News You Can’t Use
This will only apply to anyone in San Diego who may have been, or should have been, watching the Padres-Brewers game on Cable4 tonight.
Former Cy Young winner and Padre announcer, now ESPN announcer, Rick Sutcliffe stopped by the booth tonight in the eighth inning to chat and was drunker than Christopher Hitchens on St. Paddy’s Day.
It was comedy gold. If anyone Tivo’d it…prepare to amuse your friends for weeks.
Particularly funny was Sutcliffe quizing announcer Matt Vasgersian about why he was still in San Diego which relates to the fact that the Padres wouldn’t let Vasgersian out of his contract to take over duties for the bigger market Cubs or Dodgers. Ouch.
