Baseball Fans Angry with Comedy Program

And it didn’t even involve Dane Cook!

The ``One night-two days’’ crew from the Korea Broadcasting System (KBS) visited a Lotte Giants-Doosan Bears game, a duel for No. 2 spot, at Sajik Stadium in Busan Friday, and its cast performed during cleaning time, which usually takes about two or three minutes after the fifth inning.

However, the performance lasted 10 minutes and players who usually warm up during the short span had to stay in the dugouts.

After that, the game continued, but the longer break affected starters, who had thrown to a scoreless tie over five innings.

Giants starter Song Seung-jun allowed three runs in the top of the sixth, and Bears’ Kim Sun-woo struggled with his command.

Cook is probably disappointed. Now that the bit is all controversial, he can't steal and repackage their material.

I thought this was going to about the NESN Comedy All-Stars.

Let's see karlmagnus spin this into being Theo Epstein's fault.

Apparently, there's no truth to the rumor that the lead performer for the "One Night-Two Days" crew is Ronan Tynan.

In a couple of weeks, you'll be able to run this headline about "Frank TV."

Just put quotes around the word "comedy" and you're all set!

And in case my comment in #3 was too subtle, both starters were former signings of Dan Duquette in his time with the Red Sox.

Beware an Iron Butterfly tribute replacing the 7th Inning Stretch...
