Jim Edmonds Is A Magician

Wednesday, September 03, 2008

I've seen a lot of things in Baseball, but I can safely say that I've never seen this before. Watch closely as Jim Edmonds tries out his version of the hidden ball trick at Wrigley Field....

That's pretty wild, but I was thinking it would have been even more awesome if it was someone's hand. How crazy would that have been? Jerome Walton's hand just falls on Jim Edmonds head and everyone in the stands turn to each other, nods and says, "oh THAT's what happened to him!" (sorry it's still early and the video pretty much spoke for itself)

Jerome Walton references are always welcomed. If you can squeeze in a Dwight Smith somewhere...even better.

Len Kaspar is a good announcer when things are calm and normal, but he gets a little too excited sometimes.

I was at the game and the first thing I thought of was a true heel play Moises Alou once pulled in left field. The ball bounced into the ivy and toward Alou's feet. Alou kicked the ball into the base of the wall and raised his hands as if to say the ball was hopelessly stuck in the ivy. The umps didn't buy it.

It's funny, though, that if there was a question about which ball was caught that it wouldn't be reviewable ... but if it was another foot deeper it would be.

What would have really been funny is if Bartman's head (complete with headphones) would have fallen onto the field.
