This clip has been all around one end of the Net and back up the other. But the first time I saw it, I determined that no important series — aye, perhaps no single game — should commence without a ceremonial viewing of the Remdawg playing air guitar.

In an effort to conjure the appropriate good vibrations for tonight’s Sox-Yanks mash-up, we ask that you, too, indulge.

So click. Smile. Worship. Prepare. And remember, kids: Giambi’s a tool.
