The Ballad of Tom Henke

Published by Toronto Mike on March 5, 2008 @ 14:46 in Blue Jays Songs, Toronto Blue Jays

bluejaysI wrote about Tom Henke yesterday and Stephanie suggested I insert "The Ballad of Tom Henke". I didn't want to bury such a great song in the comments, so this entry is all about "The Ballad of Tom Henke".

"The Ballad of Tom Henke" appeared on the same Blue Jays compilation that gave us "Jays to the Top", "Sunny Jays" and, of course, "OK Blue Jays (Let’s Play Ball!)".

Term-in-a-tor, Term-in-a-toooor...

Odeo is having temporary issues, if this audio isn't working for you right now, that's the reason...

Hmmmm, it seems to work in IE but it's not working in my Firefox. Anyone wanna tell me if they can hear this and what browser they're using?

I can hear it fine in FF 2.0 on Windows Vista.

That song remains me of "A Boy Named Sue" by Johnny Cash hehe

It's working for me in FF2 now. Musta been a temporary blip.

Yeah, it's definitely got that Boy Named Sue feel to it.

You can bring him in now but he's even better later.

That's gold, Jerry. Gold!

Just realized I wrote "remains me" there - don't know what I was thinking but maybe it has something to do with my lack of sleep :p.
