The Most Inappropriate Thing I've Heard All Year
Dodgers TV announcer Charley Steiner, formerly of ESPN, was for some reason chosen to sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" today at Wrigley Field. (Maybe whatever c-list 'celebrity' the Cubs had booked canceled, and they couldn't get one of WGN's news team to fill in at short notice.)
As the top of the seventh ended, Steiner ambled into the booth. He prefaced his song with some sort of dedication to the victims of Hurricane Katrina. After he sang, he ended with a line he'd used in an ESPN ad, originally uttered in Titanic: "Follow me! Follow me to freedom!"
I'm nearly speechless.
