A Guide To Recognizing Your Commodores

I’ve been otherwise preoccupied the last couple weeks, but the final portion of my season preview (which you can read here) and the Week Behind, Week Ahead series will continue soon. In the meantime, I received a special treat from America’s top Baseball Ops guy, Drew Fann. Fann sent over the definitive list of walk-up songs in use for the 2013 Vanderbilt Baseball season. In conjunction with some requests I’ve received to provide a primer to the Twitter hashtags associated with each player, I present a guide to recognizing your Dores.

Click on through to give a read.

For those unfamiliar with the basics, each player is permitted the right to select a song that will play in short form (for when they come to bat) or longer form (for when they are warming while entering the game as a pitcher). Some folks choose wisely (like Tony Kemp), while some are Jared Miller (much love for you, JMills, but Taylor Swift is not acceptable).

With respect to the hashtags, there is a spirited universe of Vanderbilt baseball fans who follow the team on twitter. In addition to the main and @VandyBaseball account which provides regular updates, folks can follow local media personalities like @ChrisLee70 of VandySports, @JeffLockridge of the Tennessean and @JeromeBoettcher of the Nashville City Paper. Or you can follow the hashtag friendly stylings of me (@VUHawkTalk), @____Stu____ and @VUGymRat. While the more official guys eschew the use of hashtagged nicknames, some of us indulge in the name game.

Hashtags are also used for in-game action. The most common example of that is the #VanderBunt, a reflection of our proclivity to lay down the less tasteful straight sacrifice and the more aggressive bunt-for-hit. The greatly enjoyable alternative to this is the #VanderSqueeze, perfected by such folks as Connor Harrell, Jack Lupo and Mike Yastrzemski. A recent nominee is #GrandTheftCommo, for our often double- and sometimes triple-steals. But now for the players. We’ll include the twitter handles of the players, where available.

    I have no website up yet but “Skewed Up” is in it’s development stages.

    Thanks for the summary of your stuff.

    You asked for input so, as Yul Brynner would say, “So shall ye seek, so shall ye be given.”

    Walk-up songs: Since I instantly recognize only 1 of them, all I can say is if you don’t appreciate Coldplay then you have zero musical tastes. Coldplay leaves me hot.

    Other suggestions for #hashtags from me, the#CrazyOverlyPassionateVandyFan.
    One must be somewhat ancient to appreciate some of these.

    Beede …. #BD
    Beuhler … #NoDayOff
    Campbell … #TopCat
    Conde … #VietConde
    Delano … #ThePrez
    Ferguson … #Fergie
    Fulmer … #PhatDaddy
    Gregor … #KingOfBalls
    Kemp … #Cheetah
    Lupo … #Jacko
    BMiller … #NoChance4Batters
    Pfeifer … #BigPP
    Ravenelle … #RavinRav
    Smith … #2Way
    Stephanson … #TheRealMcCoy
    Swanson … #OBDanswanKenobi
    Turner … #ProfessorX
    Wiel … #StickWeilder
    Wilson* … #NevaahHitta OR #TheOtherNa(e)vin
    Wiseman … #TheSage OR #TheMagicMagi
    Ziomek … #Zman

    * Nevaah comes from: heaven spelled backwards is nevaeh (drop the e and change to a and Nevin becomes Navin)

    Additonal hashtags to propose (all are Coldplay songs):

    Official Scorer … #Yellow, #Lost!, #MovingToMars, #ThingsIDon’tUnderstand, #TwistedLogic, #UpWithTheBird, #FixYou
    Eric Jones … #SnoozeButton
    VandyDore75 … #TheScientist, #CarefulWhereYouStand, #LifeIsForLiving, #UsAgainstTheWorld
    Tim Corbin … #VivaLaVida, #DeathAndAllHisFriends
    Garrett Walker … #TheHardestPart
    Scott Brownie … #HelpIsRoundTheCorner(s), #DeathAndAllHisFriends
    Travis Jewett … #JewBoy
    Larry Day … #ADayInTheLife
    Hawktalk and NYD … #Moses

    Twitterless #Vandyboys #GotNoSwag ):

    Buehler should be @No_Day_Off_Beuhler
    and Raasch should be @Ritzy_Raasch_Cracker

    Oh the irony of this particular writer getting a biblical hashtag name. :)

    I did forget that Spencie had a second hashtag last year of #HeHatesTheseCans (referencing the Steve Martin classic “The Jerk”).

    Close…but it’s actually ½ in honor of Moses Martin, Chris Martin’s son with Gwyneth Palthrow … Chris, of course, is the lead singer for Coldplay.

    The other ½ is the Moses to which you refer.
