Adam Duritz of the Counting Crows has some advice for Toronto Blue Jays fans as the team is in the midst of a heated playoff race; it’s a long September. Or at least, his look-alike does.
‘Tis the season for Toronto Blue Jays pump-up songs and parodies, and this video is an early entry in what will surely be a cavalcade of songs if the Jays squeak into the postseason and make a run through ctober.
Via Rodrigo Fernandez-Stoll (@rodrigofstoll), here’s the Toronto Blue Jays getting the Counting Crows treatment in “A Long September”.
My favourite line from this – “The Jays aren’t losing, but they’re not exactly winning”.
This video also served as a reminder to me; the baseball regular season is ending really, really soon. I’ve been so preoccupied with the Blue Jays making the postseason, that later in October, there may not be a Blue Jays game to watch at all.
A disclaimer that this earworm from Rodrigo will probably lead you down the rabbit hole when it comes to mid-90’s alt rock, which may or may not lead to videos by Gin Blossoms, Dave Matthews Band, and Blues Traveler. Well, there goes that morning.
