Have you ever poked around on Craigslist? You can buy, sell, or solicit anything. So it’s not surprising that my college friend Steev found a want ad for a Chinese Baseball Announcer. Or that he responded.
What surprised me is how long it took the interviewer to hang up on Steev during their (videotaped*) phone interview.
This is the same guy who used to torture telemarketers when they called by speaking gibberish (or saying "poopie") to them for as long as he has free time. The nature of their job made it h difficult for them to hang up on him, and he got the biggest kick out of that. Maybe he’s stopped by now?
Nowadays, if you’re in the Chicago area, you should go to see his live Saturday night game show called "Don’t Spit the Water" or one of his other Blewt! productions. Puppets by Noah Ginex, whom I revere as an even greater fan of The Muppets.
*Is is still okay to say videotaped if the thing was recorded on a DVD or hard drive camcorder? What else can I call it?
