We've all seen it. You click a link expecting to go to an interesting news story, a picture of an adorable kitten or something you don't want the wife to know about, and, instead, you find yourself at YouTube watching Rick Astley sing "Never Gonna Give You Up".
Well, now there is an effort to take this to a whole new level. The New York Mets decided that, in honor of the final season of Shea Stadium, they'd let the fans decide what music to play in the middle of the 8th inning. So a dedicated, and rapidly growing, movement has begun for the largest Rick Roll in history. That's right. There is a chance to get Rick Astley played at every Mets home game all year long.
So, if you like Rick Rolling, or just hate the Mets, please feel free to join this noble crusade.
Rick Astley should only be played when the metrosexuals in Pinstripes from the Bronx visit Shea.
As a Cardinals fan, you have my support.
The songs suggested by the team include “Build Me Up Buttercup”, “Brown Eyed Girl” and the current leader (and song they currently play) “Sweet Caroline”.
If anything a Rickroll would be a more rugged alternative.
Iv’e been Rick Rolled twice now.
I’m still having nightmares!
i was expecting to see rick at that link there and you got me with a Muppet Rick Roll, Damn!!!
That’s 3 times now.
I believe the answer you seek is "You're Welcome"
