Wezen-Ball

Miami's Sound Test

by Larry Granillo

As the comments on my last post prove, a clear issue with the video released Monday of the new Miami Marlins home run sculpture coming to life was the lack of stadium celebration music being played in the background. Without it, we weren't getting the full "Marlins Park experience" with their brand new, beyond-unique home run feature.

I heard your complaints and took it upon myself to help us get closer to what might be the full Marlins Park experience two weeks early. Watch the video below to see the home run sculpture's performance, as set to some potential celebratory tunes. Sure, some (Gloria Estefan, "Magnum, P.I.") might be more likely than others ("Mad Men", "Arrested Development"), but we have to think outside the box on these things. Clearly the Marlins were!

Personally, my favorite is the "Game of Thrones" intro, but I'm also really partial to the Star Wars Cantina Band as well. Both seem to match it in a completely unforeseen way, though that can probably be said for each of the songs.

Whatever music the Marlins decide on, I imagine I'll be quite happy with it. After all, look at the spectacle that it'll be accompanying!
