Will Meat Loaf Make You Sick?

Well, the election is in the bag--Romney has gained the endorsement of Mr. Loaf (as the NYT once persisted in calling him), otherwise known as Meat or Meat Loaf.  Yes, the large, aging rocker emerged from under the dashboard and came out for Mitt today, in Ohio, naturally.   He explained:  “There has storm clouds come over the United States.”

He also said that Obama saying "the Cold War" is over was the most ridiculous thing he'd ever heard.  When Romney came out on stage, he said,  “I mean, Meat Loaf was here.  Can you believe it?”   Yes, and no.

Funny story.  Back in the 1980s, I was on a team (as a ringer for WNEW radio) that played Meat's team in a NY softball league.  He insisted on being the pitcher, of course, arguing with the ump all the time.  One night, he hit a hard ground single up the middle where, playing the unique softball position of "short field," I fieldef it cleanly--and threw him out at first base!  You should have heard the trademark bellow that followed from that direction....
