Gammons comes alive

Get out your credit cards, folks! The long-awaited debut album from the Hall of Famer himself, Peter Gammons! Album is titled "Never Slow Down, Never Grow Old." Wait, this is Peter Gammons we're talking about? The Peter Gammons who can barely walk and allegedly wears an adult diaper?

Album features vocals from Theo Epstein, Bronson Arroyo, Trot Nixon, Tim Wakefield, and the rookie sensation himself, Jonathon Papelbon. I'm just shocked to see Gammons line up some current and former Red Sox for this thing. Shocked I tell you. I mean, when does Gammons ever talk about the Red Sox?

Laugh all you want, but tell me you aren't a little curious to hear what Gammons sounds like. Here's an article about the process of making the album.

Close your eyes and picture these lyrics coming out of the mouth of the man who loves to discuss the Double A prospects of the Milwaukee Brewers:

''She fell from heaven.
She fell from heaven.
She fell from heaven.
And landed . . . on her face."

I'm having a hard time refraining from laughing every time I look at the picture of Gammons on the album cover trying to rock out. At the very least, if the rock star thing doesn't work out, he can always go back to posing for the $20 bill.
