I Feel Like Bustin' Loose    

The Washington Nationals' new home run theme song is absolutely perfect.

Instead of the standard Fatboy Slim/Blur pump-up stuff, Nats fans voted to use local go-go legend Chuck Brown's "Bustin' Loose."

What an inspired choice. This is a great moment in the history of baseball theatrics, rivaling the Yankees' "YMCA" tradition and the first use of "Sweet Caroline" at Fenway.

How proud my old home base has made me, if for no other reason than the individuality. Anyone could have picked an overdigested techno beat out of the hat (because they can can can!) but nobody else would have picked a go-go song... never mind such a totally dope go-go song. GIMMETHEBRIDGE Y'ALL, GIMMETHEBRIDGE Y'ALL! I defy you to get the horn riff out of your head.

If only they could stop the game for 7 1/2 minutes and let the whole thing play to completion. On every home run.

Anyway, bravo, DC. That $611 million is well-spent so far! (Well, except for the whole pathetic-hospitals-and-schools thing.)
