That’s What Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki Loves About These High School Girls…
…he gets older and they still share the same tastes in cheesy pop music. Alright, alright.
Much has been made about Tulowitzki’s choice of at-bat music: “Party In The USA” by Miley Cyrus, so the Rockies shortstop decided to clear the air as to why he has chosen that particular teenybopper song during an appearance on Darren Smith’s XXX Radio program in San Diego, and the reason, while likely innocent enough, didn’t quite come out that way.
Here’s how it went:
Troy Tulowitzki: “Say, man, you got any Miley Cyrus songs?”
Darren Smith: “No. Not on me, man.”
Troy Tulowitzki: “It’d be a lot cooler if you did.”
Nah, just kidding. But I had to at least throw in one last reference to the great movie character (and the last great role for Matthew McConaughey) David Wooderson, right?
Here’s what really went down (via Sports Radio Interviews):
On using Miley Cyrus as his at-bat music:
“Yeah. Without a doubt. I have a lot of high school girl fans if you will. For some reason, that’s my fan club out there in Denver. Why not please them with a little Miley Cyrus. I don’t mind it at all. You keep the fans happy and you don’t worry about yourself, the less boos you are going to get.”
Word to the wise: never say “why not please them” when referring to a bunch of teenage girls. It doesn’t paint an appropriate picture. The next thing you know Tulowitzki will go on record as saying he enjoys online chats and Mike’s Hard Lemonade.
