This is a little random, but hey, whatever works.
Anyone who watched the Phillies swing the bat yesterday realized their swing needed something.
Maybe more torque.
Instead, they’re bringing more Tork. Peter Tork, who was to the Monkees what Ringo was to the Beatles, will show off his 60-something singing skills (will he play his own instrument?) in the 7th inning of today’s game, crooning “God Bless America,” or as he apparently said in one interview (h/t the WIP Morning Show), “God Save America,” which I think was originally done by the Sex Pistols.
Tork has been making the rounds. He performed at the Red Sox pep rally on Monday. That made a little sense, since Tork is from New England originally.
But as far as I’m aware, the former TV star doesn’t have any Philly ties. I just hope he doesn’t miss any notes. Nobody wants to see an old Monkey (Monkee??) get booed.
