Normally when I think of Metallica I think of Lars Ulrich being the downfall of Napster, along with head-banging metal music that will make your next door neighbor call the cops on you. So to find them doing a funny skit about their material becoming slightly aged, I have to give them props for rolling with the punches. Mariano Rivera who was a pitcher for the New York Yankees retired and along with him, so did his walk-out song "Enter Sandman". A walk out song in baseball is a statement of who the pitcher is and what kind of chaos he may be bringing to the mound. For Mariano, this song was a perfect choice. But now it's no longer echoing through the stadium, giving the guys of Metallica a bit of a conundrum: what do we do now that our song isn't being played anymore!? While a walk-out song is never live, always the studio version of a song, it's a funny SportsCenter commercial giving a nod to the band's longevity as well as unknown sense of humor. Check it out below:
