Sox fan?

Your favorite team playing poorly can affect you in many different ways; it can make you drink, sad, angry, or write a really sarcastic song about the team. It’s interesting because as I watch the White Sox on a daily basis I become more cynical because of their erractic play. Their starting pitching has been shaky but may be on the rebound, like I said may be on the rebound and they have no timely hitting. Sometimes they can’t even hit at all, forget about timely hitting. Yet, I return to the television or the ballpark on a consistent basis to put myself through misery, but I’ve found some therapy.

Earlier in the week I watching the Sox lose to the Royals and a funny thought popped into my head, how about a song. On my way home earlier that day I had heard, “Wanted Dead or Alive” by Bon Jovi on the radio, so it was fresh in my head. I’m sure when Bon Jovi wrote this 80’s hit they never thought it would be used as a baseball parity, but I’ve found a way. So, without further ado, I present the theme song for the 2010 White Sox, “Playing more Dead than Alive,” to the melody of “Wanted Dead or Alive” by Bon Jovi. ENJOY!

Playing more Dead than Alive

It’s all the same, only the names have changed
The hitting goes away depending on the day
I know a place where the hitters are so cold
They get no hits and their pitching blows

They’re the White Sox and on Ozzie’s mouth they ride
They play like they’re Dead not Alive, Dead not Alive

Sometimes they win, sometimes it’s not for days
The hitters that bat always ground into double plays
Sometimes you judge a team
By the record they keep
And right now it really stinks

They’re the White Sox and on Ozzie’s mouth they ride
They play like they’re Dead not Alive, Dead not Alive

They like losing streaks, like they’re playing for last
Paulie’s playing for keeps, cause he’s not coming back
Pierre can’t hit, and Bobby still looks fat
They’ve seen a million faces and depressed them all

They’re the White Sox and on Ozzie’s mouth they ride
They play like they’re Dead not Alive, Dead not Alive
