I’ve lost my baseball due to BT taking over ESPN in the UK from Sky! In my misery, I am reblogging this for the benefit of UK readers who do not know the classic ‘Who’s on first?’ sketch. (Or, like me, know it and enjoy watching it time after time!)
“Who’s on first.”–Bud Abbott
Note: If you have never seen Abbott and Costello’s “Who’s on first?” routine, one can only draw one of three possible conclusions. You’re from a country that does not play baseball, you can’t speak English, or you’ve been living under a rock your entire life. Maybe all three. For your benefit (and I assume you speak English if you’re reading this blog) and for anyone who needs a refresher, the video link to that classic appears at the end of this article.
Storm Throne…Rougned Odor…Sicnarf Loopstok…these are only three of the 75 names entered in minor league baseball’s seventh annual Moniker Madness competition, to chose the best name (read: most ridiculous) in the game.

No purging of my hopelessly cluttered mind would be complete…
