Using Moz To Get Ready For Opening Day


Opening Day is right around the corner; 16 days away, to be exact. That is good news. To celebrate I thought I’d rework some of your favorite Smiths/Morrissey song titles to incorporate baseball. Is that something you might be interested in? Too bad, off we go:

  • Vicar In A Tutu Count
  • Bigmouth Strikes Out Again
  • Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Gloved Me
  • I Started An Inning I Couldn’t Finish
  • A Rush And A Push And The Division Is Ours
  • Death Of A Designated Hitter
  • The Boy With The Thorn In His Pitching Hand
  • This Night Game Has Opened My Eyes
  • Seventh Inning Stretch Out And Wait
  • Sweet And Tender LOOGY
  • Sheila Take A Curtain Call
  • I Know It’s [the season] Over (This can be played at Opening Day for the Mets)
  • Hand In Glove (Easiest one yet)
  • The Last Of The Famous International Free Agents
  • Interesting Performance-Enhancing Drug
  • Mr. November Spawned A Monster
  • The Mo You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get
  • You’re Going To Need Someone On Your Side, Due To The Shift
  • Pick-Off Palare
  • We Hate It When Our Bunts Become Successful
  • You’re The One For Me, Fatty. I’m Struggling And In Dire Need Of A Slumpbuster
  • I Have Forgiven Jesus (Montero)
  • The Second Youngest Boone Was The Most Loved
  • I Just Want To See The Bat Boy Happy
  • Now My Bases Are Full
  • Hold On To Your Foul Tips
  • Pitcher Sleeping, Base Stolen
  • Everyday Is Like A Monday/Thursday
  • The Manager Is Afraid Of The Players
  • Fan Meet Athlete
  • You Should Have Been Nice To Me When I Was A Rookie

Perhaps my favorite Smiths-baseball jaunt is this guy, “I was looking for a Joba and then I found a Joba, and heaven knows I’m miserable now.”

Sweetness, now you know how Joan of Arc felt.

    Love “The Mo You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get.” That’s solid pun-within-a-pun work right there.

    • Andrew Corselli

       @clarkbar213 Thanks! That was one of the easier ones; it just came to me…Are you a Smiths fan?

      • Robbie Clark

        I enjoy what I’ve heard of their music, but I’ve not listened to a whole lot of it.
