ESPN Fantasy Baseball Commercial

Postby Mercer Boy » Sun Mar 18, 2007 1:35 pm

Sorry if this is posted elsewhere...but this is the dang funniest commercial I've ever seen...HAHAHA!

How the heck did they get Bronson Arroyo, Sheffield, and Geddy Lee from Rush to do this thing???

And Peter Gammons on guitar...too much! :-b

I know people hate his analysis but I love Kruk. :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

A couple of years ago, at Roger Ebert's film festival, a member of the audience asked Arthur C. Clarke why he wrote 2001: A Space Odyssey and he answered 'a big, green monolith with dollar signs on it told me to'

That is a funny commercial though...

I thought it was dumb. :-o
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

Haha, sorry...I know I have the mindset of a 12 year old. O:-) But seriously...Geddy Lee in a fantasy baseball commercial? That's awesome. ;-D

Does anyone know who the Indians guy is playing the weird keyboard guitar? Maybe it's Cliff Lee...that way they could get 3 guys named Lee in there. :-D

You guys need to develop a taste for kitsch :-b

I liked it, and I agree that Kruk is awesome. I'll miss his bantering this year on BT with Harold.

How's Harold's lawsuit going against ESPN by the way?
