U2 Mention of SportsCenter

Either last night or this morning's (can't remember which, I have a one-year old that wakes up at all hours, so the days just run 2gether) SportsCenter had a U2 reference:

The sportscaster used some "40" lyrics in describing some MLB player's 40th home run of the year. It went something like " (Players's Name) .... How long to sing this song? 40!!! (Player's Name) hits his 40th home run of the year!

I thought it was cool.

It would be cool if not for it being so out of place.

Agreed. But in the wee hours of the morning, it still made me smile.

I saw that, too! I LOL'd. I like SportsCenter exactly for those random pop culture things they throw in there.

Would have been better when Big Papi hit his 40th, especially the "see & fear" part...but that is pretty cool.

I'm guessing everyone saw the old Sportsguy article on espn.com, about "who's the U2 of sports?"
