Friday Rock Out - The Incredible Bongo Band's "Let There Be Drums"


We're totally losing our mind with excitement over tomorrow's Canada-U.S. WBC tilt, and this little rocking gem is serving as a nice soundtrack for us as we bounce off the walls like a kid with three packs of Lik-m-Aid in him. Woo!

Incidentally, those from the East Coast may remember this song as the theme from late lamented Atlantic Grand Prix Wrestling. (Leo Burke! The Great Malumba! The Cuban Assassin! Leapin' Lanny! Killer Karl Krupp! "No Class" Bobby Bass! Coming to the Berwick Arena on Thursday! The Montague Coliseum on Friday! And the Colchester Stadium in Truro on Sunday!)

In fact, we think Matt Stairs should totally be playing this as he steps to the plate this weekend, and not just because he looks like he should be a wrestler in minor territory circa 1982.

Whether if you're headed down to the Dome, or if you plan to watch from home, we hope that this weekend's games warm your cockles and get you psyched for the season to come.

Let there be baseball.

Either that music has some crazy unintended effects, or the picture of the record in the video is slowly changing sizes.

I think I'm gonna go lay down.

As for Atlantic Grand Prix Wrestling, do you remember who the big goofy Acadian was? He was around 7-feet (so they said) and had a cup of coffee with the WWF. I'm drawing ablank, but man he was goofy looking.

Tao, your taste in music is impeccable. I haven't listened to that album in ages, but I'm queueing it up for my afternoon drive. You rock. Have a good one.

It's a good thing I don't post Friday afternoon rock outs....though Greggg Zaun would probably enjoy them.

The class quotient of the blog would drop considerably when I linked to youtube videos of Hanoi Rocks, TFFL era Crue, et al.

Ack, if Scott Rolen gets traded I'll be playing Close to Me on repeat for about three days. Luckily he won't.

I loved Atlantic Grand Prix wrestling and I love this tune, but for some reason, my long term memory fails to make the connection between them. Maybe my dad put me in the German Claw too many times.

That's 3 for Lane.

Be careful at the game, guys. Peavy is talking about strap ons and stuff so I don't even know what's going to go down.

If rolen gets traded, I might even hug JP.....maybe not,yuck! Rolen is going nowhere unless the Jays eat half of the contract and ask for nothing in return.

As a transplanted Man Of The East, I have a great love & appreciation of Atlantic Grand Prix Wresting. Lest we not ever forget Big Stephen Petipas & Sweet Daddy Siki!
