They Played What, Where? Vol. 1, No. 2
Was enjoying a spectacular game between the Wiz and Raptors at Verizon Center last night (Dominic McGuire, welcome to the league!) when during a break in action the Wizards Dance Team jogged out to center court for one of their ... routines? Forty-five seconds of semi-coordinated gyrating? Anyway, this usually means we are going to hear "Bust a Move," "Sexyback" or ... no, it's usually "Bust a Move" or "Sexyback." So imagine my surprise when M.I.A.'s "Boyz" started pumping over the loudspeakers.
The rhythmic thumper from M.I.A.'s much-loved "Kala" album made a bit of noise when it was released as a single last year, but that still didn't prepare me to hear it at Verizon Center. The best musical offering at Wizards games is usually Digital Underground's "Kiss You Back" (during the reliably entertaining Kiss Cam segment), so to hear a song that I actually have in my iTunes library was a treat.
