King Kaufman, Salon’s sports correspondent:
So I was thinking to myself, “What’s the deal with all this schlocky movie music Fox has been using on its postseason broadcasts?” Wednesday when the Fenway Park public address announcer introduced John Williams, the guy who writes all that schlocky movie music. He was there to conduct a subset of the Boston Pops for the national anthem.
The announcer called Williams “the epitome of our culture.”
And that’s when I decided to go live among the howler monkeys.
