Richie Parodies Hank Williams Jr To Salute Yankee Derek Jeter [VIDEO]
This was yet another labor of love - to pay tribute to a living legend who is hanging up his pinstripes and retiring his number 2. It was a big moment in sports history without question. It deserved a song!
Derek Jeter - the Captain ' has decided to retire. It would be both redundant and ironic for me to try to give you his history here. Redundant because you probably all about it already from other sources, and ironic because anyone who knows me knows that I have absolutely no working knowledge of sports in general. I am interested in the important, potentially historic events though, like this one, or the Superbowl or World Series. So with that in mind, I present a song parody composed and produced during our show, and done to the tune of Hank Williams Jr's classic - "Family Tradition" (Lyrics are below the video for you to sing along! )
(Parody of Family Tradition, by Hank Willams Jr..)
