Harry Caray Budweiser Commercial (1985)
It's that time again, CotW time. And you all (I know there are hordes of you, dear readers) love it. Here is the clip of the week:
Yes, that's iconic Cards, White Sox, and, Cubbies announcer Harry Caray "dancing" around and "rapping" for Budweiser. More proof that the man was always drunk.
And how about that prediction? "'84 was just the start"? Really? In 1984 the Cubbies won their divison with a very respectable 96-65 record. In 1985, they finished fourth (77-84), in '86 they finished fifth (70-90), and in 1987 they wound up in sixth place with a record of 76-85. I guess I should note that they took the NL Central again in 1989, just in case my roommate is reading this. Rest in peace, Harry, wherever you are...
