NBC SportsTalk: Where will Hamilton, Bourn and Swisher end up?

Dec 13, 2012, 7:34 AM EST

I was on NBC SportsTalk last night. Talking about where Josh Hamilton, Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher will land — as well as the reason the Yankees keep signing old guys to one-year deals — was fun. But not nearly as fun as dropping a “Pina Colada Song” analogy on Eric.

And speaking of that, why wasn’t Rupert Holmes allowed to play that 12/12/12 concert last night? Every other old act in history was there. Even Billy Joel, who is the Rush of New York New Jersey singers.

Oh well. The Who were cool. Roger Daltrey (a) dropped the F-bomb in “Who are You”; and (b) looked a lot like late period Ric Flair. And neither of those things are criticisms.

    Who is Rupert Holmes?

      That was a serious question. I have never heard of him.

    “Billy Joel, who is the Rush of New York New Jersey singers.”

    Billy Joel is a musical genius, has a banner hanging from the rafters at MSG and is the only artist to have played old Yankee Stadium, Shea, MSG and the old Meadowlands. Inner-circle Hall of Famer, Class of ’99.

    I didn’t even know there was a concert until my Twitter feed exploded about it.

    I don’t know that I’ve ever watched a segment and gathered less information. Impressive sir

    Craig, what’s with all the hate for Rush?

      Some men just want to watch the world burn.

        We didn’t start the fire.
