Close, but not really

The Yankees and Phillies all leaned on the dugout railings at Yankee Stadium before Game 2 of the World Series, as a stage was wheeled to center field for Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, who performed their hit single, ‘Empire State of Mind.’

In response, as the Yankees were finishing up batting practice here tonight, the Phillies played … this guy and his Philadelphia remake. A lot of people thought it was a foul-up, until they heard lyrics like these: “Home of the Fresh Prince, jazzier than Jeff is, back in the day, Doc J rock a ’76.”

Trick or treat!

I was surprised to learn about this earlier tonight as the track was refused by the Phillies multiple times this week.

They informed us that permission was required for the music…the label would not provide it, other than to say, it would be tough, and usually it’s easier to ask for forgiveness later, than it is to get clearance before…
