Bud Black. We hardly knew ye.

There's a stain on the Nationals
Where the manager was
Now it’s all in the papers
How the Lerner’s f’ed up
I'm sighing to think
They can’t get this right
Offering just one year
Is considered a slight

Now he's gone
And I cannot believe
The amateur hour
Down on Half Street
Now he's gone
Dusty Baker’s our man
Bud Black era’s over
Before it ever began

Bud Bud Black is not coming in
Bud Bud Black is not coming in

Besides being a TK fan I am also a sports fan in general and a Nats fan in particular. So I was pretty pissed that the Nats seemed to bungle the Black hiring and felt like I had to jingle. The anger was good for the performance, The good news is Baker is gonna be an interesting character so he'll provide us great fodder for our songs.

RE: jingle speed...when I get an idea for a song from that day's show I often wonder if steve will already have posted the same song on the site by the time I get home to record it.

Funny stuff, and this is more like time-travel-turnaround how quickly you got this one done. Impressively fast! A crazy story that I hope to hear lots of yelling about today on the podcast.
