Happy RUSH Day!

Today (2/1/12) is RUSH day.  If you haven’t been a rock and roll fan for the past 40 years, you might be confused by this, but let me fill you in.

2112” is a seminal album by the Canadian prog rock trio RUSH.  Released in 1976, it is considered one of the band’s greatest works and was their first real commercial success.  The highlight of the album is a 20-minute opus, taking up all of side one, consisting of seven pieces describing a dystopian tale of intellectual oppression.

So what does this have to do with baseball?  Well, bassist and lead singer Geddy Lee happens to be a huge baseball fan.  Here’s a collection of links to Lee’s fandom:

So, Happy RUSH Day (and Happy “A Little Over 2 Weeks Till Pitchers and Catchers”).
