I realized at some point during tonight’s thirty-seven hours of Home Run Derby coverage that I am actually not a fan of home run derbies. Before tonight I thought I was, but then I realized that I never actually watched a derby. It was always just something in the background, on the television, while I drank beer and talked with friends.
Having to watch it and pay attention was like turning on the lights after an amorous adventure with someone you’d only seen in bar lighting.
Anyway, the incident portrayed in the video below happened at one point, but I was so drained of enthusiasm by the twenty-two hours of Chris Berman losing his goof over every single ball making contact with a bat that led up to this one moment that I didn’t really appreciate it.
Update: No lie. This was pretty amusing too:
Thanks to Jose3030 for the videos.
