As many of you know, I was a professional baseball player. I’ll be frank with you, on each ballot where I was eligible I didn’t make it into the Hall of Fame. And the balloting wasn’t all that close, though I’m grateful to several writers for their kind consideration. 🙂
I’m okay with that verdict, but there’s another couple of guys who’re also not in the Baseball Hall of Fame, and in my humble opinion they ought to be.
It’s Abbott and Costello, and it’s because of this that they absolutely, legitimately ought to be in the Baseball Hall of Fame:
It’s because of this alone that they should be in the Hall of Fame.
I’ve watched this a hundred times, and it’s never been not funny! Ridiculously, uproariously, tears-producing funny!!!
