Wagner is no more a Metallica fan than Rivera is. I have heard an interview with him and he admitted Jeff Bagwell picked it out for him. Plus MO had it first. Hopefully Wagner will be jinxed until he relinquishes the song.

Have you read anything in this thread? Wagner is a Metallica fan AND had the song 3 years before Rivera. Nice job getting your facts right.

Dear Einstein,

Read the thread. The article clearly states that Billy Wagner had the song played for him a full three years before Mariano Rivera. That's all I'll say on the topic. The rest has been discussed to no end. It's your choice whether you want to actually read or continue to live in ignorance.

With Love,

Reality Check

Yankee fan sighting !!!

Usuallly easy to spot. Just look for wrong information and blatant John Sterling-like homerism.
