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.
