"Making your way to the States today takes everything you've got.

Getting away from identity fraud sure would help a lot.

Wouldn't you like to play the game?

Sometimes you want to go ...

Where nobody knows your name,

But Tribe fans are sorta glad you came.

You wanna be where you can see,

You're no longer the one to blame

You wanna be where nobody knows your name.

You wanna go where people know,

people know how to play the game,

You wanna go where nobody knows your name."

(News item: Fausto Carmona ... er, Roberto Hernandez ... obtains his visa and joins the Cleveland Indians, but first must serve a three-week suspension by Major League Baseball for age and identity fraud).

(The original Cheers theme song -- the best TV theme song ever -- was written by Gary Portnoy and Judy Hart Angelo)


  1. That was awesome. Especially liked "tribe fans are sorta glad you came". I have this irrational hope that the "good Fausto, bad Fausto" days can be replaced with just "good Roberto", but I'm not gonna hold my breath on that one. Very nice custom though.

  2. Great post...I miss Cheers, it's on too late at night for me to watch it.

  3. Aw c'mon, you can get a little more artistic on your correction.. :)

    Like this:

  4. Hey, you either get little stories from me or artsy fartsy stuff. I ain't got time to do both.

  5. You should be with Mad Magazine.
    I'm guessing they're still plagiarizing tunes & poetry.
    (Haven't opened one in many a year). Cheers.

  6. they should let him keep his name "fausto carmona". He became famous to mlb fans that way -- plus do we need yet another Roberto Hernandez to keep track of?
