Re: Johnny Bench Got Me Hammered
And I do think the joke was funny. But the rumor keeps cropping up like a canker sore every few years, and I'm still not 100% sure of the source.
Growing up I heard in two places: my mother told me that Bench's ex-wife said he played pool all night on the evening of their honeymoon, and I also heard Andy Fuhrman make a joke about it when Rose was going through his mess.
So I'm being pretty unfair to the guy because I don't even know.
If you're watchin' a parade, make sure you stand in one spot, don't follow it, it never changes. And if the parade is boring, run in the opposite direction, you will fast-foward the parade. --Mitch Hedberg
