Controversial I know but I'm about to reveal the true meaning behind the Whistle song by Flo Rida. Why? Because I'm getting the general feeling that people around me are really missing the true spirit of Mr Rida's epic masterpiece...
|We're getting right into the real Flo, yo.|
However this time these people are so incredibly off the mark, that there aren't any marks left within 100ks.
The song, 'Whistle' by Flo Rida...is actually about netball.
|Flo Rida loves netball!|
You see it's a little known fact that Flo Rida is actually a fully qualified netball umpire and a massive supporter of this sport. Ever since he could rap, he could netball. His best friend in school? A netball. And when he graduated from Florida Tech, he majored in both Musical Theory and Netball with majors in umpiring. Now obviously there's a lot more money in becoming a rapper than there ever will be umpiring netball, but it's good to see that he's remained true to his (netball) roots. And just like 'Right round' (which is another song about netball, namely throwing a netball 'right round') 'whistle' takes a look at the glory of an action packed game of netball from the perspective of an umpire.
Only this time Flo Rida is singing about the beauty of training up rookie umpires and the importance of proper whistle blowing technique when calling fouls and starting rounds.
|He gets so animated when he umpires! 'You! Toe the line!'|
Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby
Let me know
Girl I'm gonna show you how to do it
And we start real slow
You just put your lips together
And you come real close
Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby
Here we go
It's a wonderful passage of Flo Rida passing down the secrets to sharp and succinct whistle blows to those new to the umpiring biz so that those on court can hear it. And being such a gentleman, Flo has even offered up his own whistle for demonstration.
|A student of Flo Rida's. And look at how effective she has become!|
My whistle ready to blow
You see, he's ready the instant a game of netball breaks out, anywhere. That's the sign of a true umpire, one whose ready to officiate the game at the drop of a hat. That's Flo Rida baby, whistle man extraordinaire!
Show me your perfect pitch,
You got it my banjo
Talented with your lips, like you blew out candles
He even shows appreciation of the effort put in by his students, passing out compliments to encourage more in depth whistle development.
|A fit umpire is a good umpire.|

26/7/12 I'm really not sure what the hell this is all about (I mean apart from the obvious fact that it's a kid on Youtube swaying around to the song...oh and I like how he's just copied and pasted a massive slab of this post to explain what it's about...where's my credit you crazy little munchkin?). Still, he does point out in my copied explanation that it's about Netball so I guess that's something...
Massive ups to Rap-up.com!
Debate is raging over at beaut.ie blog!
