Ted Thompson's Ring Tone

Screw the Favre trade talk...there are bigger issues here...like what do you think Ted Thompson's ring tone is?

If there were, G.M. Ted Thompson’s cell phone would be constantly belting out whatever ring tone he has programmed into it. (He strikes as a “Don’t Fear The Reaper” guy.)

Fascinating time killer to think about...Thompson's ring tone. IMHO, "Don't Fear The Reaper" doesn't fit the bill...let's dig deeper. What do we really know about Ted Thompson?

We know two main things:
-He is a cold, ruthless GM that takes pride in being right over the long term.
-He looks like Crazy Joe Davola from those old Seinfeld episodes.

So with that being said...I think the ring tone is obvious: It would have to be "Come Sail Away" by Styx.
"On board, Im the captain, so climb aboard..."
"Come sail away with me..."

These lyrics speak to his arrogance (he is stating he is the Captain and you better climb aboard) and his semi-davola-ish crazy factor (telling you to come sailing with him...a little weird).

Anyway, if you got a better idea for what Thompson's ring tone is...I'd FREAKING LOVE to hear it.
