Chooch Walks It Off, Gets Pied, Says Nothing We Understand

This might be the greatest interview of all-time.  Game winning heroics, shaving cream, an unintelligible Carlos Ruiz, and SARGE… it's all here.


Love how Sarge calls it "soap", then refers to Wheels as "Muff".  Brilliant.

  1. It does not mean unintelligent…. so, he IS hard to understand to some, and that would be an ok word to use then……
    CHOOOOOOOOOOCH! You are the man!

  2. Sarge: Homerun, walkoff, looking for a fastball in that situation?
    Chooch: Yeah, definitely I was ready for a fastball. And the first was a little in, I turned around too quick for [it]. And the next one, I tried to get a little bit closer and use my hands, that’s what I tried to do right there.
    Sarge: Well you had a good eye all year, you’ve been walking, taking balls, taking your walks in that 8th position, you’re looking for a ball to just try and drive and get on base.
    Chooch: Yeah, I mean, the last 3 years I was working…[PIED by Shane]
    Sarge: Well we do have kids at the stadium.
    Chooch: I was working so hard at my offense and so far I feel real good at the plate, so…[PIED by Dobbs]
    Sarge: Well it looks like we have a couple of kids playing around here today. Ruiz, just talk a little bit about Cole Hamels and the way he pitched here tonight.
    Chooch: Oh the last two starts he feel very good [and here’s where I start to lose track of it] you see it today, he right there with good angle and fastball, too. And he do a great job, so that’s good for us, you know have Cole Hamels back. You know, I hope they can stay healthy, and they can do it the same way they did it today.
    Sarge: Carlos, thank you for coming on the post-game show. Go and take care of some of that shampoo I guess you have on your head. Ok, Tom, Muff, right back to you.
    TMac: Sarge, thank you very much.
