When you’re a baseball and politics blog, things get a little interesting when the baseball season ends and it’s an off year for elections. It’s like what you get in football when you’re up by four touchdowns with 30 seconds left to go. Even if I were put in the game to quarterback at that point, it would be pretty hard to lose.
Luckily, there’s an answer to garbage time and its name is YouTube. Today, in honor of Halloween, here’s a guy with waaaaay too much time on his hands. Which is not to say that it isn’t impressive:

What could be more spooky than changing locations for a pivotal game 3 on Halloween night? The answer: not much. I think I’d even rather face the terror of national health care than show up wearing Yankees gear in Philadelphia tonight. No matter which side of the debate you find yourself on, the fright of getting dropped from your health insurance because of a pre-existing condition or sending Nana in front of a “death panel” because her health is no longer viable sure beats the horror of beer and hot dog wielding phanatics.
However, no matter how insane Phillies fans may be, I am hard pressed to believe there is anything more scream inducing than listening to Joe “I don’t even pay attention to baseball anymore” Buck doing the play by play. Although they could have made it even worse by bringing TBS and the corneal abrasion that is Craig Sager in on the act. Even Michael Jackson couldn’t make that outfit look good.
What would be really nice is if just for one night they would bring in a voice that could give the World Series the gravitas it deserves. And since it’s Halloween I think you all know where I’m going with this. Exactly. We should raise Vincent Price from the grave and let him do it. Hey, it worked for Thriller:
