Nomar Garciaparra went there. Things got so out of hand during the Red Sox-Yankees game on Wednesday night that Nomar felt a “Dumb and Dumber” joke was appropriate. After a number of players left the game for various reasons — including Dustin Pedroia whose wife presumably went into labor — the broadcast team began listing off all the reasons big names were either run from the game or had to leave for personal reasons. Nomar saw this as a perfect opportunity to toss in the “pets heads are falling off” line from the beginning of “Dumb and Dumber,” and as expected, it flew over the heads of his colleagues.
Don’t worry, Nomar — the blog world has your back. He probably felt awkward since his line was so poorly received, but that’s what we’re here for. Brilliant work should never go unnoticed.
