Bill Murray, What Was That?
I’m going to nominate Bill Murray’s rendition of “Take me out to the ballgame” to replace Roseanne Barr’s national anthem as *Worst Thing I’ve Ever Seen a Comedian Do in Public.” I couldn’t believe what I was watching. Daffy Duck? Are you fucking kidding me? If his goal was to look like a moron, he nailed it.
This one was just before one of the 2010 WS games. Zumiee has a pretty great response, so I included it. Stix used to really set those bowling pins up, didn’t he?
Gonna actually WATCH the game tonight at a friend’s place. He was stationed in the Bay area during his Navy stint. They did lose to Philly when i viewed portions of the game at the local pub. But the place was mostly twenty and thirty something badly raised football fanciers who never got educated to the National Pastime. Too many parents employ the boobtoob as their first and primary babysitter, and as we all know, with all the smash-grab action football is very well suited for folks with short attention spans and miniscule appreciation for nuance.
Will be wearing a Giants Tee picked up at a sale somewhere back in time and a cap purchased in The City back in ’89. Not expecting any earthquakes in Texas and hoping that Bochy’s selection of Ishi and Nate works the same magic he has crafted so far this Post Season.
Imagine being front and center on the national stage in the middle game of the W.S. at the ripe old age of just barely 21. Believing that Bumgarner can handle the assignment and that the Giants hit Hunter.
“Gonna actually WATCH the game tonight at a friend’s place.”
Now, we’re talking, Stix! No more of this “I climbed a tree, and hung up a short-wave radio antenna made out of recycled bees hives, and used an ax to fight off an angry grizzly bear in the process” stuff. (grin)
