Does Ryan Howard Listen to Nickelback?
We asked Howard after last night’s 5-2 victory over the Braves about these allegations.
“Damn, that’s outrageous,” he said. “I didn’t know that. Is it bad to listen to Nickelback?”
I mentioned the sign probably wasn’t meant as a compliment.
“I mean, I’m not afraid to say that I diversify my musical portfolio,” he said. “I didn’t know they could see or hear what … how do they know I listen to Nickelback? I listen to everything. I don’t know if there’s a specific song by Nickelback (I listen to).”
Brilliantly, the Braves’ organist (@bravesorganist) played some Nickleback before Howard’s at-bats late in the game. He had been playing the theme song to “The Office,” because a character on the show is named Ryan Howard.
