Odds and Ends: Clearing up this whole Craig Sager thing

Craig Sager,the NBA sideline reporter with the ridiculous wardrobe, has been getting a lot of play today because it was mentioned that he was one of the people running alongside Hank Aaron when he broke Babe Ruth’s record. You’ve probably seen the clip 1,000 times by now but it’s below if you have been living under a rock for the past 20 years.

Anyway, the problem is that some bloggers think Sager’s one of the two fans who ran alongside Aaron around 2nd base. No no no. Sager is the creepy guy in the white trench coat that runs with Aaron from third to home and waiting to to interview him.

Just thought we’d clear that up.

Bill Buckner — I just saw this clip for the hundredth time. I never before caught the announcer mentioning Bill Buckner’s name in reference to the left fielder trying to climb the fence and go after the ball. I figured since this guy was a left fielder, it couldn’t be THE Bill Buckner, infamous Red Sox first baseman. But according to Wikipedia, it is. Apparantley, Bucker was also the big leaguer to wear Nike high-top cleats, and he made the All-Star team in 1981. Who knew?
