During last night's Padres telecast, Rick Sutcliffe (who used to do color work for the local Padres team) made his way into the booth in the 8th inning.

And boy howdy, was he wasted.

An mp3 of the debacle is available here.

Not included in the mp3: Sutcliffe's mic being cut off and Sut saying in the background "I'm cut off!"

(edited after listening again to the actual broadcast... not so much a yell, as a drunken exclaimation)

Sutcliffe: George Clooney! You been reading about all that? You been seeing that?
Matt (or is it Mark?): [incredulous] George Clooney?
Sutcliffe: Yeah, he's up there with um...he's up there with the Congress, he's trying to get everybody to get everyone to go over there and...solve that thing.

Freaking hilarious. The story about Murray and Bellhorn that they tell after the clip, if true, is pretty funny as well.

Sut speaks the truth though. What the hell is Matty doing in San Diego? He could be big time. The guy is awesome.

If you can live there comfortably, which I'm sure he can, you'd be crazy to live anywhere else, wouldn't you?

(Although, I'm sure as soon as Tillamook gets a pro sports franchise, he's SO THERE. )

To me -- I turn on AM1000 and listen to the radio team... I'm not saying Hawk is bad, but "Put it on the board" is getting grating. I mean, he has no fire when they're losing; the only time Hawk gets pissed is when an ump makes a bad call....
