Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 5-23-2014

Toledo News-Bee, May 23, 1914:

Steve Evans, the comedian of the Brooklyn Feds is unique in his humor. During the baseball trip around the world Steve had fun with a lot of people, some of whom do not know yet what he was doing.

In a London hotel lobby two English gentlemen of the most pronounced type occupied a sofa, earnestly discussing some business or political question. Steve..strolled over…and remarked:

“I beg pardon, gentlemen. Am I intruding upon a private conversation?”

“Not at all, not at all,” one of them politely lied.

“In that event,” remarked Steve calmly, as he arose, “I don’t care to hear it.” And he strolled away.

Retroactive high five, Steve. Well played.
