Take a few minutes out of your busy day to enjoy a little Francisco Cervelli magic.
I’m not sure how to embed this video on the blog, so I’ll just link to it instead: Click here for guaranteed entertainment.
The video was filmed by Yankees On Demand and shows Cervelli performing every role in a fake television news broadcast. It’s comic gold staring everyone’s favorite third-string catcher. I don’t have the words to describe it. Feel free to fast-forward to the five minute mark, and be sure to stick around for Cervelli’s one-on-one interview with “the little guy of the New York Yankees,” CC Sabathia. Sample question and answer:
Cervelli: Who’s the good-looking catcher on the team?
Sabathia: You know, I don’t know. Like I said, Russ is OK, but I’ll have to go with my man Cervi.
Cervelli: Oh, Cervi? Again, Cervi? Wow. What a guy.
Seriously, you have to see it to believe it. I heard about it late Tuesday, blew it off until between games of yesterday’s doubleheader, and I plan to quote it in the press box the rest of the season. It’s Cervelli being Cervelli, and it’s brilliant.
