I’m a HUGE Metallica fan. I’ve been on an old school kick lately, so when I saw that the @Metallica twitter account tweeting with Nick Mangold, I was enthralled!
So it was actually a former Jets player, Steve Weatherford, who got the ball rolling with a tweet about intro music for when the team gets announced.
Metallica entered the sports world today when ESPN played a new commercial with the band portraying them as out of work, now that the Yankee closer Mariano Rivera retried. Remember, he would enter the game to Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”.
I guess the video got Weatherford thinking and then Nick joined in the chat online. The song Nick picked: “The Frayed Ends of Sanity” has an epic beginning. Go listen to the song below.
