We Need More Organ
The Nationals organ player could learn a little something from one of my favorite "Saturday Night Live" skits featuring Will Farrell and a cowbell.
As Farrell ridiculously clonks away on the "instrument" in his typical over-the-top fashion, he also annoys the bejesus out of the rest of his fellow Blue Ã–yster Cult members. The record producer (played by a convincing Christopher Walken), however, keeps interrupting the demo with the instructions, "I gotta have more cowbell!"
If only Farrell's spirit could permeate the soul of the organ player at Nationals Park! Rather than the embarrassing blaring of songs like "Sexy Back" (seriously guys??) or, conversely, long stretches of complete silence, we need more organ!
I want to hear the organ player taunting the other team's players with ironic references to "Hail to the Chief," John Philip Sousa and other patriotic fanfare on their trip to D.C. I want to hear the rising scales of those four consecutive notes (doo doo doo doo -- you know what I'm talkin' about) so many times that I can't fall asleep because I can't get them out of my head. Yes, my ears crave the delightful sound of the baseball-park organ more than my pride craves a winning streak.
So come on, Mr. Organ Man: Earn that money and give us that old-timey jive. I mean, you can even play "Sexy Back" if you want to.
