Prof and I couldn’t come up with a decent theme for today’s post, so I decided to flip the script a bit. Let’s talk about television theme songs. What’s your favorite? The Theme should set a proper tone for the show, be catchy, and withstand the test of time.
I’ll start of with my favorite theme of all time that also happens to be my favorite show of all time. It’s just so perfect.
Always one of the more popular theme songs, this was one of my favorite shows growing up as a child. Even after all these years, it always brings a smile to my face.
Such a deep, dark, and beautiful song. Really hard not to hit you in the gut with this one.
So now that I took at least two of the most popular, what is your favorite? Night Court? Simpsons? Barney Miller? WKRP in Cincinnati? Welcome Back Kotter? Scrubs?
Braves 3, Marlins 2 – F/10 – Jace Peterson held all the offensive cards for the team from Atlanta. Peterson hit a game tying 2 run homerun in the 8th, then broke it open with a RBI single in the 10th.
Diamondbacks 4, Blue Jays 2 – Despite outhitting Arizona 9-3 the Blue Jays couldn’t push enough runs across the plate.
Cardinals 4, Cubs 3 – Those bumbs the Cubs have dropped TWO consecutive games and face a series sweep tonight. So overrated.
Reds 8, Rangers 2 – Prof: Colby Lewis left after five innings due to cramping in his arm, but not before allowing runs everywhere. Plus, the Reds did all of this without the services of Joey Votto, who sat out due to an undisclosed illness.
Tigers 4, Mariners 2 – Seattle has lost 8 of their last 10 and now are only a half game ahead of Houston.
Rockies 8, Yankees 4 – Ian Nova gets smoked for 8 runs in 4 innings. Start making some calls Cash.
Twins 14, Phillies 10 – Prof: Kurt Suzuki with 6 RBI. No, seriously. Meanwhile, Aaron Nola gets another loss, dropping to 5-7 for the season after a hot start to the year.
Brewers 3, A’s 5 – Doolittle with the win. I love that guy for having the best name in baseball alone.
Indians 6, Rays 0 – Kluber blanks the Rays giving up just 3 hits and pitching a complete game on 115 pitches.
Padres 10, Orioles 7 – Prof: The normally solid Baltimore bullpen had a meltdown against the generally sad Pads. A wasted effort from Pedro Alvarez, who had two home runs and five ribbies.
Nationals 2, Dodgers 3 – The Dodgers get a rare victory against a winning team when Kershaw isn’t pitching. I’ve always hated the whole pitcher MVP thing (I prefer two separate awards, one for pitchers, one for batters.) but if we are going to let that happen, it’s pretty hard to argue against Kershaw this year. No single player is more valuable to their team this season.
Mets 2, Royals 1 – Bartolo Colon was hit with a line drive and left the game after just one batter. The Mets bullpen managed to get 26 outs in this one. Talk about stepping up.
Astros 3, Angels 2 – Correa hit both a solo home-run and a two run walk-off single as the Astros just refuse to lose.
Giants 15, Pirates 4 – Prof: Johnny Cueto has quietly become one of the best pitchers, wins-wise, in the National League, and his teammates have his back again with a huge offensive effort. Angel Pagan hits a grand slam to gild the lily.
White Sox 3, Red Sox 1 – The White Sox may be down, but they still have Sale, who pulls to 12-2, holding one of the best offenses in the league to just one run.
