Music City, Baby
by: Corey Francis
The place were people say they love music only to complain about music being played. The city that embraces hockey and football with the passion of the must spirited bandwagon passion. People wear their team attire of choice, but few really understand the games. It is entertainment and bragging rights only.
Sports radio focuses on football 65 percent of the time, and Predator’s hockey 25 percent of the time. The rest is left to non-sense and shenanigans.
Being a Cubs fan is relatively easy. There is no pressure from anyone to prove your fandom, and plenty of others that proudly wear Cubs attire. Nashville may have a Triple-A team, but this city runs on football. We can hear the Cincinnati broadcasts and ESPN Sunday night games on the radio, but no real talk of baseball happens in the city.
It is a good place to be if you enjoy showing team pride, but few chances to talk about the game exist. That is why I enjoy working with the Cubbies Crib team. I get a chance to talk to you, the fans, about the team we love, even if we don’t live anywhere near each other.
