File this one under “What Would Gabe Paul Listen To”?
This morning I was stuck in traffic on I-287 north-bound – there was a huge glass spill that backed up traffic for about 8 miles.
As I’m sitting in traffic, I notice a FedEx truck in the lane next to me, about three or four cars ahead. The truck was dirty – covered in dust. Someone wrote on the back of the truck, with their finger, in the dust, “Ridin’ Dirty.”
I laughed when I saw that. Times have changed since when I was a kid. Back in my day, that FedEx truck would have been a target for “Wash Me” – but, “Ridin’ Dirty” never existed then…heck, Hip-Hop didn’t exist then either.
This made me think of the references where Yankees G.M. Brian Cashman disclosed that he listens to Hip-Hop.
That makes me feel very old. But, it also makes me wonder – do you think Big Stein has ever left Cashman’s office humming DMX’s “Where The Hood At?” without realizing it?
