More Things Like This, Please

This is Keith Olbermann interviewing an actor portraying Christy Mathewson about what really happened during – no giggles, please – Merkle’s boner.

I don’t know why this isn’t a more common-place gimmick: imagine Babe Ruth going on about how good ballpark hot dogs were in the ’20s, or Joe DiMaggio dishing out some naughty Marilyn details, or Ty Cobb in a roundtable on whether Matt Kemp or Ryan Braun should have won the MVP (That would sure be a fun discussion). I think a casting call is in order, Baseball Tonight.

And yes, Olbermann’s moustache is funny.

MLB Network should have a nightly show like this.

MLB network should be doing more in general. This would be a great example.

Too broad. “More in general that doesn’t involve Mitch Williams, Billy Ripken or Harold Reynolds in any way at all.”

So was boner not slang for boner back then?

Nope. It just meant “stupid fuckup.” It didn’t achieve its current tumescence status until the 50s.

There’s also still Merkles Boner, the text based adventure somewhere.

My firewall blocked Merkle’s Boner. Seriously.

This why the Cubs are the Cubs, forever covered in CubStink.
