It's Sticky Fingers' Birthday! Let's Celebrate With Some Rock and Some Cardboard


Aloha, everybody, 

Not only is it Saturday (TODAY!)...it's also the 45th birthday of one of my favorite albums of all time.



So let's celebrate this legendary album's cuts, and check out some cool cardboard that I've curated to match...

BROWN SUGAR



Brown Sugar goes out to the man who if ever a man would be named Brown Sugar, this guy could pull it off. 


Mr. World Series Hero, the man who brought the big blasts...




SWAY




Sway gets a double shot of the Tornado's famous twist...





WILD HORSES



Wild Horses goes to Yasiel Puig, who was nicknamed the Wild Horse by the venerable Vin Scully. 


CAN'T YOU HEAR ME KNOCKING



This one goes out to a couple of the Dodgers' prized farm hands who are knocking on the door to the bigs...



YOU GOTTA MOVE

This one is for the middle infielders who gotta move to stay alive...


BITCH

Love is a bitch. So's loving a player who despite coming up through the ranks and embarking on a  Hall of Fame career with your favorite team, later goes on to badmouth and disown that team and its fans. 



I GOT THE BLUES

The blues are all about losing things. I will forever have the blues over losing these two players who went on to have solid careers - just not in L.A. - where they started.



SISTER MORPHINE

The tragedy of waking up in a hospital bed unfortunately belongs to the one and only Campy...



DEAD FLOWERS 


Dodger fans and his former teammates will never forget the greatness that big Don Drysdale brought to the club. 


MOONLIGHT MILE

Sure, Wally Moon is an easy choice for Moonlight Mile, but then again, however else will his baseball cards remain alive on the blogosphere? 



Happy Birthday, Sticky Fingers. Aloha!
