I never considered Doublewhiskeycokenoice to be anything close to a sports song, but any reminder to listen to the Dillinger Four is a win in my book. It does have a high shout-along-ability factor, so I guess that counts for something.

The song also gets name-checked in a great Hold Steady song, "Constructive Summer".

Still trying to get me into THS, eh, fatty?

Thought you might say that. It's a little late now as they seem to be on hiatus at best. That said, I would love to get you involved with something you don't really like in return for the Learned League invite. I can't quit it even though it makes me feel stupid on a daily basis.

That said there's a chance I'll get promoted today, which means I'll get my ass handed to me on a more regular basis.

Finn also penned a Twins "fight song."

Damn it, I was hoping that Art Blakey question was a sign! Glad you seem to be enjoying the suffering though. I'm shocked at how stupidly addictive that site is.

Mark your calendar for January 16 when I'll be making my trivia-writing debut. Totally not anxious about that at all.

I've always considered Todd Rundgren's "Just One Victory" to be one of the great sports songs, but I think I'm on my own.

Holy shit, a Bowler sighting. How the hell are you?

Well, hello. I'm badly in need of a misery song after Englands extraordinary achievment in snatching defeat from the jaws of victory at the rugby world cup
