“Spaceman” Bill Lee Talks Weed, Running for Governor, and Josh Duhamel - Men’s Journal

“You’re supposed to sit on your ass and nod at stupid things,” the late Warren Zevon sang on his tribute to the former big league pitcher Bill Lee. But the free-spirit player, known to most as “Spaceman,” wasn’t about to do that — and it eventually cost him his career after a one-game walkout.
So you sat through the film?

Yeah, uncomfortably, in Montreal. It was funny, cute. I loved the ending, which has me pitching in San Rafael, kissing the ground. It doesn’t make me look like I’m on a prayer rug. Well, I am on a prayer rug. It’s called a ball field.

Howie Rose Interviews Vin Scully

17 minutes covering how Vin Scully got his start calling a football game from the roof of Fenway and riding the bus with the players in Spring Training and calling Hank Aaron’s home run #715.

I had trouble playing the interview in Firefox while it played fine in Chrome.
