Shattered (Turn the Car Around)

I decided to play a little game today. I would put my iTunes on shuffle and unless it came up with a Christmas song or a Les Mis song or a Veggie Tales song or something equally as strange I would relate the song to baseball. No matter what. I will probably play this game a lot now that I have thought of it. It should e a fun activity when I am bored which happens often especially when it is rainy and gross outside like today.

Shattered (Turn the Car Around) OAR

In a way I need a change from this burnt out scene
Another time, another town, another everything
But it’s always back to you
Stumble out in the night in the pouring rain
Made the blocks had the thought there’s more I need
It’s always back to you

This describes the trials of cheering for a team with a long championship drought (Cubs, Indians, etc.). Indians fans long for another time like the 1940’s and 50’s and 90’s when the team was really good. Cubs fans yearn for another team because frankly they haven’t really been good for awhile. I know they make it to the playoffs but they choke. That’s no fun. However as much as fans get sick of their team’s losing ways they still come back. I have experienced this with the Indians. Last year was awful. Do I love them less? No. I came back.

But I’m good without you, yeah I’m good without you, yeah
How many times can I break ’til I shatter
Over the line can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is time but I’ll shatter
I always turn the car around

This is about baseball in general. How many times can this game break before it shatters completely? My guess? Infinitely many times. Baseball will never die. People have to give it a break as the song says and give it time and it will fix itself as it has in the past.

Had no idea that the night would take so [darn]* long
Took it out on the street while the rain still falls
Push me back to you

Even though baseball is still going through some tough times fans keep getting pushed back to it.

But I’m good without you, yeah I’m good without you, yeah
How many times can I break ’til I shatter
Over the line can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is some time but I shattered
I always turn the car around
Give it up. give it up, baby
Give it up, give it up now.
Now.

This is what my insane friends and probably many other fans’ insane friends say to them about baseball. My friends insist that I should stop caring about baseball because it is broken, but…

How many times can I break ’til I shatter 
Over the line can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around
All that I feel is the realness I’m faking
Taking my time but it’s time that I’ve wasted
Always turn the car around

We already determined that baseball will never die. Right now many people feel that baseball is a game of fakers and cheaters. If baseball fans spend their time thinking about these trials they will just be wasting their time. They know they will still love the game no matter what.

How many times can I break ’til I shatter
Over the line can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around
Don’t wanna turn this car around
I’ve gotta turn this thing around

Again baseball fans always turn around and come back to baseball and their team no matter what. As painful as it can be to watch your team lose or your favorite player mess up their life with drugs or bad choices you come back. In the end, you have to. Baseball is a part of we are as fans and we cannot just throw away a part of ourselves.

Alright that one was a bit cheesy but I had to work with I got. And unfortunately I had to bring up stupid steroids again. Sorry.
*Sorry kids. I didn’t write it. It was not that bad though so I decided I could still use the song.
