Cubs Say No To Call Me Maybe

Cubs in-game program director Jim Oboikowitch announced some changes to the 7th inning stretch and music that will be played at Wrigley this year. The changes to the 7 th inning stretch will include adding former Cubs players and celebrities that are native to Chicago. For those of us with capable ears let's hope some of them might even be able to carry a note.

One curious thought Oboikowitch had was that the newer music that'll be played will not include "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen. What do the Cubs have against a catchy song about giving your number to a dude whose name she may or may not know. As a man I am comfortable enough to admit that if it comes on the radio I will sing it at the top of my lungs, yep, there were witnesses.

It made me think of other artists that should be banned as well. So below is a list:

1. Anything by Cheef Keef- I mean for real his name is Cheef Keef. No thanks, Cheef...

2. Justin Beiber- it is just time to ignore him. He is like a rash the more you scratch the worst it gets.

3. Black Eyed Peas- it seems like every album they release should be allied "Songs That Will Eventually Become Sports Cliches".

4. fun- they are no longer fun...

While I am at it, can we do away with "Go Cubs Go"? The only thing more annoying than the song itself is thousands of drunk folks singing it. I understand if you have fun but you can have fun with a different song. How about "Call Me Maybe" seriously so much fun to sing. I will give you a moment to sing it to yourself and then you will see how good you feel.

I am a ukulele player, i wonder if I can come up with a song for the Cubs that is a little better. The Cubs could always pick a song from the time they won the World Series but I do not think Bach and Beethoven inspire victory. Yep I am a Sox fan taking a swipe at Cubs fans. I am just having fun so don't take me too seriously.
