Here in the Eastern Time Zone, I – well, most people, really – don’t hear much about San Diego. Of course, we’re hearing and seeing a lot more than usual this year because we can’t really ignore a first-place team (which they are, as of this post). Sadly, I still don’t know nearly as much about them as I should. I instead wrote about a phenomenon that happens quite frequently in baseball stadiums across the country: The Ball Chasers. These people will do anything to get their hands on a free baseball… even if it means interfering with play, knocking people over, or even landing on the field face-first. The protagonist – or antagonist, if you prefer – completes his mission and snags a free baseball!… only to find out it wasn’t actually a foul ball.
Musically, this one was pretty simple. Even though there have been a healthy batch of interesting bands to come out of the area, the best-known San Diego-area band for my generation – and the one after – is Blink-182. So, I went for their mid-tempo single-type stuff. In retrospect, maybe I should have held my nose while singing the lead vocals… Anyways, enjoy the tune and I’ll see you next time!
Next up: San Francisco (Tuesday), Seattle (Next Friday)
