If you haven't already, of course. :)
Attention fans: Your popcorn is not safe from Jeff Francoeur - I miss this goofball.
Intentional Talk: Brian McCann
Email from MLBN:
I thought you might be interested in this humorous interview with Brian McCann on Friday’s “Intentional Talk.” Speaking via Ballpark Cam at Turner Field to Chris Rose and Kevin Millar, McCann discussed how much Chipper Jones is enjoying his last season, the pregame dance he does with Jones, and being poked in the eye by Michael Bourn during a high-five at home plate earlier this year.
Freddie's new slo-mo video:
And finally, the best thing to hit the internet this week:
Ricky emailed me the story of his inspiration and it's so great!
When I tried out for the MLB FanCave at the beginning of this year, my application video included some snippets of me singing goofy parody songs. It seemed like people dug it and personally it was a lot of fun for me to write and sing them! After actually making it into the FanCave I wrote a couple parody songs including "He Is Brian McCann" based on "Hold My Hand" by Hootie and the Blowfish which I played for Darius Rucker and also an original song about Jeff Francoeur called "They Call Him Frenchy" which I played for Francoeur. I had such a blast writing and playing those songs and upon returning home to Virginia from the FanCave last week, I was itching to write a new song about something Braves related. Lo and behold, Chipper joins Twitter and starts gracing #BravesCountry with all of these crazy awesome words and nicknames and I knew what I needed to make a song about. While thinking specifically about the word "yickitty" I realized that it would fit perfectly in Blackstreet's "No Diggity" (a personal favorite of mine...every time I hear it it takes me back in time to middle school dances haha). Once I had the title of "Go Yickitty," I just tried to write the rest of the song using as many references to Chipper's Twitta as possible! As for the video itself, I had high hopes of green screening these characters into crazy settings and backgrounds with a lot of fancy video editing, but after some trial and error I decided that it might be funnier to just have some paper cutouts on sticks bouncing around haha. The response I've gotten from all of the players, media, and fans has been nothing short of amazing!! I'm so proud to be a member of #BravesCountry!!!
I can't decide what I like best, the song choice, JHey's pimp necklace, Uggla dancing, or obviously, the Moylo dress. :) So fun!!
Thanks for sharing, everyone. We need more fun in Atlanta.
