The Dugout: Who Can Make Me Vomit First, Taco Bell Or Brian Wilson

Taco Bell has decided to follow up last year’s 2010 MLB postseason Mariano Rivera “closer” spots with San Francisco Giants reliever and self-proclaimed funniest man to ever live Brian Wilson.

Video: SF Giants Closer Brian Wilson Says the ’86 Celtics Are The Best in NBA History
