Brockmire: A Modest Proposal
If you listen to the podcast, you know that I love baseball. So it should come as no surprise that I am a huge fan of the show “Brockmire”, starring Hank Azaria as a disgraced MLB play-by-play announcer. If you haven’t seen it yet, go watch it. It’s hilarious and awesome and it’s my new favourite show.
You would also know that I wrote a two part baseball epic entitled “Rebels in the Outfield”. (Part 1, Part 2) In those episodes Mark and I talked about how cool it would be to have a real baseball broadcaster do the play-by-play for the script.
It should also come as no surprise that along with baseball and Star Wars, I am also a huge fan of crossovers. Do you see where I’m going with this? The first season of Brockmire just ended. That means, Jim Brockmire might have some down time in which he could be a guest commentator for a couple innings. I mean, after all, he is (SPOILER) driving across the country from Morristown to New Orleans. And he’s not even the one doing the driving! What else does he have to do? Aside from drink, I guess.
So FanFiction Nation! It’s time to rise up! Let’s get @HankAzaria to do play-by-play for the Mos Eisley Dewbacks!
