    My Kings’ pick would be Iron Maiden’s “The Wicker Man” whose chorus is “Your Time Will Come!”. That time is now.

  2. John Russo says:

    I love how Dan tells me how irrelevant Jay-Z is when I made a 99 Problems Phillies t-shirt YET he uses a Jay-Z song on this list.

    Overall, a couple of these made me laugh: “Carolina’s a decent team, but they aren’t quite Hurricane status at this point.” Washington also made me laugh.

    And I can’t comment on a music post without complementing the fact you used a Steely Dan song. Major kudos to that.

    hey i never said Jay Z was irrelevant!
