Tim McGraw + Def Leppard = Epic Fail

I can't possibly understand what the hell goes on in the production meeting where someone picks the hot new Def Lepperd/Tim McGraw single to use as the theme for the NBA playoffs. But I think I have a decent idea.

↵Seriously, people in charge. This can't continue. Either go with the 80's throwback and let them play a song we all know but normally won't admit singing too, or just bring in someone hip. And if you think either Tim McGraw or Def Leppard are hip, well, Lame.↵
