This so called song contains foul language and atrocious grammar from start to finish as well as the use of the controversial "N" word; though in the so-called acceptable context we have been duped to believe is "artistic expression.

The most famous student of Ball So Hard University strutted in front of a throng of reporters Wednesday. And naturally, he wore a black Ball So Hard University T-shirt as he explained where his school spirit came from. "A lot of guys on this team attended Ball So Hard University, including myself," Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "The dean of students and president of the school is actually Shawn Carter," better known as Jay-Z. Suggs created an internet sensation before Sunday night's 23-20 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers when he said his alma mater was “Ball So Hard University” as the Ravens defense was introduced in a NBC graphic.

Darren O'Day is set apart from other relievers by his sidearm delivery, his own version of the “Ole” song, and his 0.92 ERA, among other things. And he can add another to the list. “I have a couple things going for me, and now I have a T-shirt,” O'Day said Wednesday, when the Orioles gave out orange T-shirts with his “O'Day” song and a silhouette logo of his sidearm delivery. “It's pretty exciting. I never expected a T-shirt.” O'Day pitched a scoreless ninth inning in the Orioles' 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, his 10th scoreless outing in a row. He has allowed one run in 14 appearances since the All-Star break, and he has struck out more than one batter per inning this season.
