Metallica’s SportsCenter Promo is Spectacular

Twenty years ago, you would’ve never seen Metallica taking part in pre-game ceremonies at Yankee Stadium or taking batting practice with the San Francisco Giants.

Then again, you would’ve never thought they’d cut their hair either.

Is it possible the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have seemingly mellowed out a touch as they’ve gotten older.  Consider this, they just appeared in an ESPN “This is SportsCenter” promo.

The problem with this kinder, gentler Metallica?  The spot is absolutely hilarious.

Shawn Anderson is that guy who, instead of sitting there talking about the game going on around him, is talking wise about the history of baseball. He believes baseball figures such as Tommy John, Harold Baines, Ron Guidry and Billy Martin deserve their own plaque somewhere if not in Cooperstown. You can follow him on Twitter at @HOVG.
