Obnoxious, yes, but also funny. This umpire has been compared to Frank Drebin. Remember that time he umpired that game between the Seattle Mariners and (then) California Angels?
Sure you do.
Anyway, this guy has got a bit of that going on. You’ve got to think the players and coaches are in on the gag because who would stand for this otherwise?
Baseball is a serious game, dammit! That’s why there are unwritten rules!
I can’t quite tell what the hell he’s saying after each of these strikeout calls, but he clearly yells 2 Chainz after the first one.
Also, if you didn’t get that Naked Gun reference, here you go.
