James Apologizes to Baseball


ALSO, IN THE NEWS, LAST NIGHT
THE CUBS WON THE THE WORLD SERIES! FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1908. 1908, THAT’S SO LONG AGO, THAT
2016 ELECTION HADN’T EVEN STARTED YET. (LAUGHTER)
THE CUBS WENT 108 YEARS WITHOUT THE WORLD SERIES. THE ONLY DROUGHT MORE EPIC THAN
THAT WAS THE ONE I EXPERIENCED DURING COLLEGE. I’M JOKING. I DIDN’T GO TO COLLEGE. THIS IS A TRULY HISTORIC NIGHT. LIKE CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO OF A
GUY WHO HAS BEEN WAITING FOR A CUBS WORLD SERIES HIS WHOLE
LIFE.>>I CAN’T BELIEVE IT, I CAN’T
BELIEVE IT.>>James: AND HERE’S HOW
STRESSFUL IT IS TO BE A CUBS FAN. THAT GUY IS 41 YEARS OLD. IT WAS A GREAT NICE FOR THE THE
CUBS. NOT SO GREAT IF YOU ARE AN
INDIANS FAN, ESPECIALLY NOT SO GREAT FOR ONE MAN WHO GOT THIS
TATTOOED ON HIS ARM IT SAYS 2016 CHAMPS. THAT IS HOW SURE HE WAS THE
INDIANS WERE GOING TO WIN. IF YOU THINK THAT’S BAD, YOU
SHOULD SEE THE MAN’S LOWER BACK TATTOO. FEEL THE BERN, FEEL THE BERN. NOW I HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING,
GUYS. YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED THAT A LOT
OF TIMES ON THIS SHOW I HAVE TAKEN ISSUE WITH BASEBALL. I MEAN HOW CAN ANYONE SUPPORT A
SPORT THAT ALLOWS THIS TO HAPPEN. RIGHT? NOW AND I KNOW, I HAVE SAID SOME
TERRIBLE THINGS ABOUT BASEBALL IN THE PAST. THINGS LIKE, I DON’T LIKE
BASEBALL. I CAN’T BEAR IT, MAKE THE GAMES
FIVE HOURS SHORTER. BASEBALL IS SO BORING YOU MADE
MICHAEL JORDAN SUCK. IT’S LIKE WATCHING A GROUP OF
PEOPLE YOU DON’T KNOW HAVE A PICNIC. BASEBALL, WE’RE KICKING YOU OUT. WOW. THEY ARE– THEY’RE STRONG WORDS. — TONIGHT I HUMBLE MYSELF
BEFORE THE NATION. I’M SORRY, BASEBALL. I DIDN’T GIVE YOU A CHANCE. WE WENT OUT FOR A DRINK AND I
SKIPPED OUT EARLY. BUT LAST NIGHT I SAW A DIFFERENT
SIDE OF YOU. A SIDE I LIKED. AND I’M GOING TO SAY IT, YEAH,
YOU GAVE ME FEELINGS. AND NOW, NOW, NOW I WANT TO KNOW
EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU. WHAT’S A KNUCKLE BALL? WHY DOES ONLY ONE LEAGUE HAVE A
DESIGNATED HITTER. AND IS THAT SERIOUSLY THE
INDIAN’S LOGO. IT FEELS RACIST. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
AND SURE, I GET IT, THERE ARE TOO MANY GAMES, THERE ARE TOO
MANY GAMES BUT NOW I REALIZE YOU DON’T CARE IF I MISS A COUPLE OF
THEM, AS LONG AS I’M THERE WHEN IT COUNTS. AND PEOPLE LOVE THOSE KINDS OF
FANS. SO SOAK IT IN, BASEBALL, SWEET
BABY JAMES HAS A WHOLE NEW OUTLOOK ON YOU. AND HEY, BASEBALL, HOW ABOUT I
TAKE YOU OUT TO A BALL GAISM. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
— GAME. SORRY, BASEBALL. LET’S PLAY BALL!

  1. There was a world series in baseball? Must be one of these American things. They have boring baseball and we have boring soccer. Everybody wins

  2. Question to the Americans: Does everyone in the US like Baseball, Basketball and Football or how does that work? 😀

    Confused greetings from Germany!

  3. Right?! I kept saying to my 27 yr old daughter, "What does that mean? What does that mean?" Reference "calls". Yay Cubs!!!!

  4. 2:26 HAHAHAHAHAH "I humble myself before the nation." I was wondering why everyone is talking about the cubs… Goodness. Baseball hasn't been good since Jackie Robison (That's right, white Americans. A "BLACK" man. a Moor. A dark skin being. Deal with it).

  5. I love ya James… and yes that piece was fucking funny… A dedicated german fan you freaking idiot! … I will send Christoph after you 😉

  6. I swear the cubs winning was a massive fix. MLB saw how much global publicity Leicester got for being an underdog winner of the Premier League, so fixed it for the Cubs to win to promote the dying sport.

  7. As someone whos played baseball all of his life, I can agree with James about WATCHING it. Playing it is one of the most exciting things ive done growing up.

  8. I think we all want to know why only one league has a designated hitter…(cough cough) the American league needs have real teams and bat their pitchers (cough cough)

  9. Ah, the logo argument again. Maybe it's because I am a Clevelander, I feel differently. And there's talk about getting rid of it. But, you do that to Cleveland, then every sports team with a reference or logo hinting at something Native American will have to be changed as well. Just saying.

  10. WHY apologize??? He is bored of that game!!!! …. so am i! Never forget, 1999 Yankees vs. Mets, VERY expensive ticket, it was soooo boring i left before the game was over! NEVER AGAIN, If he is bored too, so ….. it's just fair!

  11. oh come on James… you know they just ripped off Cricket and made it into a game that only they played, so that they can be good at it, kinda like what they did with real football

  12. James, you're one of my favorite entertainers and, as a lifelong Cubs fan, I have only one thing to say to you….

    I don't understand the designated hitter either.

  13. I think James will come 'round when he finds out that you can nap while watching the game … remembering my elderly landlady who was a Toronto Blue Jays fan, she'd tell me to nudge her if anything started happening, and she'd catch the replay!

  14. the ignorance of everyone asking.. why is called the world series…forgetting that men in the sport come from everywhere around the world.

  15. I just love the women playing in the band! every monolog she is just tryingso hard not to laugh, I love watching her smiling in the backround 🙂

  16. only one league has the DH cuz the national leauge believes the pitcher can actually contribute…also, when there was a vote to implement the DH in the national league, the GM of the cardinals was on a fishing trip so there wasnt a complete vote taken. thank god.

  17. And this is from a guy that comes from a country where a bunch of drunks watch a bunch guys mindless kick a ball back and forth for a 1 1/2 hours.
