Mike Pelfrey spent several years in Queens as a member of my beloved Mets. As much as he often pained me with his on-field performance, he was always a stand-up guy. Pelfrey is now a member of the Minnesota Twins and pitched his college days at Wichita State. He’s a big Shockers backer. So, his teammates decided to take advantage of Big Pelf, who is generally fairly quiet and reserved, by putting him on the spot to fire up the #1 seeded Shockers just prior to their appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
The catch? He didn’t see it coming. And, oh yes, it wasn’t actually the Wichita State basketball team on the phone.Gardenhire is great throughout. The clip is awesome in its awkwardness. Plus, the dude seated on the chair trying to contain himself could be the start of the show.
Great stuff all around.
