Bert Blyleven has been known for some wacky antics, but this one might take the cake. The Minnesota Twins announcer will be gulping down some creepy crawlies on-air before this Saturday’s game against the Mariners. Via Two Big Boobs….
Bert Blyleven will attempt to take charitable donations to a new extreme this weekend. A pitcher known for his sometimes wacky antics, and of course his unwavering belief he’s a Hall of Fame pitcher, will be raising money for a good cause by eating himself some tasty worms.
Blyleven v. Nightcrawlers, as the event is being dubbed, will take place this Saturday (the official fishing opener in MN), prior to the Twins’ game that night against the Seattle Mariners. The proceeds of which will go to a charity Blyleven has long been associated with, The Parkinson’s Association of Minnesota.
I can’t say I’d be as excited as Bert to eat something that was crawling, and just came from the ground, but I admire his commitment to a good cause.
Well at least it’s for a good cause. However, I wouldn’t put it past Blyleven to do this in the privacy of his own home. If you’re in the Minnesota area, you can check out the action at 5:30pm central time. Oh and if somebody could grab the video, I’ll be forever in your debt.
Bert Blyleven sure to get into the Hall of Fame after this… (Two Big Boobs)
