Video of the Day: Uecker gets "Late Show" love
When Johnny Carson ruled the late-night airwaves, it was always a source of pride for Milwaukeeans to turn on "The Tonight Show" and see legendary Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker take a turn on the guest panel.
These days, you can turn on the TV and see guests talking about Ueck.
A few months ago, comedian Artie Lange told a story about visiting the Brewers broadcast booth with Norm Macdonald, who happens to be one of Uecker's close friends.
Last night, Macdonald visited Letterman and spent part of his time telling Uecker stories. Here are clips from both visits. Too bad the Brewers already made their visit to Citi Field to play the Mets. When you watch these videos, you get the distinct impression that Letterman will want to visit with Uecker very soon. Maybe on a day off later this year...
Speaking of Uecker, there are rumors that another "Major League" movie could be in the works, which would mean another round of great clips from Harry Doyle. Stay tuned for updates, enjoy the clips and enjoy the Brewers-Cubs series this weekend.
Artie Lange on Uecker and the "cough button":
The Harry Carey story had me laughing out loud. They need to get Uecker to fess up and write a book. The stories are too funny to lose.
Yeah, the stories on Stern were compelling. I could see Uecker getting upset with the honest depiction (the stories on Letterman are very cleaned up) but I still love the guy. He's always been a trip.
Artie and Norm told a number of Uecker stories yesterday on the Stern Show on Sirius, Uncle Bob is trying to repair his image maybe??
Artie and Norm were also telling Uecker stories on Stern yesterday.
