I was a star when your mother was your age
Outside of the National Anthem, no song is played more at sporting arenas than Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll (Part II)."
Lately, Brit pop stalwarts Blur have made some inroads with "Song 2" (wooo-hooooo). Queen always maintains a presence, with "We Will Rock You." Gay, femme, predator ... not exactly part of the family values code so many sports fans hold true.
Child porn fan Glitter is in trouble again, held in a Vietnamese prison after allegedly having sex, at his vacation home, with two underage girls (one 12-years-old).
Assuming Glitter gets residuals from his 1972 hit, doesn't it follow that sports fans have helped fund his pederast lifestyle? As someone who attends about 15-20 baseball games a year, I'm as guilty as the next guy, so why not play some Sly and the Family Stone once in awhile?
