Twitter Litter: Murphy Lee Roots for the Cardinals, Nelly Rants on Comic Book Movies
Getting your celebrity gossip from "TMZ" is soooooo 2009, dude. Each Thursday in "Twitter Litter," RFT Music rounds up the week's best meltdowns, ego battles and WTFness from rockers, rappers and DJs who aren't afraid of a little hashtag action. It's time to take out the trash.
We don't often discuss SPORTZBALLLLLL here at RFT Music (eh, it happens), but even we know it's awesome that the St. Louis Cardinals (including some of history's sexiest) are heading to the NLCS yet again. A Game 5 win after an evenly matched, hard-earned series with the Pittsburgh Pirates tastes pretty damn sweet, and we're not the only ones who think so!

Our hometown hero Murphy Lee (@murphylee) usually closes out each edition of "Twitter Litter" with wise words, but the dude was excitedly reppin' at last night's game, so we're giving him opening honors:
And we're not sure if Murph filmed this during David Freese's or Matt Adams' home run, but we're sure glad he caught it:
Not everyone is as excited as Murph about a Cardinals win, though. Ben Gibbard (@gibbstack) had high hopes for the Pirates, history's perpetual underdog:
My sports universe where big market/bloated payroll are the Bad Guys and small market/payroll are the Good Guys really needs a Bucs W today.— Benjamin Gibbard (@Gibbstack) October 9, 2013
Do the Cards count as having "bloated payroll"? We don't think so, but whatever. Some of us grew up back East with the Pirates as our hometown team, so we feel Gibbard's pain. But it's still nice that the Buccos shook off that twenty-year losing streak, yeah?
Murphy Lee isn't the only local musician getting some sports action. The St. Louis Blues apparently have been playing Greek Fire (@greekfireband) during games, according to fan tweets that the band retweeted:
Plus Tef Poe (@tefpoe) is now a Blues fan:

If sports and music keep making sweet love like this, we might have to make room in our concert tees dresser for a jersey or two. Quelle horreur!
