On this week’s Patreon podcast, we welcome, Ben Sisto, artist, curator and star of the documentary, Who Let The Dogs Out. Yes, as in the song. *insert barking* The documentary — available on Hulu — Who Let the Dogs out — tells the story of Ben Sisto and how he went looking for the origins of the Who Let The Dogs Out song. You ever Google one topic on the internet like “What’s so great about Britain” and five hours later find yourself watching someone make homemade tortillas? That’s what this documentary feels like in some ways — what started from an innocuous moment on the Wikipedia page of Who Let The Dogs Out sent Ben on a 10-year odyssey to find out, finally, who, actually, let out the dogs.

The song is a top 5 earworm. To the point where, even as I type out Who Let The Dogs Out, it’s a struggle to not say the woo-woo-woo-woo-woo part, but that is merely the entrance into this insane story. Most people know the song from Baha Men, but the song is almost like an anthem in the Caribbean where lots of people know the song, and it was around long before Baha Men, and they simply covered it. Only it wasn’t a straight line from the song being an anthem to being covered. The song writing credits, according to Wikipedia, are Anslem Douglas, but that is merely the beginning. The story takes twists and turns through Florida, Michigan, the Seattle Mariners and A-Rod (yes, seriously) and many legal battles. I can’t recommend the documentary highly enough.

Anyway, subscribe to our Patreon podcast to hear the show, and help support Razzball or buy an ad-free membership.

    I’m probably the world’s biggest Kevin James fan. Well, at least among everyone I know, who don’t even think he’s funny. And I saw Becky over the weekend. It was fun AF.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Really? Where do I see it?

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        It should be available on some streaming service (couldn’t tell ya which one). But I saw it at the Delsea Drive-in, in Vineland, NJ. Yes, I drove 2 hours to go see it at a Drive-in. Quarantine activities!

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Haha, that’s awesome! I haven’t been to a drive-in in like 10 years and don’t even remember what I saw…

          • Cram It says:
            (link)

            Seriously, I hadn’t been to one since I was like 10. I loved it…you can talk to the person you’re with and fart without anxiety.

              Grey says:

              And vape! (Or smoke, as I think you do)

              • Cram It says:
                (link)

                Yup! I’m a vaper these days.

                • Grey

                  Ha, nice! I was in Europe in Dec/Jan and everyone vapes there…Anyway, the flavors from France were amazing — I got Peach Melba, it is glorious

                  • Cram It says:
                    (link)

                    Like the toast? That’s the only melba I know.

                      (link)

                      Haha, nah, like peaches glazed in raspberry sauce…it’s wonderful…Though, admittedly tough to get now…Anything you vaping, flavor-wise, that you’re liking?

                  • Cram It says:
                    (link)

                    Nah, I JUUL now and don’t really dabble in flavors anymore. I’m a tobacco guy. Although I really liked their Creme Brulee, but it got discontinued. Thanks a lot Trump!

  4. Around The Horn says:
    (link)

    With such a short season proposed and saves/hold opportunities likely to be spread out more than a normal year, what about grabbing the primary closer and primary set up man from the same team?

    Do you think holds with the top set guys (Presley, Pagan, etc.) will be just as plentiful as Saves from the top closers? Holds are usually less predictable than saves.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      I think Holds and Saves will be equally unpredictable this year…If they try to jam 100-game season in 100 days, closers and RPs in general will not be able to go as often…I wouldn’t double up from the same team tho…I’d spread the risk

      • The Great Knoche says:
        (link)

        Latest is 76 game season with 75% salaries, although they took out Free Agent signing penalties for the upcoming off-season which could be a prelude to 2021 talks. Maybe players come back tomorrow with slightly longer seasona and 75% and we are good to go.

        Or they stick to no salary concessions and we have no season

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, hard to say…But owners are moving up on games, so getting more realistic, it would seem

    Grey!!!!

    Hey man! Great podcast I hope.

    a. Sorry no time today for anything except my obligations to (in this order)…

    1. Our dog
    2. Our children
    3. My test for that job

    Our dog was farting badly for most of the day. His doo-doo that he finally made just an 90 minutes ago still stinks to high heaven. I was 20 feet from the job and it felt like I was in the middle of it. I know, TMI, but I had to tell someone.

    Our children are fine.

    The test and test prep is all over now. Hopefully it will work out. I didn’t have all of the necessary intelligence to score 100% but maybe I scored enough to pass onto the next level. I’m too old for these tests, man.

    b. So, two questions.

    1. Domingo Santana (free agent) or Kevin Cron (rostered) or Anthony Santander (rostered) in this new potential 76-game setup?
    2. Domingo Santana (free agent) or Yasiel Puig (rostered) in this new potential 76-game setup?
    3. Do you favor more hitters on the bench or pitchers on the bench? I have Pearson, Gore and Peralta in one league on my bench. In the other I have a balanced attack of 5 SP and 4 RP. In both leagues I have Jordan Hicks on my IL.

    c. MLB quote of the day for June 8, 1972

    ‘The problem with baseball is that it is not played the year round.’

    Gaylord Jackson Perry, aka ‘Mr Spitball’ (No, he’s not I just made that up.). Wasn’t ejected for throwing a spitball until his 21st season in the majors!! Also famous for throwing the puffball (after loading up on rosin), now illegal because of Perry. Jim and Gaylord are second in win total as a brother tandem only behind Phil and Joe Niekro.

    Cheers,
    Ante

      A. Haha, glad to hear the dog is #1, as it should be — wishing you luck on the test!

      B. Domingo, though I don’t mind the other two

      2. I’d hold Puig for now

      3. More hitters — you can likely lose Peralta for now

      C. Man, that hits harder than usual right now

      • Ante GALIC says:
        (link)

        Grey!!

        a. Dog is so #1.

        b. So would you drop Peralta for Domingo in that league?

        c. I know on the quote, sorry. It was a bit of a rush job. Though to be honest, I am sick of the waiting game! Could you imagine MLB 365 days a year (366 this year and in leap years!!)? That would be awesome, just like Gaylord envisaged it. Thanks for not making a big deal about his name, I bet he got it a lot in the 80s or maybe not. Cruel parents for sure.

        Cheers,
        Ante

          Grey says:

          A. Always #1!

          B. Yeah, that sounds fine for now

          C. Yeah, sadly the MLB wants like 30 days of baseball
