That’s it. It’s over. We don’t need anything else. We’re good.
Television anchor Bob Costas was on the MLB Network discussing Robinson Cano’s decision to sign with hip hop mogul Jay-Z’s new sports agency when he was put to the question: “Who’s your favorite rapper?”
His answer involved disclaimers to children and lines from a Ludacris song and deserves to be played on loop in a special room in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown until the world is but ash:
Well, you know, I have to give props to Ludacris... he was the first one to name-check me in a song... For you youngsters out there, we’re not encouraging this behavior... now kids, this is just the lyric... ‘I be rolling torpedoes, get blunted with Rastas... and for a hefty fee I’m on your record like Bob Costas.’
The song Costas quoted is Ludacris’ “Hip Hop Quotables,” and of course, you need to listen to it right now (Costas’ quote is at the 1:12 mark):
Costas said that after hearing his name in the song, he could get “hit by a bus” and die knowing he’d lived a full life. After hearing him quote-rap Ludacris lyrics about “getting blunted” on national television, everyone can now feel Costas’ sense of accomplishment.
Bring on the bus, Lord. We’re ready to go now.
