 Cool article, I'd like to draw your attention to Ireland's effort for Italia '90 which used Horslips' Dearg Doom for music...

 thanks for that comment jimfitz! i don't particularly like footballers making music (it's much better when musicians play football) and that horslips song is unfairly cited as representative of their career by some (their high watermark) which is... bullshit, of course. not saying you said this with your comment but had to reply coz i'm happy to see the slips mentioned in any context. the slips are amazing and their first four albums are the progfolk's dog's danglers.

 Why no mention of "Fog on the Tyne"?

 I wish sweet bands actually made good music for baseball or other American sports. The closest thing I can think of is Belle and Sebastian making the song "Piazza, New York Catcher." But they're Scottish anyway and somehow I have a feeling that a song about Mike Piazza possibly being gay doesn't exactly inspire the hearts of the San Diego Padres faithful. I mean, I guess Jeff Daniels (yes, THAT Jeff Daniels) made a song about the Tigers when they were in the World Series. But alas, Jeff Daniels is not New Order. Damn...what am I talking about?
