Boulevard of Borken Dreams

Full credit for this goes to AK over at RSN.net. Absolutely cracks me up. While making me sort of sad at the same time. You’ll be missed Bellhorn, you’ll be missed.

Boulevard of Borken Dreams
—————————

I walk to first from home
The only way to first I have ever known
Don’t know what hits are
But it’s ok with me and I walk from home

I walk or swing, got beat
On the Boulevard of Borken Dreams
Where my bat’s asleep
and I’m the only one and I walk from home

I walk from home
I walk from home

I walk from home
I walk from…

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
A base hit is the only thing that’s fleeting
Sometimes I wish someone out there will sign me
‘Til then I walk from home

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah,
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I’m walking down the line
That divides foul from fair all the time
On the border line
Of the edge and where I walk from home

Read between the lines
I’m in Pawtucket and nothing is alright
Check my vital signs
To know I’m still alive and I walk from home

I walk from home
I walk from home

I walk from home
I walk from…

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
A base hit is the only thing that’s fleeting
Sometimes I wish someone out there will sign me
‘Til then I walk from home

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah
Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I walk from home
I walk from…

When I swing I do get beat
On the Boulevard of Borken Dreams
Where the slump is deep
And I’m the lonely one and I walk from…

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
A base hit is the only thing that’s fleeting
Sometimes I wish someone out there will sign me
‘Til then I walk from home

It would be worth noting for the people unaware of it, but “Borken” is not a typo. It refers to a nickname for Bellhorn. He was called “Bork” because he either walked or struck out (or so it seemed). This of course in baseball short hand is Walk=BB and StrikeOut=K therefore BBorK (Bork) is born.

Also, AK did an amazing job. Great parody lyrics.

But still is the memory of the clank on the foul pole in YS, to complete the Comeback.

Actually, Ed, “Boulevard of Borken Dreams” was a typo in chat when AK was trying to type “Boulevard of Broken Dreams.” He then made the typo into something far, far greater. So it was a typo, and yet it’s not at the same time.

See this is why I need to spend more time in chat and less time working. Damnit!!!

Still it works wonderfully.
