    Johnny Bench Does A Harry Caray Impression

    During last nightís Boston Red Sox game, NESNís Heidi Watney was interviewing Cincinnati Reds Hall of Famer Johnny Bench about his new book when all of the sudden he busted out a Harry Caray impression.

    He is my all time favorite player but he is no doubt IMO a very strange man.

    Looked like a few Budweisers ala Caray as well.

    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Johnny is rarely sober at these types of events. I doubt this was an exception.

    There is another video floating around on youtube where Johnny was asked by a college age kid about Pete getting in to the HOF. His response was pretty ugly.

    Heidi didn't seem too comfortable with Johnny ad-libbing.

    Methinks Johnny less amusing than hethinks.

    Hilarious. Based on his excitability and exuberance, I have to imagine a slight bit of alcohol may have been involved.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Hey, who hasn't done a Harry Carey impersonation? Drunk or sober.

    Looked a bit like JB was auditioning for a broadcasting job; giving the score and a little play by play until breaking into his rendition of Harry Carey.
