Phil talked to Bob Captain, former major league play-by-play guy, about Albert Pujols hitting his 500th home run. Captain recalled the story of Shirley Jones (not the actress), a big home run hitter in minor league baseball for the Northwest Texas Wonderboys, who jacked his 950th (or something) one day. When the fan who got a hold of it refused to return it to the team other fans chased him down, nearly stripped him, and almost beat him to death and got the ball back. The thing of it was no one to this day knows how many home runs Shirley Jones hit. Phil meanwhile sounded like a Bozo abroad not being able to pronounce “Pujols.”
Phil flipped out on the equipment….again….talking about how “all this” he thinks he is as an audio engineer….as his phone was ringing while his mic was open and he couldn’t turn it off. Alright!
And Margaret thrilled the assembled with her version of “Shot in the Dark.”
