Geddy in the Toronto Sun

Post by awip2062 » Mon May 22, 2006 9:40 am

Our man was at a ballgame again (go figure that one, eh!) and this was in an article in the Toronto Sun:

"Jays catcher Gregg Zaun makes no secret of his music interests or the fact that he is a huge fan of the band Rush.

So at a recent Toronto game against the Oakland Athletics at the Rogers Centre, Zaun was sufficiently psyched when he learned that Rush bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee was in attendance.

Zaun, whose first plate appearance each home game is accompanied by the Rush tune Limelight, asked the stadium audio crew to play Limelight for all of his plate appearances that night as a tribute to Lee.

"I was watching him as I walked to the plate to see if he noticed but he was talking to someone the first time up," Zaun said. "The second time, though, he stood up and applauded. That was so cool."

Onward and Upward!
