Day 60 - Take Me Out to The Ball Game (Or It's On, Joe Wilhoit!)

For those of you keeping score at home, Teenage Kicks passed DiMaggio on Saturday with Day 57's "Lust For Life". Now it's on to the great Joe Wilhoit, who in 1919 set the minor league baseball record with a 69 game hitting streak for the unforgettable Wichita Jobbers of the Western League. Guess who has the second longest minor league hitting streak? Joltin Joe, of course - 61 games in 1933 playing for the San Francisco Seals.

By the way, how about that National League? I think it's wonderful that the Braves' Brian McCann just helped clinch home field advantage for my Philadelphia Phillies in the 2010 World Series.

The Hold Steady - "Take Me Out To The Ball Game"

Obligatory 2010 track, Today's most popular search on the wonderful Hype Machine:

Local Natives - "Wide Eyes (Fool's Gold Remix feat. Aristotle Pop A Bottle)"

One comment: Is it me, or are 98% of all remixes needless exercises in knob twiddling?
