Kissed With Apocalypse, NBA, The Rest

But please don’t take that assessment the wrong way, Frumpsters.  With those qualifiers, such a video could still be, generally speaking, pretty damn shitty, and that’s basically what we have after the jump. 

So yeah, a trusted source just informed me that North Carolina State alumnus John Tesh is responsible for that envigorating, nearly unforgettable jam/theme song for the “NBA on NBC”.  Yes, Wolfpackers, I’m afraid it’s true, and on both counts. Now, if an acquaintance, or even a complete stranger, had told me that over a pint or ten down at the local watering hole, I’d of called them a bald-faced liar and asked them to kindly leave.  Otherwise, fistifcuffs would almost certainly ensue, and understandably so. I mean, I just don’t take the alleged association of things like competitive sports and John Tesh lightly, and I’ve always felt such sentiment was perfectly reasonable…UNTIL NOW

You know, for me to believe such a claim under normal circumstances, it would probably take seeing documented video evidence of Tesh telling a capacity crowd how he composed the basic idea for the theme in his head; was so excited about it that he had to call his answering machine at home to preserve an oral, auditory record of his inspiration; prove that he did this by presenting the original recording on his answering machine to the audience; and then perform the fruits of said inspiration, the whole damn tour de force, live, complete with a small orchestra, dueling violin and guitar, and, of course, air dribbling.  Well, Frumpsters, rarely has the phrase “Be careful what you wish for” possessed greater meaning to me than it does right now…

    You didn’t know Tesh wrote this amazing melody?  I had no idea he went to Moo-U.  I guess NCSU should be happy that an alum has finally made an impact at the NBA level.
