09:57 am - Oh, doctor!
It's Opening Day over at Friendly Fenway, and the local soft-schmock radio station at the convenience store was celebrating by playing John Fogerty's "Centerfield" this morning. Talk about wholly inappropriate for the occasion! I mean, everybody knows you only play that song during a player substitution.

In the spirit of talkin' baseball (from Maine to San Diego), I'll share one of the latest offerings from Improv Everywhere, the primarily New York-based group whose impish, harm-no-one-but-do-baffle-em-if-you-can stunts are now being copied by college students and Internet hipsters around the country. Apparently the group was courted by network television and filmed a pilot or two, which explains why they got the budget to be pull off this Little League prank entitled The Best Game Ever.

I won't say any more about the bit other than mention that the buildup is absolutely perfect and that the kids were completely thrilled, which is how all good shenanigans should end.

Okay, now stomp out numbers in Morse Code.

They also played "Dirty Water" and a "Fenway-enhanced" version of "Sweet Caroline". Bomp bomp bomp.

Good stuff. Then the blimp showed up and it moved into the "Positively Sublime"-category.

This is the second time that someone mentions Fogerty's "Centerfield" and I instead think of J. Geils Band's "Centerfold" even though I know perfectly well they're not the same song.

Great baseball prank! Loved it!

I was thinking of you last night...watching the only new show on TV these days, New Amsterdam. It is filmed in NYC and last night a lot of the action was filmed at Coney Island! They showed the Cyclone, and had the characters ride the ferris wheel twice! If you want to check it out, there's a Hulu link to see the episode for free at http://newamsterdam-forever.com/News/News.php
