October Magic: Jim Leyland Sings The Hits

Share |

At the risk of rehashing yesterday's post on archival baseball silliness and the timelessness of things that never really had any serious contextual purchase, I'll just acknowledge that the video below is not new.

As far as we know, Jim Leyland has not gone on the Motown studio tour and sung "Betcha By Golly Wow" by The Stylistics since 2009, when the Detroit Free Press ran this brief, wonderful video of a turtleneck'ed Leyland putting his cigarette-mellowed pipes to admirable use. This does not, however, mean that Leyland is not doing this regularly. He is probably busy right now, honestly. His Tigers, lopsided and unequal and very good, are in the World Series, and so he probably does not have time to go to Berry Gordy's place and sing Eddie Kendricks songs. Probably. We don't know for sure. So let's hold onto that slim chance.
