My Walk Up Music

"Walk-up music" refers to music played on a public address system when a baseball player comes to bat. I've discovered that I now have my own walk-up music.

Yesterday afternoon after work, I found myself with a little bit of spare time, and decided to walk down and play some pinball. The people working there saw me coming. As I headed for the machine, they put "Pinball Wizard" on the music system. Loud.

The thing is, while my first game was excellent (three extra balls and a free game), I then lost my touch, and played the remaining five games in quick and low-scoring succession. So I'm like the slugger who comes up and hits a home run on his first at bat but then strikes out every other time he comes to the plate in that game.

But if I ever am in a position to need walk-up music, I hope I'll remember to ask for "Pinball Wizard."
