Sir Foster, the Atlanta Hawks' organist, played 'Pony' thanks to our Internet campaign


UPDATE: IT HAPPENED. Video on top of the post.

Original post:

-- Sir Foster, the Hawks' organist, is our favorite organist in all of sports, for his amazing story and his willingness to play various pop and hip-hop songs on an organ over an arena's sound system instead of repeating "Charge!" every possession for all eternity;

-- Sir Foster is generous enough to consider requests and talented enough to play random songs on short notice;

-- The Hawks are playing in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Wizards tonight at home, yet another opportunity for a national TV audience to hear Sir Foster jamming while the Hawks play;

-- And there is one song every human being on earth enjoys, and that song is "Pony" by Ginuwine.

-- With all these things considered, we would like to officially request, as a website, that Sir Foster play "Pony" at tonight's game. We believe this would a) spread awareness of Sir Foster and his talents and b) allow people to hear the sounds of "Pony," which will make people happy because "Pony" always makes people happy.

We will happily take a rain check if tonight's playlist is already set or if it's too hard to play "Pony" on short notice. If you believe in this campaign, please tweet #Pony4Hawks to @Sir_Foster. It's a movement. We can make the world a better place.
