Smells Like Mets Spirit: A musical tribute to Brodie Van Wagenen

Who doesn’t enjoy a good song parody? Popularized by Weird Al Yankovic, Stephen Lynch, and many others with access to a rhyming dictionary, the art of turning a popular song into satire is one way to spread cheer and maybe humiliate a few people in the process. The 2019 New York Mets provided us with plenty of topics to satirize.
