As a kid in junior high, I always got a kick out of late night television's visits from Joe Garagiola and pre-scandal Marv Albert because they always brought sports bloopers with them. I really dug Joe G. because he was strictly baseball, and that was my game at the time.

I was stunned to uncover on YouTube, a summer '84 appearance of Garagiola's, bloopers and all, on the Johnny Carson show in it's entirety. I can't get over how good the image quality of this old video is. If you got 7:14, please enjoy. Dig the cheesy 80's uniforms, and as a lifelong Milwaukee Brewer fan, the frequency and ineptitude of the Chicago Cubs fielding is not lost on me here.
