Wu-Tang Clan vs. E Street Band

with 4 comments

Sometimes, it’s the tiniest things. I saw the words fantasy baseball on the front of a magazine, and it got me thinking about MY baseball fantasy: a game between the Wu-Tang Clan and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. Of course, one has to pretend that ODB and Danny Federici are still alive. I gave a lot of thought to their positions and the batting order. I wanted Bruce to be the pitcher, so in the rude parlance of our time, it could only be his wife Patti Scialfa who is the catcher. Both teams have power guys at first base, Raekwon and Clarence Clemons, and what I imagine to be speedy guys as lead off hitters.

Anyway, I imagined the teams, so I imagined the game, too. RZA got off to a great start on the mound, pitching four perfect innings. Method Man was the player of the game going 3 for 4, with an RBI and a run scored. I also imagined the leagues these teams played in.

The fielding positions are below. You can see the full thing, including box score here.

  3. This is awesome. I would have done a slightly different order for Wu though:

    Deck (often has the first verse on songs)
    GZA
    Rae
    Meth
    Ghost (a beast, gotta move him up)
    U-God
    ODB
    MK
    RZA (pitcher)

    Sick site!

  4. Raekwon is a big dude who, admittedly, loves food. I hardly imagine him as "speedy."
