With the Brewers in the playoffs, Josh tells Tom about their legendary announcer: Mr. Baseball himself, Bob Uecker. We honor a legendary yarn spinner by spinning a few of our own yarns, relating a few of his best yarns, reliving his legendary baseball career, and him leveraging that legendary career into a guy who'd sell us beer, appear on Carson, show up at WrestleMania, star on Mr. Belvedere, call the World Series, and eventually, settle in as the voice of the Brewers.

Battle of the Network Shows
This week, we look back at an unofficial TV genre, weekend dad TV, the kind of show that might fill the gap between the early game and the late game. Greatest Sports Legends combines interviews and documentary footage to cover the great athletes of the day. In a typical episode, Willie Stargell interviews Terry Bradshaw. Then an atypical episode parodies the show buy focusing on legendary bad player, raconteur, announcer, and actor Bob Uecker.

The Beatles and Elvis were some of the first two-way entertainers - both on the stage and on the screen.

We wrap up with a casting of the 2016 MLB season, calling on the likes of Ryan Reynolds and Alec Baldwin to help fill out our film of the Cubs championship season.
