Deion Sanders Collaborates With Snoop? Merle Haggard's Got Song About Wash? Yes and Yes.
|The Old School Brother.|
For starters, recent Hall of Fame inductee
Neither, it should be noted, is the new Merle Haggard song, "That's The Way Baseball Go" -- although, well, this one is a little weird. Yes, it very much is a play on Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington's accidental/awesome catchphrase. Yes, it's a a re-working of Haggard's "That's The Way Love Goes," which was originally penned by Left Frizzell. Yes, its lyrics were written Weird Al-style by Texas Rangers co-chairman Bob Simpson, his wife Janice, and Fort Worth's Jim Hodges and Jackson Yandell. And, yes, Haggard did actually record it. That's just -- as Jay-Z and Kanye West might say -- "cray." But it's all true. You can buy the song here. It's for a good cause, at least: All proceeds are going to the Texas Ranger Baseball Foundation.
