Bringing out the celebs
A flurry of last-minute scratches completely changed the lineup I posted yesterday, but let’s give it another shot and hope it sticks this time:
Right-hander Radhames Liz (1-0, 6.27) on the mound for the Orioles.
Seen last night
Movie star John Cussack was sitting next to the Cubs dugout last night. Amazingly, Cussack not only looks just like he does on the silver screen, but he also looks amazingly unchanged from his memorable role nearly 20 years ago in “Say Anything…”
Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, from the “Mike & Mike” radio show, threw out first pitches and sang the stretch. This was one of the more memorable ones, as the former NFL player, Golic, bounced his pitch into the plate while his desk-jockey co-host, Greenberg, lobbed a strike. Then Golic was the one doing the singing during the stretch before Greenberg was nudged into joining in.
Two amateur singers don’t tend to harmonize too well, but Mike and Mike sounded pretty good! And they had two great, outgoing personalities that made their on-air chemistry seem all the more genuine.
