Not sinceĀ  “I Want To Help You Ann” provided the soundtrack to Callie Thorne raping an unconscious Denis Leary has the Bill Hicks-tribute artist been in such a Boston-related scandal.

    I’m pretty sure he’s not a jew. Wasn’t he the ‘greek god of walks’ in Moneyball?

    Yes, he’s jewish. From ESPN.com: http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/wire?section=mlb&id=1859205

    Boston Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis was immortalized in the book “Moneyball” as the “Greek God of Walks,” but he is not Greek at all. A Jew of Romanian descent, he said he honors a sort of separation of church and plate.

    “To me, being a baseball player is one thing and religion is another. I don’t mix and match,” he said. “Baseball’s almost a religion in itself.”

    Josh,

    Baseball-reference can sometimes answer these sorts of questions.

    I thought Remy was literally going to choke to death. When they cut to Clarke he looked like he wasn’t even intending to say anything funny.
