A couple of weeks ago the Yankees beat the Red Sox, and so I was challenged by Bill to:
"Choose one of the vocal numbers from No, No Nanette....and record an a capella version of the song, with the mp3 file to be posted your blog forthwith.....For those of you who don't know, baseball lore holds that Babe Ruth's move from Boston to New York was partly a result of then Boston owner Harry Frazee's desire to finance the original production of the musical."
Whatever. Fine. With help from technical wizard Canada Dry Mike and the contents of his well-stocked bier keller I was able to sing my heart out while terrifying his pets (thanks Mike: I know you are clutch if I ever need humiliating: John, I could not have stood to have this on video...):
As I type, game three of the last regular season Sox/Yanks meeting is about to begin in Boston (so apologies for any typos, I'm flying through this in order to get downstairs to settle in with a dark and stormy and the flicker). The series is balanced at one a piece- fingers crossed!
