Well that seems rather presumptuous.
 
2008-06-05 12:38:12 PM
Wow, that is really cool. Sounds like he has quite a remarkable collection, too.
 
2008-06-05 12:42:30 PM
That headline makes him sound nutty.
 
2008-06-05 12:46:53 PM
He should watch out. Without his balls, his voice might go high.
 
2008-06-05 12:50:57 PM
He wasn't using them anyway.

JerseyTim: He should watch out. Without his balls, his voice might go high.

CougarJeff: He wasn't using them anyway.

I came here to post essentially a combination of these two. :)

I just came here to say that Geddy is one of the most badass bass players to ever live.

Nabb1: Wow, that is really cool. Sounds like he has quite a remarkable collection, too.

He's a major baseball nut. I've seen him on TV sitting behind homeplate at Blue Jays games
 
2008-06-05 01:45:25 PM
i wonder if they'd be rather damaged... you know, from him getting kicked in the balls before every studio vocal take and/or concert.
 
2008-06-05 01:46:16 PM
Rush also donated money [$100,000] to the Human Rights Museum in Wpg.

He runs a couple of major fantasy baseball leagues, too.

Somewhere, I have a picture of him with his balls. Not here, though.

This seems like a good place to ask the question: Can a white guy (me) wear a Hampton Grays/KC Monarchs jersey? Always thought they were cool, but I could never figure out if that was patronizing or what.

dstanley: Can a white guy (me) wear a Hampton Grays/KC Monarchs jersey?

Certainly, if you're prepared to show people pictures of your black great-grandma.

He's doing really well for someone who's had throat cancer since the 70s.

What about the balls of Geddy Lee? How did they get so black?

His balls? What about the voice of Geddy Lee? How did it get so high? I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy.
 
2008-06-05 02:51:07 PM
My first greenlit submission !!!! Except Drew changed the headline to make it funnier. So I guess this makes my first fark edit too. Dont care for Rush, but this makes Geddy Lee cool in my book.
 
2008-06-05 02:56:37 PM
From what I've heard of Geddy Lee's voice I thought he donated his balls a long time ago

I once had geddy Lee on my email list for my fantasy website. He was in front of me at Spring Training, had no idea who I was, I had no idea who he was. We talked ball for a few innings and he game me his email address when he found I was "professional fantasy baseball."

He got up and left and I pocketed his email address. My friend who was normally a loud mouth and was quiet the entire time gets all excited, "do you know who that is?!?!"

"ummm 4­83729g[nospam-﹫-backwards]v­r­es­pmoc­*c­o­m?"
"That's geddy Lee?"
"great, who is that?"

He was quite disappointed I didn't know.

/rumor is Lee is in a fantasy league with Meatloaf
// someone swears Meatloaf dropped my name during a draft
 
2008-06-05 03:11:41 PM
I've been to the Museum and it's a tremendous place. Not just the baseball stuff but the personalized account of what some of these guys had to go through. It's a must see if you're ever in KC.

Geddy Lee does not sing like a woman.
Women sing like Geddy Lee.

He sounds normal. Not deep and manly, but you don't laugh at it.

Best bass player ever!

honestly can't believe I was the Weeners this.
 
2008-06-05 03:39:12 PM
Seen Rush twice, bass player (just got an MTD 5-string fretless), HUGE baseball fan, so I'm getting a kick in the balls.

// wait, what?

HA! I had no idea. next time I will just make it one word.

What did the filter change?

Baseball expertise, band training/conditioning expertise, is there anything this man can't do?

Mosey: He was in front of me at Spring Training, had no idea who I was, I had no idea who he was.

I can't believe Geddy Lee didn't know who you were. He must not hang out here, or surely he would.

you have the be the only fantasy sports geek on earth who doesn't know Rush or Pavement. What's next - you don't know how many hit points an Orc has?

You're all missing the important question....

Did he *dip* his balls in anything?

BOY OH BOY I SURE HOPE SO!

Lee may be a white bassist of a prog-rock group from Canadia, but he's down.
 
2008-06-05 04:49:20 PM
I live in KC and have yet to go to this museum. I guess I am a bastard.

You need a lot of balls to make a donation like that!

[hopelessly late to the party]

Mordechai: mofomisfit: Baseball expertise, band training/conditioning expertise, is there anything this man can't do?


Sing?


You know, I think this may be just a requirement for Canadian rock (at least the ones that get well-known in the USA). The only two Canadian singers I can think of off the top of my head are Geddy Lee and Neil Young.


/Rush is my #2 favorite band (Dire Straits FTW).
//It's an acquired taste.

Geddy is god
He has more balls



/that is all
 
2008-06-05 05:30:43 PM
IamSoSmart_S_M_R_T: /But that's still a self-induced forehead slap

don't beat yourself up. In every single thread where Rush comes up, Pavement surely follows...and then the fun starts

I love that damn song
