    New Baseball-Themed Google Phone Commercial

    Anyone seen the new commercial for the Google Phone? It is hilarious.

    This geeky guy - obviously out of his element - is umpiring a Little League game. The pitcher throws the first pitch, and the ball hits the catcher's mitt. The entire field - players, coaches, and fans go silent - like the EF Hutton commercial - waiting for the umpire to call the pitch a ball or strike. Not sure what to call, the umpire asks his Google Phone what a "strike zone" is. The phone gives the definition and once the geeky umpire hears the definition, he calls the pitch a strike with great gusto.

    "I can still throw it in the 70s. And I can throw it in the 80s if I don't want to comb my hair for a week." - Bob Feller at age 66 when asked how hard he could throw.

    I thought maybe there was an app for calling balls and strikes.

    For a time, I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

    I did a quick search trying to find the commercial...and while I didn't find it, I did find this one. Love it!
