Watch ESPN’s Personalities Recite The Gettysburg Address For Ken Burns

Via Ken Burns Filmmaker and guy who I tell everyone I’m related to when I want to sound smart, Ken Burns, has a new film about the Gettysburg Address entitled, The Address, debuting next Tuesday on PBS at 9 PM. (I believe we’ll have a drinking game for that.) For the film, Burns asked for some of the country’s politicians to help out by reciting the Gettysburg Address, and...

VIdeo: ESPN personalities recite the Gettysburg Address

My favorite college class was Civil War History.  Why was it my favorite college class you ask?  Because nearly the entire course consisted of watching Ken Burns’ famed Civil War documentary.  You can have Gus Johnson or Ian Darke or even Morgan Freeman to narrate your life, but I would take Shelby Foote above anyone else.  If you haven’t seen the Civil War series yet, and...

Three for the Show: First Basemen

This is the first in a 10-part series (no…I’m not Ken Burns) where I will identify the top three players at each position in the Padres’ minor league system. Up next: First Base. If the depth chart at catcher presents an “opportunity for improvement,” then first base can be considered a straight up reclamation project. Picture an abandoned town from The Walking Dead. In...

Ken Burns on the Hall candidacy of Clemens, Bonds and Piazza: “Those motherf***ers should suffer for a while”

One of the single greatest documentary series of all-time is Ken Burns’ ‘Baseball.’ It painted the beautiful picture of the sport which became known as America’s Pastime. It completely played up the romance that is involved with it, unlike any sport. If you have never seen it, you should. Burns is highly respected throughout the baseball community because of his knowledge...

The More Things Change…The Worse They Get?

I would never get through the endless cold dark winters if it wasn’t for old Mets videos and Ken Burns. Last night I watched Shea Goodbye: 45 Years of Amazin’. A great documentary, it details the history of the Mets at Shea. As I watched Ray Knight round third with his hands on his head after Mookie hit a slow roller, I saw something I had forgotten about: The patch on the uniforms...

Baseball Movie March Madness! - SEMIFINALS

As we pitted each bracket winner against each other in the quarterfinals, we expected the results to be a lot closer than they were. Shows what we know. We now have our Final Four, featuring three movies I absolutely adore, and one I'm not a huge fan of (but that has gotten a relatively easy draw so far). The Sandlot and Major League are battle-tested, playing through the two...

My Lastish At Bat

Just to prove I'm an equal-opportunity out-caller: I was watching the Ken Burns' Baseball marathon the other day, and Bill Lee was talking wistfully about his final at bat in a Red Sox uniform, before the designated hitter rule took the lumber pitchers' hands after the '72 season. He described a triple to right field. Al Kaline (who he said had bird crap on his shoulders...
