Earlier today, we wondered why Bill Murray was hanging out in San Diego while his Cubs were in San Francisco. We now have our answer: He was getting blasted with Rick Sutcliffe.
We might question why Bill Murray doesn't have anybody better to hang out with than Rick Sutcliffe, but we're not complaining. Because — as we've been hearing all morning — Sutcliffe showed up on the Padres' local telecast and was absolutely bombed out of his mind.
When an ESPN personality is piss drunk on television, and there's audio of it, well, that's kind of the American Dream right there.
(We're still looking for video, by the way. If anybody taped it, operators are standing by at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
