Rams running back Steven Jackson pointed out this glaring deficiency to reporters after Sunday’s loss [to the Seahawks]. Jackson asked the scribes to petition the stadium-operation types to play more lively music.
Of course, that’s what is missing–hip-hop!
How can the Rams expect to turn things around without a change in music application?

How can these Souljas Boys be expected to perform when the commercial interludes aren’t jumping, yo?
The road to the Super Bowl starts with a clef, a five-line staff, and a bleeped-out rhyme.
Wow, between that, the mocking/ironic use of the word “dawg” in the headline, and calling Akon “Akron,” looks like it’s Dan O’Neill for the cornball win today.
