We’re big Timmy Kurkjian fans here at The Legend. Great baseball insight. Passionate guy. And, perhaps most importantly, not a guy who takes himself too seriously. There’s a lot to be said for humility and the ability to laugh at oneself…particularly when someone’s riffing off your schtick.
As a side note, this was one of our favorite Kurkjian explosions of all time.
So, fast-forward to this week. Here’s Texas Rangers catcher JP Arencibia doing his better Kurkjian impression on ESPN’s Baseball Tonight set (a skill his worked on over the years). The best part is Timmy taking it all the good-natured fun on the split-screen.
Note to Arencibia: Keep working on it. Good start. Need more DRAMA.
Favorite line: “I talked to three scouts and a cousin…”
LOVE Tim’s reaction. So good.
