Ban's a bit harsh. The guy or girl has expressed his or her opinion which they should be free to do. As far as I can tell it and the replies have not breached the REDSZONE rules.
That being said I still give it a big :thumbdown
Seems like a waste of creativity. Especially as it now has that horrible song stick in my head.
Get your nunchucks and the keys to your dad's car. I know where we can get a gun
Natty, not your best work (don't get discouraged, though).
But still folks...lighten up. IT'S A PARODY.
Next we'll read how insensitive Weird Al was to the Amish.

It amazes me how people like this even think about calling themselves a Reds fan. I cannot understand not pulling for every player on the team, whether you like their performance, personalities, etc., or not.
First, God Bless America I welcome the opportunity for others to express viewpoints that might be contrary to mine (and obviously so inferior )
But isn't it amazing how we've all (myself included) become such experts, so cynical, so desiring the next great thing (all the young, unproven guys) while so quickly willing to throw out the old???...give a guy a computer, the link to some statistics and a long period of Reds mediocrity and we're all set...
I live near Orlando and although I'm not a big Magic fan, I hear/understand all the frustration at the "Grant Hill era" in Orlando...it's all to eerily similar to KGJ's time in Cincy...but to wish for Griffey's time here to end and to be happy about it just puzzles me
As the Reds have floundered along this decade, the 1 thing to enjoy is Griffey doing his thing...the most beautiful swing in baseball, the amazing catches, the clutch hitting, the star power...are his skills in decline???...absolutely...should he play in RF???...yes...has it hurt us when he's been hurt???...of course...
But I'd rather blame our failures on little things like the fact our aces this decade have included Jimmy Haynes, Paul Wilson and Corey Lidle (RIP)
I'm not a huge numbers guy, though I appreciate the value...but my eyes know what they know...I'm better off having gotten to see Griffey play in a Reds uniform...the Reds are better off having Griffey playing in their uniforms...heck, even last year the effect was dramatic...you don't think it would still today take enormous pressure off of Hamilton, EE, Dunn and Phillips to have #3 in the lineup???
Rest the hand Grif...come back healthy...have a wonderful season you are still capable of having...and let us admire you for being 1 of the top 10 greatest players in history, let us admire you for being the primary example of "respecting the game" in an era of guys who took shortcuts to achieve legendary status...
Most of all, let us try to avoid crucifying the best thing the Reds have had this decade when all the other things let us down (pitching, defense, clutch hitting by others, managing)
You cannot defeat an ignorant man in an argument!

Duck and cover Natty.
Hoping for another Reds October
I doubt I'll ever apologize for bashing Griffey. But I am sorry this one came across as so mean-spirited and unfunny. Thanks for all the feedback, good and bad.
Natty Redlocks, I enjoy your song parody's. All of them.
While this may not have been your best work, I appreciate the humor you show in them.
Everyone else: Lighten up, Francis.

Your Mom is happy.
I think everyone here understands that this is Redlocks signature move on the board. He does often intend his songs to be humorous etc... However, in reading many of his posts his disdain for JR's so-called attitude is apparent. Sometimes we forget due to injuries that JR has done a lot of good for the Reds.
1. He could have retired after tearing the hamstring off the bone, yet he underwent experimental surgery and had 4 titanium screws inserted into the bone to reattach it. Plus the hours and hours of rehab where his leg had to be held in an akward position to heal properly.
2. I remember a game in which a boys grandfather had a heart-attack in the stands and died. Griffey heard about this and insisted the boy come to the dugout. He also invited the boy back to a future game where all the players showed this child an awesome experience.
3. During the HOF game Griffey was a big reason Stenson's son Kobe threw out the first pitch during the game. He contacted the HOF specifically to request this honor for Kobe. Kobe than hung out with JR in the dugout during the dreary rain filled game. Most players would have ducked out.
So if you are going to be critical of someone for a so called prima-dona attitude at least know both sides of the story before passing judgement.
Amen, couldn't agree more. Is Natty a huge Griffey fan? No. Has he done many Griffey p-a-r-o-d-i-e-s? yes. Has he done parodies about other players? yes. Am I looking forward to the next one? YES Is it nice to see something new and creative instead of "George Grande is horrible" (which I have actively participated in) YES
More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.
