Say what you will about Eric Byrnes.
Make fun of him for his dumb hair. Make fun of him for his Spicoli-like appearances on Baseball Tonight. Make fun of him for the way he practically comes out of his skin when he makes the throw from the outfield to home.
But don't make fun of him for his choice of music. I loved this weekend's Mets series against the Diamondbacks for two reasons.
1. The Mets won two out of three.
2. Every time Byrnes strode to the plate, I got to hear a snippet of The Outfield's Your Love. Could this be the best intro music of anyone in the majors right now?
If only Brynes could convince Carlos Beltran to change his song. I think Beltran has had the same damn song for three plus seasons now. I'm sick of it.
From a quick look at a blog dedicated to the man and his hijinks, I've discovered that Byrnes has said that he will start growing a 'stache every time he begins a new hitting streak and has dubbed 2008 The Year of the Moustache. I love this guy!
