Mr. Belding Karaokes The Day in Reading

Thumbnail image for readingblue classic.jpgDennis “Mr. Belding” Haskins was the guest of honor at last year’s “Mad Tight ’90s” promotion in Fresno, and ever since he’s been leaving a jovial trail of destruction across the Minor League landscape.

The “Saved By the Bell” principal’s most recent stop was Reading, PA, where he did just about everything a celebrity guest can possibly do. In addition to the obligatory autograph signing, picture posing, and ceremonial first pitch throwing, he also went ahead and sang the seventh-inning stretch, made impromptu appearances in nose-breaking post-game player interviews, and enthusiastically praised the state of Pennsylvania before delivering his “What Is Going On Here?” catchphrase.

And, of course, there was the karaoke. Haskins is a karaoke professional of sorts, having released a sing-a-long cd last year. Let’s go to the pictures.

R-Phils players were delighted to meet America’s pre-eminent principal:

The legendary comedian was honored with his own bobblehead at yesterday’s Las Vegas 51s game.

Somebody get me a crown and a two-wheeled scooter, because I am the king of segues.
