If you’re on Twitter and you have a good sense of humor you should be following Rob Delaney, a stand-up comedian who frequently tweets funny and, I dunno, let’s call them lewd jokes. He’s great.
Anyway, the other day Delaney tweeted at the Dodgers’ official Twitter account asking if he could sing the National Anthem at an upcoming game and they actually said yes. So he’s scheduled to do so this Friday night before the game against the Brewers.
Delaney is a Red Sox fan and has sung the National Anthem before MLB games multiple times, including at Fenway Park, so he’s going to take it seriously and it probably won’t even be at all funny, but still. I’m hoping he somehow meets Vin Scully and they become best friends or something.
MLB.com has a full rundown of how the whole thing went down, with guest appearances by Andy Richter and a falcon.
