WOTSTS/MWNHIFPOTIPITPFTWEISQMQOBATADWIATS/MOWOHOOATDTSOS/MROTK?H?: "I Love L.A."


Time now to introduce a new feature here at Sport Is A TV Show, in which we provide a curious sportistic factoidlet and ask you, dear reader, "did you know" it. We're calling it "Were one to suggest that sir/madam were not hitherto in full possession of the information presented in the passage from the Wikipedia entry I shall quote momentarily, would one be accurate to a degree which is acceptable to sir/madam, or would one have overrated one's ability to determine the substance of sir's/madam's reserves of trivial knowledge? Hmm?"

So, "Were one to suggest that sir/madam were not hitherto in full possession of the information presented in the passage from the Wikipedia entry I shall quote momentarily, would one be accurate to a degree which is acceptable to sir/madam, or would one have overrated one's ability to determine the substance of sir's/madam's reserves of trivial knowledge? Hmm?":
"I Love L.A." is played following major sporting events in Los Angeles if the home team has scored or won. This occurs notably when the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Galaxy win and when the Los Angeles Kings score a goal during home games. In 2001, the XFL's Los Angeles Xtreme would play the song after they scored a touchdown, as well as when they won a home game. A Nike ad with the song was broadcast during the 1984 Summer Olympics held in Los Angeles. A modified version of the song was used for the 1985-86 TV season image campaign for ABC. [...] During the 2008 NLDS and NLCS, TBS or FOX would play the song at the end of any half-inning where the Dodgers produced a run. The song was also played over speakers when the Lakers arrived at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum following their 2009 NBA Championship parade.


Really? Wouldn't this be a bit like a team from New York or Chicago playing "Rednecks" after they'd beaten a team from the south?


These Romans are crazy.

lemme just go ahead and affirm this as a lengthy resident; indeed, it's all true, and then some. randy has the latino families in the crowds eating out of his palm after every win, it's fantastic.

Does an artist receive royalties every time their song is played in a public arena in the US? Even though Randy's probably rich enough from Disney money as it is (deservedly so), I hope they do. Though maybe he cleans up from just the sales of Best Ofs to people who just want that one song, I don't know.

And don't leave out what he makes from "God's Song" being played at every Brights meetup.

No-one's gone for some convoluted basketball/'Short People' gag? This disappoints me.
