This song had me laughing, but it is impressive all the same. The lyrics of this song are essentially a play-by-play based loosely on the 1962 pennant race. The Dodgers didn’t win the pennant that year, but they did get this high-energy song full of entertaining theatrics as a consolation prize.

Not “the pill with the poison’s in the vessel…” but darned good. Go Dodgers.
Another movie I need to watch…
I wonder if he ever sang about the Mariners while he owned them. This is almost as good as the episode of Mr. Ed where Ed gave the Dodgers batting tips.
I’d be surprised if he did. Seems he couldn’t shake his love for the Dodgers even as he owned the Mariners: http://thedannykayeshow.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-all-new-dodgers-song.html
