71 days after a 70% laceration of his Achilles and #65 is back in the lineup somewhow.
Are we invigorated, hopeful, concerned, awed, and slaves to a cult of personality?
Yes all those things, listed here in song form.
a) Mark Morrison - Return Of The Mack
Maybe this mid-90's R&B classic captures your mood?
Baby, now I got the flow
'Cause I knew it from the start
Baby, when you broke my heart
That I had to come again, and show you that I'm real
b) Kanye West - Jesus Walks
The son (or adopted son) of god himself stepping in to save the season.
c) The Smiths - How Soon Is Now?
If you read this post from @Jonana yesterday and have a little apprehension about the whole situation.
d) M83 - Moonchild
For those that accept the "wizard theory" and just need something appropriately epic to mark the occasion.
e) Världens Bästa Karlsson
Or maybe you're just a sucker for a classic.
