Scott Stapp can sure list baseball things
There’s an old saying where I’m from. As well-worn as a pair of 1990s Levi’s, it’s one of those mantras that has proven itself to be both omniscient and inescapable. Almost cliché, it’s akin to “what goes around comes around.”
It goes something like this, “Creed can ruin anything.”
Over the years, I’ve kept track of the things Creed has ruined. Among others they’ve ruined patriotism, faith, wingspans and even giant collapsing mud golems. I guess somewhere deep down I knew Creed, or its members, would get to baseball…
Courtesy of The Awl, former Creed frontman Scott Stapp:
My favorite line is “with a little love and faith you will soar.” That’s what keeps the Yankees and Red Sox at the top of the standings every year, their love and faith. He’s really got an understanding of the ins and outs of baseball, you know, the stuff they can’t teach you at spring training.
“One strike, two strike, swing away
a diving catch, a stolen base,
a perfect game, a triple play, a double play”
I’ll tell you what, can that guy list terms or what?
Whoa. Wait a second. “List.” List starts with “L.” Oh my God….I knew I recognized that song from somewhere! It’s a plagiarism, a fraud even! Consider the evidence below….
Same song, different words.
