Wilmington is Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes Above The Rest

Good afternoon.

This morning, my article on Minor League World Records “went live” on MiLB.com. You can check it out here. The article included some first-hand observations from the Wilmington Blue Rocks’ “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” world record attempt, but there’s much more where that came from.

The following video, put together by my friend and occasional NYC comedy collaborator Jake Goldman, documents our evening in Wilmington:
 

I think the video came out well (Jake did a great job of putting it together) but there is plenty of room for improvement. I am making this all up as I go along, in terms of how these Minor League trips are planned, funded, and documented, so bear with me here. I appreciate any and all feedback, just keep in mind that I will always be my own worst critic (so, yeah, I am more than aware of my sloppy appearance and mumbly-mouthed speech patterns).

There’s nothing I can to do except to keep trying, so I’ll get out to the ballparks as often as time and money allows. I appreciate all the invitations and hospitality that have been extended thus far…it is my ultimate goal to create a nationwide network of friends, acquaintances, fans, and mentors, and to never have to pay for a hotel room. Paying for things is for suckers.

Nice video and puns. some of the people had toes on their shoulders.

Celery. And I thought our jalapeo mascot was odd. At least Ballapeo is spicy and hot. And he’s friends with a puffy taco.

A lot of those people don’t know how to do the song. Shameful.

Was this done after the game? Seems kind of long for between innings.

What a fun event and video!! Thanks to both of you for sharing it with us. Great cap too!
