Wife's Email: "Do you know who Joba Chamberlain is?"

Postby knapplc » Fri Jan 04, 2008 3:26 pm

So I'm here at work and the wife sends me this email. We live in Lincoln where Joba played his college ball, so I respond, "Do you? And if not, how do you not know who he is?

Long story short, she didn't know but thought I might. She works for the University of Nebraska's public television station and they're doing some sort of show about Joba and they needed to fill about 25 seats for audience members. Of COURSE I said I'd go. His agent told the station they didn't want to do any autographs or anything like that, but we'll see if I can get a picture or something with him. It should be kind of cool. ;-D

Sweet, you should go wearing one of those "Yankees suck" t-shirts.

They want us to wear "normal" clothes. No Husker gear, no Yankees gear, etc. So I'm sure that means no anti-Yankees gear, too. ;-)

You should be dapper wearing a pink Lacoste shirt and we'll know who you are. ;-D

As for Joba, ask my other 12 Angry Men mates. They didn't know him until I picked him up on waivers. :-D

It's pronounced Jah-buh. The K is silent.

I love that sig.

Well, not only did we get to go to the taping of this show today, we sat in the front row, and afterwards we got to meet Joba and I got him to sign a ball. The guy is completely cool.

The Yankees fan next to me was about ready to jump out of his seat when they announced that Michael Kay was the host of the show. Living here without the Yankees network or the New York media market in general, I had no idea who this guy was, but I'm sure many of you do. Kay was pretty cool, and he did a decent job, but he kept his hand on his face the entire interview, which was kind of weird. He and Joba were really hot under the lights, too. If you watch the show, try to notice between the first and second segments - Kay was sweating so much that his collar got dark. :-b

There's a pretty good, touching story in this show about a friend of Joba's who died when they were 11, and how the number 8 has special significance to him. It's pretty weird how all of his numbers throughout college, the minors and even in the Bigs all add up to or subtract down to 8.

If you get the YES network and you watch the Joba episode of YESterdays, the wife and I are sitting in the front row to Joba's left. When they introduced new guests they all walked past us to get on stage. I'm wearing a grey long-sleeved shirt and the wife is wearing a green top. So maybe I'll be on TV in NYC. I think that's going to have to count for my 15 minutes, though. :-D
