My friend Phil Rockrohr says that she used to play 'Rudy Can't Fail' by The Clash for Rudy Law.

I love Mick Jones.

I remember "I fought the Law and the Law won" as well (same could be played for Vance Law - my favorite White Sox player as a kid).

Nancy is the only person to make me think fondly of Dancing Queen by Abba (she played that song pregame before all of the playoff / World Series games last year).

I remember laughing out loud when she played "Let's Get Physical" as Omar Vizquel was coming up to bat. Outstanding play on words...

Nancy is so good at what she does that it's easy to forget many of them.

A favorite moment for me was about 10 years ago, when two girls climbed/fell out of the seats in the LF and went trotting across the field. While the game was held up and the security guys escorted them out, Nancy was gently playing the old Sammy Davis, Jr. song, "What Kind of Fool Am I?" :cool:

"In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" for Pete Incaviglia ranks right up there, though. :D:

Oh,boy.Where to begin!

I like her redndition of "Lake Shore Drive".And every time a visiting team changes pitchers,she plays Alka-Seltzer's "Plop,plop,fizz,fizz.Oh,what a relief it is!",song.

On the Sunday game against KC she played the King of the Hill theme for Bobby Jenks. Also she played that Irish jig song for McCarthy.

"Itsy Bitsy Spider" for Glenallen Hill, IIRC.

I remember her doing that, and then playing it slower than a funeral dirge after he hit one out...

I could not stop laughing when she did that.

One of my favorite clever turns Nancy did was to play "tavern in the town" every time Jesse Barfield came to bat.

I laughed when she played "Puff the Magic Dragon" when Carl Everett came to the plate on Thursday May 4th.

I remember in the mid 80s, while visiting patbooyah's dad's show, she kept humming a song to Steve and Garry that she said could catch on bigger than Na Na Hey Hey. She didn't know the name of the song, or the words, and Steve couldn't figure it out either. Turns out it was "Rock and Roll (Part 2)" by Gary Glitter.

Now I don't know if Nancy ever took credit for it, but I know the Pistons adopted it in the late 80s, but that was years after Nancy's insight.

IIRC it was Tommy Edwards who introduced it at Bulls games.

Though that song should be permanently retired after the conviction of Gary Glitter for sleeping with pre teenagers in Vietnam.

Nothing is bigger than Kiss Him Goodbye. Not even Bad Bad LeRoy Brown.

Knowing every song with the word "Rain" in it during a rain delay. She's genius, absolute genius.

Why are you going away Nancy, why?!?!?:whiner:

When Albert Belle was with Cleveland and in the off season he ran down (figuratively) some teen agers with his truck who egged his house on Halloween.

Belle got in to trouble with authorities for going after the teens with his truck in a wreckless and dangerous way.

When Belle came to the plate the following season Nancy played the theme song from COPS...."Bad boys, bad boys....watcha gonna do when they come for you!" :D:

Many years ago the Sox were playing the Red Sox and Don Zimmer was their Manager. He came out to pull the pitcher walking that slow wobbly walk that he does and Nancy started playing the theme song from the Alfred Hitchcock show...he glared up to the press box with that big wad of tobacco in his jaw...it was hysterical!

GO SOX!

Didn't Nancy used to play the Shoop-Shoop song when the Sox changed pitchers? I always liked that. I also liked when Nancy would play any number of Beatles songs such as The Long and Winding Road when the Sox walked someone or Help! when the Sox were in a tight jam or Eight Days a Week for any player with the #8.

I always liked when she would play the SUPER MARIO BROS. music whenever one of our guys stole a base or made an outstanding base running play. :D:

Nancy Faust came to the Sox the year I turned 13 and came of age as a Sox fan (despite the baseball carnage). She provided me with the soundtrack for my teenage summers. Picking a favorite Nancy Faust moment would be like picking a favorite moment with a dear friend of 36 years.
