the great kyle kendrick prank
This is an all-timer, if only because of the tremendous cooperation of so many to pull it off so convincingly. What a world we live in, that something like this can get done and then replayed on the Internet over and over again. And Bill Conlin, the Philadelphia Daily News' grand ol' ball scribe, weighs in with the humorous details of a similar gag on another Phillies player from the early 1970s, when technology was far more primitive. A final thought: Does anyone else think Phils pitcher Brett Myers, who finally reveals the gag to Kendrick at the end of that video, is a total jackass? What a handjob.
