Here at SG, we like to give people the opportunity to respond to big stories in baseball or just criticize our own off-the-wall, booze-induced opinions. Here to discuss a big story that has been in the baseball news for years, is Emily Litella.
Emily Litella: I’m here tonight to speak in favor of Pez in Major League Baseball. I don’t understand why one candy is being singled out as the enemy of baseball. This witch hunt against Pez has to end. What next, popcorn and Cracker Jacks being banned from ballparks? How could fans even sing Take Me Out To The Ballgame once that happens? Major League Baseball should be embracing Pez. They could have cute little Pez dispensers with baseball players’ heads on them…
Emily Litella: Yes?
The story was on PEDs in Major League Baseball. Performance Enhancing Drugs. PEDs, not Pez.
Emily Litella: Oh. I’m sorry. Never mind.
**This was my little tribute to the comedic genius of Gilda Radner. For those too young to remember the original Saturday Night Live, do yourself a favor and check out the 1975- 1980 stuff, it was great. Hard to believe Gilda has been gone for 20 years. Like so many of the SNL greats, she was taken from us much too soon.
