ChicagoNow's Captain Meatball suggests The Chicago Cubs should hire Morgan Freeman to replace color man Bob Brenly in the TV booth.
I respectfully (and absolutely) disagree.
I have the ideal candidate. Lloyd Christmas from "Dumb and Dumber".
It's the perfect fit. And the ideal job Lloyd has long been seeking: No 40 hours a week. It would be the "lucky break" Christmas constantly talked about. And his pal Harry Dunne could occasionally botch up the 7th-inning anthem.
After all, didn't Lloyd once say, "I'll tell you where I'll go. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. "
Now doesn' that sound a lot like the friendly confines of Wrigley?
