I didn't think it possible, but that was worse than "The Expendables".

did Jerry Hairston just make an 'Over the Top' reference?

Wow, that was about as hilarious as Kevin Bass's impersonations.

Derek Holland's Arnold was OK although it was more "pump you up".

And -- what the F is Sutcliffe doing in a Cubs uni ... and he's put on a bit of weight.

I know it's four years since diagnosis, but maybe Sutcliffe is still on some meds for his colon cancer that adds weight. I'm sure his ability to exercise has probably been compromised.

Not that he was a picture of slim in his Cubs days.

Hairston's Stallone impression wasn't bad.

I had no idea Sutcliffe had colon cancer.

I actually think it's possible that I have not seen a single one of the movies referenced in this clip (including Expendables 1 & 2)
