FanPost

He's a Cardinal Now


Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is a really weird title for a fanpost that really needs an explanation. So I guess I'll explain it before I throw in the main part. I'm home sick with bronchitis/pneumonia and really wanted to talk to someone so I texted my friend's mom's fiance. For those of you who may have not heard this before, he is a delivery man who delivers dog food to Gardy's house on a regular basis. He's both a huge Twins fan and a Nick Punto fan. On the day Punto signed with St. Louis, he delivered to Gardy's house and jokingly said "Hey, and this season you should play Nicky Punto more often!!!" Gardy promptly slammed the door in his face.

 

So today I jokingly texted him saying if he delivered to Gardy's today that he should tell him his fiance's daughter's best friend is a huge Twins fan and she's sick so it would mean a lot if he could bring her a ball signed by four of her favorite players, Brian Duensing, Danny Valencia, Joe Mauer, and Ben Revere. His response was "Maybe, but first you have to write me a song about Nick Punto." So I took the song I was listening to at the time (She's Got A Boyfriend Now by Boys Like Girls) and turned it into "He's a Cardinal Now". Now he had better hold up his part of the deal... :P

And I totally don't mean to try to steal any of Randball Stu's thunder from his brilliant Champagne SuperTolbert by posting another song parody on the same day that he did, but I thought you guys would get a kick out of this one too.

He was gritty and undefeatable
Had defense figured out
And the legend LNP
Told me everything's gonna be all right
And everything was gonna be all right

Yeah, we didn't offer him enough
But you never want the ending
When your front office is paying
Hoping everything's gonna be all right
And everything was gonna be all right

Gritty down deep inside, stars stuck in my eyes

Now he's in St. Louis and I'm back in Minny
'Cause nothing really ever goes the way it's planned
Yeah, he's in Missouri and I'm on some back road
Driving to the city and then who knows?

'Cause that's all we know
I wish that I could turn that deal around
But he's a Cardinal now.

Then I took a trip out to Mizzou
For the Cardinal with the grit and that is means you,
I'm thinking everything's gonna be all right
And everything was gonna be all right

Maybe I thought I could sneak in
And swipe him off the field and go right back to St. Paul
Thinking everything's gonna be all right
And everything was gonna be all right

The dreams keep holding on but now he's so far gone

Now he's in St. Louis and I'm back in Minny
'Cause nothing really ever goes the way it's planned
Yeah, he's in Missouri and I'm on some back road
Driving to the city and then who knows?

'Cause that's all we know
I wish that I could turn that deal around
But he's a Cardinal now.

Take you back up here somehow
And everything that I know now
It's so hard, they tore us apart

Take me back to feeling
Like when you would just keep stealing
In our uni, but now you're just so far

And I'm missing you and miserable
Got the deal figured out
And the bird on my shoulders
Told me everything's gonna be all right
When is everything gonna be all right?

Now he's in St. Louis and I'm back in Minny
'Cause nothing really ever goes the way it's planned
Yeah, he's in Missouri and I'm on some back road
Driving to the city and then who knows?

'Cause that's all we know
I wish that I could turn that deal around
'Cause there he goes
I wish that I could press rewind somehow

'Cause he's a Cardinal now
He's a Cardinal now
Yeah, he's a Cardinal now

Took your, took your grit away
Took your, took your grit away
He's a Cardinal now

I'm pretty sure that the fact that I took the time to write this all out means that I'm pretty awesome at avoiding doing makeup work :) Well that and that I need a life.
