Around the Horn

-In 1990, somebody at ABC had an idea. “What if we took a cop show and turned it into a heartwarming musical?” And the top brass at ABC said, “It’s so crazy, it just might work!” And Cop Rock was born. It didn’t work. It was just too artistic for American audiences.

-Pretty fascinating and scandalous history of American Bandstand.

Sal Fasano could be called back up to the majors. The Blue Jays need a catcher, and they just picked up Fasano. We play the Blue Jays next month. And it would be cool if, in the 9th inning, Sal stepped aside and let a ball get past him with a runner on 3rd in a tie game and the runner scored and then Fasano pointed up at Sal’s Pals, who have reunited one last time, and says, “That was for you guys.” That would be awesome.
