The tradition began 2 seasons ago when principal owner Stuart Sternberg decided to play a popular Saturday Night Live skit on the Trop's video screens featuring Christopher Walken as music producer Bruce Dickinson insisting he needs more cowbell. The scene is a spoof of a VH1Behind the Music segment on the rock band Blue Oyster Cult recording the song "The Reaper." Will Ferrell is hillarious in this skit as well...check out YouTube for different versions of the original, but here I posted the link below to one of them...too funny! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Mie9hhQTUM I went to game 2 of the World Series last night, and I must say there were ALOT of LOUD COWBELLS!!!
