It’s October and you know what that means. Well, I guess that depends on how you feel about baseball. For us, on a good year, it’s the beginning of the playoffs. On a not so good year (like last year and the year before), it’s the end of the Red Sox — until next spring.
But, surprise! It’s been a good year and the Red Sox have clinched the American League East division, so we’re in it for at least one more round.
And it’s the right time to play the class bit of Americana from Abbot and Costello. WHO’S ON FIRST is Abbot and Costello at their funniest. They used to run this in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown on a continuous loop. They’ve remodeled the museum and much to our disappointment it’s not there anymore. But maybe it will be back at the museum someday. In the meantime, here it is.
We can all use a laugh.
