The Cycle

Rickrolling strikes America’s pastime

A couple of weeks ago, Keith O’Brien wrote here and here about rickrolling. (Full disclosure: I find this absolutely hilarious, but I have been told I have a very strange sense of humor.) The other day, I got a link to this page on Digg inviting people to rickroll the Mets by voting for the Rick Astley ditty for the team sing-along. Apparently the song is the top pick, thanks to the legions of voters who can’t get enough of “Never gonna give you up.” One anchor on the New York morning news, Roger Clark, lamented the choice. I’ll be laughing all season long.
