Softball and Cinderella “Gypsy Road”…ahh Summer.
Summer is in the air. I can feel it. Despite Old Man Winter’s valiant efforts, Summer is pushing its way in. Its getting humid, the trees are green and a good buddy of mine said to me last night “I have a softball game tonight”. I suggested he hit a “homer” and he likely did. With the arrival of near summer one song reminds me of softball, summer, beer, weekend softball tourneys, hotties, and fun times. The song is “Gypsy Road” by Cinderella. Why? you may ask? Because I was once on an epic softball team who played music before each person’s at bat. Each person had a song……a cockrock song. Gypsy Road was “Forklift’s” song and it always got me ready to play.
I know, this isnt your usual Losers Bracket material….but that’s exactly what were striving for……unusual, along with mainstream. Kind of like Cinderella. They were 100% cockrock, but also had some blues and a unique voice.
Here is a shout out to Summer, Softball leagues, ,tourneys and The Forklift.
