They Might Also Approve “Emotion”

Good news! MLB owners, umpires and the MLBPA have issued their formal approval of what you, the discriminating fan, have approved all along.

That’s right: They approve Instant Replay.

According to a press release, the owners enjoy its catchy, up-tempo melody while the players and umpires agree that this particular part of the chorus –

Eeya-eeya eeya eeya-eeya

– remains both “timeless and universal … definitely not exclusive to 1978.”

According to the same press release, they also approve Debby Boone’s hair, which “remains attractive despite resembling a cumulonimbus cloud rising above a prairie fire,” and the concept that all we are is dust in the wind.

Great call, Dan Gladden. But Mr. Vincent isn’t the only musician of note (pun tremendously intended): On bass is G.E. Smith, of Hall & Oates and “Saturday Night Live” fame.

Old videos are the best, aren’t they?
