Vlade for Three!!!!

Do you remember when the Hornets were in Charlotte and when they were good. Mugsey, LJ, Dell Curry and of course Vlade Divac.  Vlade was the man.   This is my tribute song to him that opens my ‘Getaway Plans’ album.

This song features the amazing Andrej Kurti on violin absolutely tearing it up!

Thanks for listening!

Ricky Rubio Song

I saw an article from Spain where they talk about this song ( and even translate it ).  I recorded it on November 14th for this blog last year and have gotten an outpouring of support from Spanish basketball fans.   I’m a big Rubio fan, but I also like Gasol, Navarro and a few more up and coming players from there.

Whats’ really cool is that now that it’s gotten this much attention, maybe Ricky Rubio himself has listened to it.  If so, holla at me Ricky.  I’d love to come to a FC Barcelona game!!!!!

Pau Gasol Song. November 27th

I just had to do another NBA song.  Pau Gasol has been killing it this year.  The Laker’s new strategy is to let him be the high scorer most nights.  Kobe gets to rest up until crunch time while Pau gets serious consideration for MVP.  He’s definitely the best forward in the league now and Spain may give the U.S. a run in the London Olympics.  They’ve got Navarro and Ricky Rubio too.    Thanks for listening!

Boise State Broncos Song. November 20th

Every week watching SportsCenter us East-coasters see the Boise State Broncos football highlights and stare in wonderment at their blue field.   It must have some psychological advantages for the team.  Obviously, they have won 31 in a row!  I think this is their year.  They definitely know how to pile the points on the board. This is my tribute song to their winning streak.   Although I think Auburn may have a better chance because they paid more for their players.  ha.  Thanks for listening!

Oh Ricky Rubio

”Outside the Lines” on ESPN did a story on Ricky Rubio this morning.   NBA fans have been waiting on him to come over to the States ever since he gave the USA team a run during the Olympics.  I’m a fan.  I don’t think he’ll ever play here unless Minnesota trades his rights.  Minneapolis or Barcelona?  Which would you pick?   Thanks for listening!

November 4th “Catering for Randy Moss”

I had to do something about the whole Randy Moss saga.  Mainly because I’ve always been a fan of Randy. He’s probably the best receiver of all time aside from Jerry Rice and he’s a complete enigma.  The story of him yelling at the caterer was too funny to pass up  (not for the caterer however, or any one else present undoubtedly).   Anyway, I’m psyched he’s going to the Titans.   I’m a Vince Young fan too.   I like all the players everybody hates undoubtedly (holla T.O.).    Thanks for listening!
