Alright if you watched game 1 of the World Series last night I know a big story today is Pablo Sandoval but in a sneaky way it's not. Like what was Tim McCarver talking about last night? Barry Manilow? I'd say it had to be a joke but I'm pretty sure he didn't say a word for 10 minutes after that. Like Buck put him in a time out or something. And that was just the tip of the iceberg. Dude made John Madden sound like Shakespeare last night. It got to the point where I was so thrown off that I stopped paying attention to the game and couldn't wait to see what McCarver was going to say next. I mean a guy hit 3 home runs in a World Series game last night. Only happened THREE other times in the HISTORY of baseball. Cars weren't even invented when baseball started folks. And still the story for 50% of the sports world this morning is McCarver getting his Harry Doyle on. He's either completely lost it or the smartest man alive and I can't decide which.
Also: Babe Ruth, Reggie 'Mr. October' Jackson, Albert Pujols, Kung Pu Panda. One of these things is not like the other. If I'm him I may well pull a Costanza and just get out on a high note. After you hit the third bomb just scream 'Goodnight everybody!' and walk off.
PS: Another thing I've been obsessed with since watching Game 6 and 7 of the NLCS in San Fran is this guy:
Dude is in the front row of every Giants game with a Marlins jersey on. Like is he a Marlins fan? Does he think the jersey color is all that matters? Is it Ozzie Guillen? Was he sent here from the future to warn us about something? I dunno.
Double PS: Did people know Tim McCarver has a jazz CD? Stumbled up on this while looking for the clip from last night. You do you internet.
