(Nationals) Park(s) and Recreation

If you’re like me, if you aren’t watching baseball, you’re watching Parks and Recreation episodes, making every effort to find ways to incorporate the wisdom of Ron Swanson into your everyday life.

Or at least gifs of Ron—here’s my personal fave:

Every so often, these worlds collide in a cacophony that is comparable only to a Mouse Rat concert, or perhaps the Pawnee/Eagleton Unity Concert—you pick. Well, it happened just now, in the form of song.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you ‘5000 Sac Bunts in the Wind’, inspired by Twitter’s very own @nextyeardc, sung to the tune of ‘5000 Candles in the Wind’ by Mouse Rat (formerly Scarecrow Boat):

 

5000 Sac Bunts in the Wind

 

Down in southeast DC here’s the thing

You square to bunt and never swing

 

Come here with a hitting eye

Forget all that it’s time for the sacrifice

 

Bunt bunt Washington National

Outfield hits are way too casual

 

Bunt bunt Washington National

You’re 5000 sac bunts in the wind

 

It’s still a work in progress, but I think it has hit power. Expect it to quickly replace ‘Take On Me’ as the song sung during after the seventh inning stretch when it’s complete and become Bryce Harper’s new walk up song, replacing the other 73 he currently uses. It’s just a matter of time.

Although now that I think about it, Bryce is probably more of a Johnny Karate guy.
