The interview with George Brett is tremendous fun. Once you get past the three minutes of boilerplate charity-is-great, MLB-is-great, Brett tells some wonderful baseball brawl stories, shoots down Simmons’ “kids these days” attack on “chasing rings” with clarity and charm, and demonstrates admirable perspective in recalling his great 1980 season and thinking about the difficulty of hitting .400 in the contemporary media environment.
The Matt Kemp interview takes some time to spring to life, and it’s weakened by Simmons’ evident lack of knowledge of the the Dodgers and strong preference to talk hoops, but eventually he prods Kemp into trash-talking Magic Johnson and challenging him to a game of HORSE. So that’s fun.
