LIVERPOOL — It was forty-two years ago today…arguably the greatest album of all time was released. In honor, letâ€™s revisit the set list (and sorry, no cut-out mustaches, for those of you who remember your parentsâ€™ LP):
SGT. PEPPERâ€™S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND: Averaging about a dozen fans per game, the The Florida Marlins must be very lonely indeed.
WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS: The subtitle to Barry Bondsâ€™s home run record.
LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS: Doc Ellisâ€™s theme song.
GETTING BETTER: Posadaâ€™s back, Texieraâ€™s hitting, A-Rodâ€™s hitting, CMW seems to be over his early season jitters, the Yankees are in first place in the AL East.
FIXING A HOLE: This could be whichever team ends up with Jake Peavy in their rotation, but for now itâ€™s got to be the 2009 Mets: F-Rod is perfect in save chances, with a .076 ERA
SHEâ€™S LEAVING HOME: The NCAA Womenâ€™s Softball World Series is worth a look if you havenâ€™t checked it outâ€¦though why canâ€™t these girls wear actual hats instead of visors and headbands?
BEING FOR THE BENEFIT OF MR. KITE: There will be a show tonightâ€¦Yanks-Tribe is the Monday Night Game on ESPN.
WITHIN YOU WITHOUT YOU: Something went within Manny, and now the Dodgers are without him.
WHEN Iâ€™M SIXTY FOUR: Jamie Moyer will reach 300 wins.
LOVELY RITA: The Meterâ€™s running on how long the hype machine continues to pound on the Orioles’ wovely Wieters.
GOOD MORNING GOOD MORNING: Patriotâ€™s Day in Boston, you get the Marathon, and you get a ballgame before noon (at least out here on the West Coast, the game starts at 9 am).
SGT. PEPPERâ€™S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND (reprise): Why arenâ€™t there any Silly Sym-phonies in major league parks these days? Wouldn’t that be pretty cool?
A DAY IN THE LIFE: I read Meet the Matts today, oh boy. Tell your friends, Iâ€™d love to turn you on.
There you have it. As always, it’s wonderful to be here, it’s certainly a thrill. You’re such a lovely audience we’d like to take you home with us. We’d love to take you home.
