  • The Ballad of Rick Hahn

    Decided to channel my inner tebman and pen this ditty to the tune of The Ballad of John and Yoko:

    Sitting there at Guaranteed Rate
    Thinking about Cora and Hinch
    The chairman walked in

    And said, “It would be a sin
    If we don’t bring Tony back in a cinch.”


    Christ you know it ain't easy
    You know how hard it can be
    The way things are going
    They're going to crucify me


    Finally made the call to that guy
    Although he hadn’t been in my plans
    I told him the boss
    Thought it would be awesomesauce
    To return despite the thoughts of our fans


    Christ you know it ain't easy
    You know how hard it can be
    The way things are going
    They're going to crucify me


    He came from Anaheim to Chicago
    We talked with him for maybe a week
    The news people said
    “What’s going on in your head?
    La Russa’s gonna disrupt the peace”


    Christ you know it ain't easy
    You know how hard it can be
    The way things are going
    They're going to crucify me


    Dealing with the backlash almost every day
    Thought they would warm up to it
    Then comes a DUI
    I thought I’d wanna die
    But still, he’s gonna manage our club, damn


    Even if he isn’t found guilty
    Of driving while he was in the bag
    The newspapers said
    He had a big head
    Now our foundation’s starting to sag


    Christ you know it ain't easy
    You know how hard it can be
    The way things are going
    They're going to crucify me


    Now our fans are all angry at us
    And we suffocate in a sack
    The folks from the press
    Who saw last season’s success
    Have realized our chairman’s a hack


    Christ you know it ain't easy
    You know how hard it can be
    The way things are going
    They're going to crucify me


    The way things are going
    They're going to crucify me

      Very well done!

      How about the Ballad of Every Single Sox Fan? "Christ you know it ain't easy...." There's decades-worth of embarrassing material for someone more creative than me to put together a song. Centuries even if you want to go back to 1919.

          Well done! You're in the team photo with Weird Al Yankovic and the bards of Mad Magazine, which is good company to be in. And it neatly summarizes this whole simmering mess.
