The Dodgers beat the Giants on Thursday, 3-2. Brett Anderson went 7 2/3 innings, giving up 4 hits and 2 runs. Anderson cruised through the first 7 innings without giving up a run, but after they filmed a scene for Fuller House (the cleverly-named Full House reboot) during the 7th inning stretch, Anderosn faltered. Damn Hollywood! Via the LA Times:
The seventh-inning stretch was used to film a scene for the upcoming television series, “Fuller House,” a sequel to “Full House.” As Anderson was warming up, actress Jodie Sweetin called out to Giants outfielder Hunter Pence, then sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”
“I didn’t know what the hell that was,” Anderson said. “That was terrible. I didn’t know if that was serious or what was happening.
“I thought it was just her being awful at signing. I had to collect myself there for a second.”
Asked if he was a fan of “Full House,” Anderson replied, “I was, but I never watched it while I was pitching.”
“I never watched it while I was pitching,” is a great quote. What a diva. Think of all the athletes who play their sports on a daily basis while watching sitcoms. Do you ever hear them complain? No. Is there nothing in the Unwritten Rules about making a big deal about watching television shows during games? We may need to add that. Also, there should be something in there about Andre Ethier’s hat.
