News to us: Harry Caray once went out 288 consecutive nights

I got to talking with a buddy at work today who somehow mentions that Harry Caray went out 288 consecutive days back in his heyday. They knew this because they found the legend’s diary, he said.

WATCH: Orioles pitcher gives hilarious Harry Caray impersonation at Wrigley

When you think if Chicago baseball and Wrigley Field, you think of Harry Caray, probably about 4 beers deep, leading the daytime crowd in “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” as the crowd joins in.  And if you watched on TV, you were always treated to his color commentary some funny quips, mispronunciations, and random (sometimes accurate) facts occasionally about what he had for dinner...

C.J. Wilson Responds to CM Punk’s Challenge

The other day, CM Punk took part in the latest trend to hit the interwebs. No, the former WWE Superstar didn’t break out a hackneyed Harry Caray impression. He did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Seriously, it’s as if anyone with oversized black glasses thinks they have an open invitation to try and sound like the legendary Chicago Cubs broadcaster.  And, mostly, they come across as hackneyed copies of the impersonation the “Anchorman”...

Harry Caray diary tracked every drink, every bar in 1972
