I'm gonna Yah Mo Burn this place down

    When I went to pick up some printouts at the communal printer yesterday, the first thing I saw in the stack was a two-page printout of Michael McDonald's Wikipedia page.

    My first reaction, was to laugh out loud and question who would do such a thing. I then immediately e-mailed a couple friends who I knew would enjoy this discovery.

    One of them came up with the glorious idea to print out said Wiki page at his workplace. Then he sent an e-mail to all his friends to do the same.

    Some of the reactions we've heard of from co-workers have included ...

    -- a boss finding it and stopping everything he was doing and trying to discover who would print out such a thing

    -- someone finding it and saying, "If I hear Yah Mo B There one more time, I'm gonna Yo Mah Burn this place down."

    So, loyal readers of SportsJournalists.com, I've decided it's time to take this thing national. So far, the only name I've come up with is "McRolling," an obvious spin on Rick-rolling. Feel free to give me a better name for it.

    Anyways, here's the link ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_McDonald_(singer)

    Get printing!

    And be sure to post any amusing reactions here.

    This is why I never start threads on here.

    I'm much more of a follower.

    There are copies of the Michael McDonald Wikipedia page sitting at several printers in my newsroom. With any luck, numerous newspaper people will start singing Takin' It to the Streets to themselves...

    Doobie Brothers are the halftime of the Orange Bowl.
    Who sings Michael's parts?

    Whoever he is, there is no way he can match Mikey Mac.

    My prediction: They don't touch his songs at all.
