Apologies if this is 3/44 -- Cubs batting stances, past and present:
This guy has a whole series of batting stance videos up. A nice diversion on a day off.
I found this gem this morning...
Form about 1984 it looks like, former Padre pitcher Mark Grant doing impressions of 1980's umpires, including a few of my favorites such as the late, great Eric Gregg, Dutch Renner, and John McSherry. Good for a laugh, if nothing else.
not bad...if he peed on his hands before the Alou one, I would have nominated him for the TCR Hall of Fame.
I noticed one for Microsoft Live Search on the right sidebar...it's pretty sweat actually, I used it yesterday.
Found it through Consumerist.com, similar to Google Product Search except they actually give you a percentage back on the purchase (pretty decent percentage) PLUS calculate shipping costs on the prices. Bought a Memory Stick for the wife's cellphone and got 4% back.
Only negative is that it's not nearly as a deep a pool of merchants as Google.
I saw this a couple weeks ago on another site.
He's pretty good - but I am told (as is alluded to) he does dozens of all kinds of players. He's a fan of an East Coast team (Red Sox? I can't remember), so its impressive that he knows the old school Cubs.
Moises Alou watched this video of the guy doing his batting stance impression and was laughing so vigorously he pulled a calf muscle and is going on the DL again.
I thought it would suck, pretty good actually. I wanted to see Jerome Walton, THAT was a crazy stance.
The mime-like quality of his performance added a nice touch.
