’m issuing a Blob challenge to Glenn…Go rent and watch Groundhog Day or I’ll go out in the parking lot and let the air out of your tires! I’m just kidding…I wouldn’t do that…I’d get somebody else to do it.
