MLB All-Star Game 2007 Commercial
Hello there, loyal readers, I am Jordan M., co-founder (along with the idea man and guy-behind-the-guy, Pop Newmo) of the 'choke and I'm proud to host the inaugural edition of "Clip of the Week", a segment that should become a weekend staple 'round these parts.
This week's clip is a nationally televised commercial for the 2007 MLB All-Star Game (coming up on July 10th, check your local listings!):
What's really interesting to see are the guys that were nowhere near good enough to make their league's squad through the first half of play this season, like Andruw Jones (hitting a dismal .203 on the season, though with a respectable 15 dingers) or Lance Berkman who is hitting .264 (also with 15 homers). Other players featured in the commercial that didn't make the cut (complete with nicknames that I'm making up as I write this): Joe "Sideburns" Mauer (but I voted for him), Ryan "Chubs" Howard, "Juicin'" Jason Giambi, Roy "10-3 Ain't Good Enough?" Halladay, Jason "Bomb" Bay, Nomar "No More Allstar Games" Garciaparra, Barry "Bust" Zito, Jimmy "Rockin'" Rollins
But the best part of the commercial, by far, has to be the GIGANTIC SMILE on Vladimir Guerrero's face as he is halfway jogging up to catch the trolley. Priceless.
By the way, I've got the National League in this one.
