When I can't find a video of something I really want to see anywhere on the Internets. I fucking hate that! In this day and age you would think that anything that has been filmed or recorded since the time of Louis Lumiere* would be online somewhere. And most of it is.
But every once in a while I search for something and barely find a mention of it, much less a video.
Case in point.
We have been obsessed with Harry Caray lately. For those of you who don't know, Harry was a baseball announcer with the St. Louis Cardinals, Oakland A's and Chicago White Sox. But his last job with the Chicago Cubs is what he is mostly remembered for. He passed away in 1998, but comedians like Will Ferrell are still doing impersonations of him. And the real Harry was often just as funny.
In 1998, Will Ferrell did an impersonation of Harry at the ESPY Awards. I tell people about this all the time. He rips into Tiger Woods and a bunch of other athletes, but it is his comments about John Elway that makes it legendary. Yelling stuff like "how come he doesn't get his teeth fixed" and such. It was sooo uncomfortable to watch Elway's reaction to it. Like I said, legendary.
Except the legend has apparently died. You can't find video of this bit anywhere on the web. You can barely find a mention of it. Some intrepid soul put the audio of it on YouTube a while ago, but it has since been taken down. It should be available on ESPN somewhere, but...no, it isn't.
I'm stamping my foot and pouting about this right now. I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it, I WANT IT! Right now!
Come on, Internets! Get your act together!
