A Fresh Start

In Culture on January 27, 2012 at 3:02 pm

A lot has happened in the the realm of pop culture since our last post here at Crim Del Harris: Penn State turned into Salem, Massachusetts circa 1692, the NBA lockout ended, and Katy Perry got divorced (and you still don’t have a chance).

We were ready to write brilliant, thoughtful articles on literally all of these things, but then we started watching Downton Abbey, and we just lost track of time.

But it’s a new year and a fresh start at Crim Del Harris. Look for exciting new posts every Wednesday. And to make up for lost time, he’s a collaboration with Billy Joel covering what we missed.

We Didn’t Cover This Stuff

Music: Billy Joel

Lyrics: (Thankfully) Not Billy Joel

World Series, David Freese, Ryan Braun, P.E.D.s
Selig’s back, Suh is dirty, Peyton Manning’s neck

Alabama, LSU, Tigers win game number 2
College bowl week, lots of winners, not Virginia Tech

Tribe hoops, in the muck, RG3, Suck for Luck
Strasburg, Danica, A.I. leaves America

Chris Paul traded, hockey, Missouri’s in the SEC
José Reyes, different Marlins, Prince goes to Comerica

CHORUS
We didn’t cover this stuff
We got really lazy
Ghosts like Patrick Swayze
We didn’t cover this stuff
Yeah we missed it back then
So we’re starting again

Eli Manning, Djokovic, TWAMPS think they can play quidditch
Aaron Rodgers, Carson Palmer, Haley gets tossed

JoePa, PSU, trouble for the white and blue
Al Davis dies, and the Packers lost

Saban, Big 10, NBA is back again
Rajon Rondo, New York Knicks, Maurice Jones-Drew, top draft picks

Tebow, Michael Vick, Justin Blackmon, Lions click
Matt Barkley, Nowitzki, Kobe’s got a hot shot

We didn’t cover this stuff
We got really lazy
Ghosts like Patrick Swayze
We didn’t cover this stuff
Yeah we missed it back then
So we’re starting again

Herman Cain, Federer, Kellen Clemens, Spurrier
Gabbert, Alex Smith, Lawrence Taylor pleads the fifth

Sanchez, New York Jets, no one wants to buy the Mets,
Off-road race in Sénègal, Tiger still can’t hit the ball

Cameron Newton, Bradford, Fitzpatrick, Marlon Byrd
Ball so hard, road game, Fausto’s got a new name

Drew Brees, Coughlin’s frown, undefeateds going down
Realignment, SEC, winning at Kentucky

We didn’t cover this stuff
We got really lazy
Ghosts like Patrick Swayze
We didn’t cover this stuff
Yeah we missed it back then
So we’re starting again

Derrick Rose, Flacco, feeling bad for Dwayne Bowe
Kershaw, Harbaugh, college boosters broke the law

Barry Larkin’s in the hall, how Lee Evans dropped the ball
Darvish, bull runs, NFL concussions

Dukies, Oscar noms, dream team out of Philly bombs
Pujols, A. to L.A., what else do I have to say

We didn’t cover this stuff
We got really lazy
Ghosts like Patrick Swayze
We didn’t cover this stuff
Yeah we missed it back then
So we’re starting again

Belichick, premier league, Moyer fighting off fatigue
Beckham, Welker, McIlroy, Jeter

Kiffin, Griffin, Pau Gasol, Indiana basketball
Dodgers’ roster is a wreck, and the discount double-check

Tony Shaver, Quinn McDowell, Jimmye Laycock’s old man scowl
Papelbon, Shahid Khan, Suns, Caps, Lindsay Vonn

Griffin does a stupid thing, David Schneider tries to sing
Pats and G-Men back for more, Cundiff won’t kick anymore

We didn’t cover this stuff
We got really lazy

Ghosts like Patrick Swayze
We didn’t cover this stuff
And while we were gone
This stuff went on, and on, and on, and on…

We didn’t cover this stuff
We got really lazy
Ghosts like Patrick Swayze
We didn’t cover this stuff
Yeah we missed it back then
So we’re starting again

We didn’t cover this stuff
We got really lazy
Ghosts like Patrick Swayze
We didn’t cover this stuff
Yeah we missed it back then
So we’re starting again

We didn’t cover this stuff
We got really lazy
Ghosts like Patrick Swayze
We didn’t cover this stuff…
