Finally, Video Of Joe Morgan Leading A Large Crowd In The Chicken Dance

Today is legendary second baseman/legendarily “stubborn and unreasonable” baseball announcer Joe Morgan’s 68th birthday. And what better way to celebrate your big day than have a video of you doing the Chicken Dance in front of a large Oktoberfest crowd make the internet rounds? We’ve been huge fans of this development ever since it was first announced, so having the video out there delights us to no end. And credit where it’s due: he seems decently into it. So nice work, Joe, and happy birthday. You were a way better sport about this than you were about statistical analysis in baseball. [Big League Stew via Eye on Baseball]
