Here’s another reason why you shouldn’t have turned on Zooey Deschanel for being “quirky” — she can sing the Star-Spangled Banner without putting her finger in her ear and trying to break it down.
Last week we shared with you the news that the star of FOX’s ‘New Girl’ and YouTube’s The Zooey Deschanel Show (not really) would be singing Our National Anthem before...
When I think about Ken Griffey Jr., I get to feeling a little blue that he never even played in a World Series. When I think back on the career of Kenny Griff, I am pretty sure about one thing: he deserved to have a shot at a ring, but it never game in two decades. He’s still going to be honored by baseball and be in some pretty historic territory for having been selected for...
Zooey Deschanel sang the National Anthem at the World Series Saturday, but apparently she isn’t a baseball fan. Deschanel currently stars in the series, New Girl, and Fox was nice enough to have the star of their newest sitcom sing before Game 4. After, the cast of New Girl and Glee watched on the third baseline. MLB analyst Joe Buck even commented, “A lot of times, the stars...
ARLINGTON, Texas — So far, the national anthem singers at this World Series have been an Alfred E. Neumann-lookalike from American Idol, Travis Tritt, one half of Brooks & Dunn (forget which) and the woman who once promised we could document her efforts to get Brian Wilson (the San Francisco Giants pitcher) and Brian Wilson (the Beach Boy) together for a lunch in California...
Game 4 of the World Series was AWESOME last night ... with the Cardinals nearly mounting a 9th inning comeback ... but Zooey Deschanel wouldn't know it, because she LEFT IN THE 6TH INNING!! Zooey sang the national anthem before the game ... and then sat…
Future Baseball Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr., was honored as the 12th recipient of the Commissioner's Historic...
Former Red and future Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. received the Commissioner's Historic Achievement Award on Sunday -- which recognizes contributions and achievements of historical significance. Griffey accepted the honor from MLB Commissioner Bud Selig at a news conference before Game 4 of the World Series in Arlington.

Not sure what the selection process for the award is, but I’m always happy to see Junior Griffey honored. One of my all-time faves:
Ken Griffey Jr., whose superior performance and effervescent demeanor thrilled legions of fans throughout his 22-year career, will receive the Commissioner’s Historic Achievement Award, which recognizes achievements and contributions of historical...

Ken Griffey Jr. was presented Sunday with the Commissioner's Historic Achievement Award.
Maybe I'm talking out of turn here, but I think Ken Griffey Jr. inspires a childlike love of the game in a lot of people from my generation.

It has been a network tradition to use high-profile sporting events to give some sweet seats — and even sweeter airtime — to television stars that appear elsewhere in its lineup. It's broadcast synergy at its finest!
I cannot, however, remember a time when a network poked fun at the traditional tush-grabbing like Fox did Sunday's Game 4 of the World Series. Watch as Joe...
Just look at Bull Durham, the 1986 Mets and Ken Griffey Jr. to see why
