A late ALCS Game 1 Remark

I totally forgot to mention this from Game 1 of the ALCS, but then again, given the way it ended, most cool stuff went out of my head.
There was an inning where Alex Rodriguez was leading the game off. When he was walking to the mound, Chuck Morgan played the old “Who” song, “The Kids are Alright”. I roared with laughter, as I was probably the only person in my area that got it. I had to explain why I was laughing. Said something like this..
Remember the remarks Arod made immediately after he was traded to the Yankees before the 2004 season? The remark about “It felt like me and a bunch of kids”? Chuck bringing that up subtly like that with the song “The Kids are Alright” was a stroke of genius.
I believe he’s done that before for Arod, but it was great to see it in the playoffs. I wonder if anyone else caught that.
