Wish I'd Written That

George Will: “Next question. In 1954, Willie Mays — in an emphatic stroke of byzantine whimsy — made his over-the-shoulder catch off Vic Wertz. What was it not unlike?”

Silence

George Will: “Take it? Take it? Anyone take it?”

Mike Schmidt: “Um, the catch in Cincinnati ….”

Buzzer sound

George Will: “Sorry. It was not unlike watching Atlantis rise again from the sea, the bones of its kings new-covered with flesh.’

– Saturday Night Live, Baseball Quiz Show (H/T Joe Posnanski)
