I only saw the last hour and a half of KDOC-TV Channel 56's epic Wally George special (and do check out our oral history of Wally George on newsstands this week, wontcha?), but what a show it was. Man, how I miss Wally--that old guy who used to sit with him, all the hot women and crazy men, the hilarious audience, and even former California governor Gray Davis, who appeared in 1985 and had the same head of hair...except it was black-brown.
But the best surprise guest was none other than boring ol', straight-laced Anaheim Angels manager Mike Scioscia. WHAAAA?!
Scioscia didn't actually speak--he was sitting in the audience as former Los Angeles Dodgers teammate Steve Sax got on the podium to rail about herpes and AIDS and other STDs in reference to whoever the guest was (both the YouTube clip below and what they showed on KDOC's special doesn't show that part). But kudos to Scioscia for doing this--over 20 years later, it remains the coolest thing he's ever done.
