In case you missed it, Johnny Damon graced the Late Nite studios Monday night to promote today’s home opener. The key exchange, in a nutshell:
DL: And the reason you’re off to a slow start is because you’re a bunch of low paid beginners?
JD: Fans, you have nothing to worry about.
More witty banter followed. Then they left the Sullivan Theater and Johnny tried to punch a few Letterman heaters down 53rd Street. And then Joe Torre stepped in to pitch a few. Say what you want about Johnny vs. Coco; our man hits better than Billy Crystal. (Who accounted himself fairly well, btw.)
PS: Annoying Johnny Damon crutch phrase “And whatnot.” I counted 3 uses, but there may have been more.
PPS: You know you spend too much time on the Internet when you live-blog a talk show.
